Maybe We Should Put the 'No Trespassing' Signs in Spanish

Big trouble outside Burro Hall World Headquarters yesterday as an overexcited autograph seeker got a little too close the perimeter and found himself tasered by security. Given the crowd that quickly formed, we had to lay out some serious US dollars to ensure that nobody saw nuthin'. Still, we thought you'd enjoy this image captured by our rooftop security camera. In the upper left corner you can see proof of one of the great truisms of life in Mexico:


Whenever a crowd of 50 or more people gathers, it will always include a guitar-playing cowboy. Really, it never fails.

This reminded me -- our despedida is March 13, at 2 p.m., at an as yet undetermined cantina somewhere in the Centro Historico. If we can get off the couch tomorrow, we're going to try and do some research for exact location. Expect at least one guitar playing Mexican.

Please tell me it was the tasing of an innocent bystander that reminded you about this.

Haha -- no, sorry, it was the wandering minstrel walking down an old street (or a new street made to look old) that reminded me.

that's great. Here in the States, a guy was ran over by a car, and nobody stopped to help him. That's on a video that was watched everywhere around the world. It was such a cruel behavior. That happened in Stamford, CT. I am sure in Mexico, judging by these pictures, people would stop and help!
