Some catching up to do…

Pink Dome on the tragic Mexican cocaine problem… er…

Cocaine! It’s back up in a big way

The U.S. says that nearly 90 percent of all cocaine entering the U.S. comes through Mexico. First, is this number based on cocaine seized? Estimated cocaine in the U.S. or just a number some government official pulled out of his ass before doing a booty bump?

Every time I read a story about the drug trafficking in Mexico to the United States, the report paints a picture of lawlessness, corruption and incompetence. What I don’t understand is why the feds are turning a blind eye to our drug addicted neighbor. Maybe it’s time for an intervention.


Surreal Oaxaca is in a mud-wrestling match with the Democratic Party (or something like that — the Democratic Party is surreal at times, but I don’t think they’re on the ballot in Oaxaca. Also in Oaxaca, I see Jennifer Rogers has her mojo back.

The Unapologetic Mexican is unapologetically “guest-blogging” at ¡Para Justicia y Libertad! Manegee from Migra Matters also fills in, while Edmundo takes care of some family business.

The low-rent correspondent is moving to a high-rent district on some new, top-secret mission. He also reports on the worst barbarism to have occurred in Mexico in many years — Taco Bell opening in Monterrey.

And, the Third World Shopkeeper is becoming a Mexican. For real.

    Thanks! I have always been amazed how you keep your own mojo going with this website. What is your secret? It is so easy to concentrate on other things…like my dissertation, volunteer work, or eating Oaxacan food. But I have found that blogging has become an essential part of my research…it is cathartic and helps document my time here. I’m constantly thinking of ideas and things to write about. I just have to do it! So, thank you for the encouragement.

    Mud wrestling Nancy Pelosi? Kinky…

    No, no Democrats on the Oaxaca ballot, although it may interest you to know there’s a guy named Lenin running for mayor
