Chilean leftists awarded former dictator Augusto Pinochet a symbolic "Oscar" on Wednesday for allegedly feigning ill health in Britain and duping doctors into claiming that he was unfit to face trial in Spain on torture charges. The youth wing of the Socialist Party of Chile held a mock ceremony in front of the army's offices, handing over a fake Oscar statue to a human rights activist wearing a mask of Pinochet and dressed in a convict's suit.

As California and the United States struggle with the issue of same-sex marriage at the polls and in courtrooms, Latin America is moving more broadly toward acceptance of this basic human right. Last month, Argentina became the first nation in the region to legalize such marriages, granting wedded gay and lesbian couples the same legal rights, responsibilities and protections as heterosexuals. Following suit, senators from the opposition Socialist Party in Chile introduced a bill proposing to remove the "man and woman" clause from the marriage law there.

Little more than a week ago, Chileans were concerned about a teachers' strike, next year's presidential campaign and the impact of the Asian crisis on their economy, a model of prosperity that is nonetheless vulnerable to international turbulence.

Ricardo Lagos' election to the presidency of Chile earlier this year set a new landmark in the country's long transition from dictatorship to democracy. He is the first Chilean Socialist president since Salvador Allende, who was elected in 1970 and overthrown in a 1973 coup staged by Gen. Augusto Pinochet, with the assistance of the Central Intelligence Agency. Throughout his political career, Lagos has been a Western European-style social democrat.
