Wednesday, December 28, 2005Happy New Year
The blog has been a casualty of the end-of-semester-rush-off-for-the-holidays-get-ready-for-spring-semester season.
Here's to a happy new year and more blog posts in the spring.
Oh. And a picture of me with my nephew Gage.

Saturday, December 10, 2005Mexican presidential campaign slogans
Well, not really. But Cuidad de Mexico links to some funny suggestions. (Go there to see Lopez Obrador as Robin Hood.)
Also, the WPost is calling the upcoming election a Junkyard Dogfight. I question the appropriateness of that title. Would a tight race with negative campaigning and accusations of (ok, well, evidence of) corruption in say, Denmark, create a similar comparison? The article has several factual errors and some questionable interpretations. Tlalpan, working class? Tlalpan is HUGE, and has all types of residences, many of which are solidly middle class, not working class.
Also, the author continues to make a comparison between Chavez and Lopez Obrador, even though she mentions that a U.S. official questions the comparison. Lopez Obrador is on the left, but was clearly very responsible last April during the desafuero proceedings. Even AMLO understands the importance of foreign investment to Mexico.
