2nd in the World -- UNfortunately

Colombians love to tell you that Colombia ranks 1st in this or 2nd in that among the nations of the world. Typically, they will mention their flora and fauna, but recently, they marked a sad 2nd place finish in the world. Colombia ranks 2nd, behind Afghanistan, in the number of landmines deployed within its borders.

If you had been in Bogotá last week, you could have seen the following commemoration of this unfortunate 2nd place finish.

See the "monument" here:
