No News On Howard AFB

The Panamanians supposedly opened bids for the acquisition to development rights for the mothballed Howard Air Force Base last Friday. The Internet's mum -- no news to report.

Shipping trade papers may pick up something later this week, but it may be quiet for a while as the Panamanians review the bids and negotiate with the primary contenders.

In case you haven't been following the story, China's in the bidding, as are interests from the US, England and Mexico. Should China succeed, it would have control of both the Atlantic and Pacific ports of the canal, and an airfield in the Western Hemisphere.

All brought to you by Jimmy Carter, who some Dems still think was a great president.
