I put up a mild post with some translations of Oliver Stone's statements in connection with his new movie, "Savages", which appeared in La Jornada and BBC Mundo. But for some more explosive commentary on Stone, see InSight Crime, one of my favorite sites for violent news, which will send you to some further links. I avoid writing specifically about this stuff. The idea of doing so scares me, and I don't know anything more than I read in well-thumbed sources in any event.
Mexfiles offers a post from Ganchoblog. All these folks point out that Oliver Stone's figures don't add up. En mi opinion, los gringos who live in Gringolandia get all their (mis)information from north of the border.
Regarding the elections in Mexico. MexFiles offers some good and amusing commentary in English on the Mexican elections for those of you up north who want to know more about what was/is going on. The Americas Program offers more comprehensive coverage, also in English. Yesterday we went to our dentist whose office is on a quiet street in a pretty middle class residential suburbanish area. The community bulletin board outside was filled with notices of peaceful activities for citizens to partake in to help AMLO in his fight against the Powers that Be.
