¡COMO MEXICO NO HAY DOS! The "Real Mexico" from transvestite wrestlers to machete-wielding naked farmers. History, culture, politics, economics, news and the general weirdness that usually floats down from the north.

Nine years ago, “Operation Dragon” resulted in the largest cash seizure in Mexican history. More than a few Mexican would like to know what happened to the 205 million dollars (in US dollars, Euros and Mexican pesos) seized from Mexican-Chinese businessman Zhenli Ye Gon. “Hold, or hang, ” the explanation Ye Gon used with an […](image)

Everyone has seen the photos of the destroyed Regis Hotel, and Tlatelolco taken the morning of the 19th of September 1985.  The first — a luxury hotel — and the middle class housing project, were the locus of attempts to save lives, while in San Antonio Abad, filled with small factories and sweatshops, the media […](image)

Although it’s not as much talked about as it should be, the Cristero War was one of the great tragedies of the 20th century.  Certainly the carnage was nowhere on the scale of that unleashed by the Fascist and Nazi movements in Europe (and exported to Latin America), but both rested on a clash between […](image)

My reading of Videgaray’s “resignation”richmx2Photo: Proceso

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 19:45:45 +0000

I know the US media thinks everything that happens in the world somehow is a reflection of US interests, but Videgaray’s departure probably had less to do with Trump (although that was a handy excuse for dumping him) than our own politics. Peña Nieto was already in deep doo-doo (with open calls for his resignation) […](image)

If there is one thing you learn from watching Mexican politics, it’s that conspiracy theories sometimes make sense.  I can’t vouch for this:  I’m not familiar with the website I found it on, and it seems to have been cut and pasted from one of the political columnists without attribution.  Still, what it says about […](image)

According to news reports, Donald Trump will be in Mexico City tomorrow, for a private meeting with Enrique Peña Nieto. My comments. Whether Peña Nieto or Donald Trump has the lower approval rating with the Mexican people is an open question. The President NEEDS something — anything! — to at least make himself look like […](image)

Planes Flying over a Monster: The Writing Life in Mexico Cityrichmx2

I don’t know where I got the cockeyed notion that I might write for a living, but it’s an impractical one to say the least. Nobody writes for a living in Mexico. Or rather some people do, but those are people I don’t know and ultimately have no interest at all in knowing. Another look […](image)

Dang:  I though this one was a “no-brainer” for those interested in Mexican history.  Maybe you need to …. ahem… axe someone about it.  Don’t all come Russian in with the answer now.  A copy of the first edition of Gods, Gachupines and Gringos to the first person to identify this: Filed under: Uncategorized(image)

Garbage in, garbage outrichmx2trash

Tired of excuses for poor garbage collection, including pickup less than once a month, the Yosoy132 movement (thought to be extinct) came back to life in Playa del Carmen, sending out text messages urging citizens not to take their complaints to city hall… but their trash. Sunday night, about 30 citizens showed up, garbage bags […](image)

On 20 July 1848, at Seneca Falls, New York, Elizabeth Cady Stanton read to the approval of the first Women’s Rights Convention the “Declaration of Sentiments”.  Among the complaints of women in the United States was that the laws made by men “made her, if married, civilly dead”. The Women’s Rights Convention was less than […](image)
