When I respond, or seek responses, I think of the Internet Republic and the people [[whump]] and the places who have made our water world Eden brave and free and fair. Permitted, required, and impossible. Stand alone or stand with, whose choice to what degree [[Thn/]] O[[thn/]]ne water world Eden under "We the people" – created by whom?

NOT so long ago, Julieta Castellanos could walk to the corner market, order a stack of corn tortillas and two liters of Coca-Cola, then make her way home without a stray glance or an impromptu comment from anyone.

But getting around, she has found, is not so easy anymore. Dr. Castellanos, the leader of Honduras’s largest university, is now under the constant watch of a team of bodyguards, and more often than not, a stranger who catches a glimpse of her signature silk scarves will wave her down with something to say.

“You are the people’s hope,” a taxi driver told her recently.

“I clip your quotes from the newspaper and keep them in my desk drawer,” a co-worker confided.

“We are with you in your fight,” a waiter said.

Since the murder of her youngest son, Rafael Alejandro Vargas, 22, and his friend, Carlos Pineda, 24, by the Honduran national police in October, Dr. Castellanos, 57, has emerged as an unlikely hero here: a civilian willing to wage a public war with drug cartels and their grip on the nation’s institutions.
