Lion Hugs Woman

Ok...I had to search out something a little lighter. The following video is of an African lion hugging and loving on a Colombian woman who rescued it about 6 years ago.

Of course, they probably aren't thinking about the pending trade deal with Colombia. Yes...I know...can't seem to let that stuff go.

When Colombian President Alvaro Uribe made his visit to Peru on December 11th, President Alan Garcia pledged to assist his ally in his quest for free trade:

"I want to say to everyone, Peruvians and especially to Colombians: This treaty of free trade that Peru has signed with the U.S. will not be complete until Colombia has signed the free trade treaty with the United States."

19 chief executives sent a letter on Dec. 11 sponsored by the Emergency Committee for American Trade, representing CEOs from Microsoft, Citibank, McGraw-Hill, GM, Oracle, Intel, Coca-Cola, 3M, Procter & Gamble, Target, Wal-Mart and Exxon Mobil. The letter urged Congress to extend the U.S.-Peru trade pact to Colombia.

That must have been some thorn in it's paw!
