"The extradition of the man who gave Panama its banana-republic image as a thuggish, corrupt country has some people worried –- not so much about Noriega himself, but rather how the public will cope with his return and the memories it stirs. Panamanians are ... relentlessly optimistic, loath to ponder their own recent history of iron-fisted rule under strongman Gen. Manuel Noriega, still known disparagingly on the streets of Panama as 'pineapple face.'" (09/26/11)
