Georgetown Mayor Hamilton Green poses for a photo at his office in Georgetown, Guyana, Friday, Feb. 22, 2013. In colonial times, the governor of what was then called British Guiana would impose hefty fines on officials of the capital for refusing to show up and do their job of running the city. Today, this rugged South American country has the opposite problem: The mayor and municipal councilors in the capital and five townships showed up for work nearly 20 years ago and essentially never left.
