Hit and run…

7 May 2010

A few tidbits of snark-food:

Corresponsales Indíginas reports on a cultural visit to various indigenous communities by Mohammad Hassan Ghadiri, the Iranian Ambassador to Mexico. How long before the U.S. right wingers are talking about possible Totonaca terrorist cells?

Bloggings by Boz writes, “UNASUR countries threatened to cancel their meeting with the EU if Honduras was invited,” which he claims was learned behavior from the United States.  Apparently, without Big Brother to the North to teach us to act like dickheads, we are unable to do it on our own.

Ah, shit. Alterdestiny discovers one more drawback to civilized living:

The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that toilet paper accounts for about 15% of deforestation worldwide.

Maybe along with fighting to save the Amazon and restricting the growth of palm oil plantations in Malaysia, we should reform our own bathroom behavior. Use less, use recycled.

And El Universal finds “Narco Paradise.” Arizona, of course.  If you must travel there, be sure to get a  Gringo Mask.
