The Joys and Concerns portion of our service this morning included mention of atrocities committed by the United States in Guatemala. I had already begun to write something about this on my Environmental Geography blog, since that blog also covers the geography of Latin America. The reference was to unethical medical experiments conducted by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in Guatemala the 1940s. My article is entitled Beyond Tuskegee, because of the connections to that better-known atrocity closer to home.
