23 October 2010

If it wasn’t for noticing an unusual number of hits on this old post, I would have forgotten what happened 23 October 1970.

A religious fanatic crashed an airplane into a crowded building for the first time in U.S. history. What makes this relevant to the Mex Files was that Francis B. Alexander, wasn’t so much a terrorist as a “tea-bagger” before his time… his inchoate rage against social change in south Texas being taken out on la Virgen de San Juan del Valle.
