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.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Methinks sumpin' stinks

"I read the news today, oh boy".... and once again, it was depressing.

Maybe I should just stop, but I can't.  Heat waves, floods, banking scandals and politics and politicians sinking even lower than we could imagine.  Keep digging, boys.

Got yer Voter ID ready?  Yeah, right.  Like it matters.  The best elections money can buy.  It's a global phenomenon.

And as for the Mexican elections...

Read the story and the comments from Tim Johnson's Mexico Unmasked.
We mexicans are being witness of one of the biggest frauds on our democracy history, we are also being intimidated by authorities not to protest against this imposition, this elections process has been plagued with hundreds of abuses against human rights, the main media here in Mexico is hiding the true and are accomplices together with some public institutions, this is so wrong, we are hopeless it seems nothing can be done to stop this anarchy imposition!
 And this long story from Noticias (in Spanish) with many of the details which of course, the MSM is ignoring.

All I can say is "oy!" or maybe that should be "ay!"

And this from (in English).

"The more we learn about Mexican president-elect Enrique Peña Nieto, the scarier things get. Behind the Pompadour and circumstance, there lurks a dark and nasty side to the pretty-boy president-to-be."
