Cities of Brotherly Love

We'd like to express our perverse admiration for the government of Guanajuato's decision to post huge ads all around Querétaro urging people to come celebrate the bicentennial there instead of here.


We lived in Boston in 1976, but we don't recall Philadelphia placing bus stop ads coaxing people to abandon Massachusetts for the real cradle of liberty.

Did you knew that, Guanajuato is the craddle of independece because the Corregidora wasn't considered a heroine until the 20th Century, because women had no right to claim such important roles in history, and that is why we have a Father of the country (Miguel Hidalgo) and not a Mother of the country.

If she was given the recognition she deserved, we will be doing a "Zapatazo" each year instead of a "Cru" or "Shout"

Interesting since "La Conspiracion" took place FIRST in Queretaro. Damn those Pained Heedowlguns! (Dolores Hidalgo).

Utterly boring analysis of turgid issues. What a supercilious, self-righteous ass.

Not to be all thin-skinned and stuff, but that's kind of a harsh response to a photo of a bus stop, isn't it?

I suppose the semi-comatose American retirees in Queretaro may find this stuff vaguely more engaging than USA Today

Really? Why - what did USA Today think of it?
