I emigrated from New England to Rio Rico, 15 years ago this past June. I deliberately chose a location near the border with Mexico. That's likely because when I grew up as a poor kid in a western Pennsylvania coal-mining town, I was inspired by a 7th grade geography teacher who loved and admired Mexico. Also, by a high school teacher of Spanish, a musical language I've come to love. I also admit to being a hypocrite. Because I have so little patience with my friends that can only feel comfortable viewing human behavior only in terms of "right vs. wrong." Which means, I suppose, that when I put them on my poop list, I've also joined the "Right vs. Wrong Club?"

CW13? You don't like Safier's comments and express it by calling him a name?

How juvenile of you.

I am intrigued by your comment: "You mean like using the IRS against Tea Party?"

This is news to me.

Do you have a link?

I'd really like to read more about it.

Re: “On Camps, Traffic and Reporting in the Middle East for the First Time

Nice, human touch in your work. The photos of the kids are priceless.

By the way are you raising funding on, say, Kickstarter? If so, count me in.

Thanks...

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I think, McLaury, you may have skipped 4th grade. That's when we all learned the meaning of "it's."

Which is the contraction of "It is."

You used "it's" when you meant to use "its."

Shame on you...

Re: “Just When You Thought Crazyland Was Less Crazy: SB 1062 Part II?

Would any perceptive reader here be shocked to learn that Rick Jason might possibly be that overweight, aging, and quite possibly, closeted, but definitely frustrated homosexual that's been hanging around the downtown bus terminal?

Didn't think so...
