Mother Hubbard's Green Corn Waffle is my essential Tucson dish!!!! Disappointed they don't get a mention.
I was so disturbed to see the photos of the destruction of our desert. It really brought home for me the sheer enormity of how many people cross through every day. It's an extremely dangerous journey, and it's unfortunate that U.S. policies have something to do with why so many people choose to undertake it.
I was equally disturbed by this article's discussion of "rape trees" as if they were fact. This story has been popularized on the Internet by the Minutemen and similar groups, but so far there is no documented evidence at all that it is anything more than an urban legend or propaganda. At least, there has not been a case of a reported rape connected with any of these "rape trees." This claim makes me suspicious about other points in the story. What about those prayer rugs found out there? Did the author see the prayer rugs or talk to someone who had? Or did they talk to a BP agent who heard that another BP agent somewhere found prayer rugs, etc.? Rumors abound.
