Maybe I'm an offender: I throw around UIAM, BTW, IANAL and AFAIK — but ISTM that if even I know those acronyms (all of which I picked up here), almost all of you do. NAFTA, USMC, WASP, ACLU, NAACP — maybe I know hundreds of acronyms altogether.

Any clues? Is it bigger than a breadbox?
PAN presidents? Like Johanna, I’m thinking “Mexico” — center-right presidents from 2000-2012 (which at least broke the 70 years of PRI with something more like democracy). Of course, “center-right” means different things in Mexico (think more like Europe).

Or, it could be “pan-pan” — isn’t that pilot-speak for “total disaster,” even worse than “mayday”?
