Sábado Gigante

* Yes, we know it's Tuesday. So? Anyone who wants a refund can apply for one in person at our office in Guadalajara.


* It's stunning how few of the potential GOP candidates are considered crazy and hate-filled enough for the nativists.

* Great April Fool's sign at the US-Mexico border. Of course, Mexicans don't celebrate April Fool's Day, so maybe it's not.

* Mexicans on Death Row.

* White supremacist on death row.

* In the Failed State of Arizona - where the grass is always greener! - the Neo-Nazi-curious senate president isn't just a racist, he's corrupt, too.

* Eventually, everyone who comes to Mexico gets murdered, including the dinosaurs.

* If Tijuana's police chief is so wonderful, why is Tijuana more violent than ever?

* The story of a couple of Americans being gunned down point-blank at the Tijuana border crossing turns out to be a little more complicated than initially reported. The big question is not, "Is cartel violence targeting Americans?" but, "Who in their right mind would try to steal a mixed martial artist's girlfriend?"

* Peace has finally been achieved in Mexico's drug war! Unfortunately, it's between the Zetas and the Mara Salvatrucha.

* "Following devastating and systematic episodes of abuse from her ex-husband, she decided to turn her life around, reinvent herself and become the vampire woman."

* New Yorkers: Daniel Hernandez will be discussing his book in NYC on April 14. You get 50% off the cover price is you tell him "the guys from Burro Hall said your poster had the worst New York City subway map ever!"

* Lesley Téllez on the ambivalence of living in a place where a lot of stuff sucks.

* Mexico's worst Mexican restaurant: Neptuno, located in the Reclusorio Norte prison.

* For those about to rock in Tzotzil, we salute you.

* A couple weeks ago, the entire local legislature was replaced by children. No one noticed.

* This "flashmob" stuff is getting a little silly. We're not sure why professional singers bursting into patriotic songs is considered a flashmob, but this is still a lot better than the usual instrumental Muzak this restaurant usually plays.



* Hippies in Hidalgo got a special equinox treat: several dozen UFOs. Duuude...

* Sure, Japan's nuclear one survived an earthquake and a tsunami, but Mexico's survived an earthquake and the chupacabras.

* How to do Mexico City with your faithful canine companion.

* Star Wars loteria cards.

* The Week in Cheesecake: We don't know who Kate Bosworth is, but she's all we got.

* J.Lo does Chichen Itza just like any other tourist.

I wheezed my way to the top of the Sun Pyramid at Teotihuacan so I had my friend take a photo of me proving I made it to the top. In the same photo there is a woman, unknown to me, wearing the most ridiculous high heels. Her accomplishment of making it to the top in those heels took the wind out of my sail.
