The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

Election aftermath continues

Tell me how you feel....
Oh my...
And then there is this
from LAHT
In a press conference Wednesday in this capital, the runner-up in the balloting, leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, said he and his supporters are providing ample evidence to the TEPJF electoral court to secure “the invalidation of the presidential election as clearly in violation of the constitution.”

“We’re talking about billions of pesos” of illicit origin directed to the PRI’s campaign to buy at least five million votes, Lopez Obrador, the candidate of a coalition led by his Party of the Democratic Revolution, or PRD, said.

“The whole truth can be ascertained. If we’re providing this evidence (of illegal activity), imagine what officials with the Finance Secretariat and (the CNBV banking regulator) would be able to find out, if they don’t know already,” Lopez Obrador said.

“In the federal government, they already know what this was about,” Lopez Obrador said, adding that he doesn’t know why President Felipe Calderon’s conservative National Action Party, or PAN, administration does not “reveal what they know about the use of illicit funds for the benefit for Peña Nieto.”

But “hiding information isn’t going to work because we’re very persistent and aren’t going to give up,” he said in comments aimed at federal government officials and TEPJF justices.
