Cruz Hernadez, oldest Salvadoran, dies

Although I write about topics like justice, economics, politics and trade on this blog, the most-read entries, by far, have been those entries about Cruz Hernandez. Doña Cruz, was purported to be 128 years old before she died yesterday, which would have made her the oldest person who ever lived anywhere in the world. Although there are good reasons to doubt that she was quite this old, her life story is still a rich one of growing up and living an entire life in rural El Salvador.
