The Duda Abides

The newsweekly Proceso has our favorite holiday elf on the cover this week, with the headline "The Doubts." You can read their doubt-plagued coverage here.

Also, just a minor housekeeping note here: Staring on January 1, the minimum wage in Querétaro will skyrocket to US$4.58 a day, up 18 cents from the current $4.40. Because we're bleeding-heart liberal gringos, we initially offered to pay our 28 full-time employees (not the interns) twice the minimum wage. But because our 28 full-time employees are treacherous Mexican bastards, they've taken that to mean that they get a raise every year in conjunction with the Mexican salario minimo. So effective January 1, 2011, Burro Hall will become subscription only. Membership will be $19.99 a month, or $199.99 for the year. The Foto del Dia will remain free. Thanks for your understanding.

Does this mean that you have become so mexicanized that you join that most revered of journalistic traditions and wish all of us "Feliz Dia de los Inocentes"?

Or should I worry and start saving?

Congrats - anyone who figures that out wins a free subscription. Don't tell the others.

Hold that magazine upside down.
