He’s dead

4 July 2008

Jesse Helms, Satan’s latest roomie, had a profound impact on Mexican politics.  Just over a year ago, I’d written a post on Helms, Francisco Franco and Eva Peron, the three wierd sisters of the modern Mexican right.

None of his obituaries will probably mention it, but Helms, not Vicente Fox, and not the New York Times, was responsible for claiming the PRI ruled Mexico for 71 years.  Seeing that was in the late 1990s, and PRI was founded in 1948, I’d pretty sure Helms will not be remembered for his mathematical abilities.
