I find the descrepancy between those two statements a bit concerning. Just adds fuel to my previous thought that Banjercito isn't real good at credit card business.

Trice-

I was hoping to be able to do an extended trip to your fiesta, but it looks like my working problem will interfere with my riding again. After motoring to the Detroit Aerodrome, I need to cram myself into a giant recycled beer can, and be hurled through the air at lethal subsonic speeds, subsisting on only stale pretzels and small warm beverages given to me by surly wimmenz. All to only end up in Or-fricken-lando

I would greatly look forward to the discussion regarding how the Mexicans make the rules in Mexico, no matter how little sense they make to the gringos to whom they are being applied.

Don't worry - same time next year. That is if we don't burn the house down this year.

In my view Mexico is not being greedy or short-sighted. Just smart.
TVIP deposit charge reversed this morning. Did leave me with a $13.00 transaction fee from
Visa so gotta add that to the TVIP cost from now on.

The Banjercito charges to my Visa all added up, BTW. No monkey biz goin' on. Turned TVIP in
on Tuesday pm. Charge reversed Thursday am.

For those interested in all things Mexico I found this interview with Charles Bowden really interesting and enlightening..

Charles Bowden is an author and journalist whose work has largely focused on the US/Mexico Border region. His writing has especially centered on the Mexican Drug War and Ciudad Juárez, the border city known as the epicenter of Mexican drug violence. His critically acclaimed book, Murder City: Ciudad Juárez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields, was published in 2010 by Nation Books. His latest work, edited along with Molly Molloy, is El Sicario: the Autobiography of a Mexican Assassin and was just released, also by Nation Books.

In addition to the "sound alike words" we now have...drum roll please..."feisbuck"!
It goes along with "jonron" and "donas".
And people think it is difficult to speak Spanish. No buey.

Very thought-provoking. Friends in Queretaro are working to document the destructive effects of NAFTA on agriculture and present the data to the US gov't.

A big issue here is "unintended consequences". A strong argument for changing any policy (drugs,NAFTA) must fully represent both the current policy outcomes as well as expected new policy outcomes. This video doesn't go that far.

Social issues don't simply go away. They just get shifted around within the society. Successful change requires knowing what we're changing to as well as changing from.
