The Times on Bolivia and coca

The NY Times has a good article on Bolivia, Evo and coca today! Fair and level, for the most part, the article even includes this great little paragraph:

Stripping the small, shiny leaves from a branch, Pasquale Quispe, 53, owner of a 7.4-acre farm, explained that she and other peasants saw coca in almost spiritual terms. "Coca is our daily bread, what gives us work, what gives us our livelihood," she said. "In other countries, they say coca is drugs, but we don't use drugs. It's the gringos who use drugs."
