Doodle Rivera

Today Diego Rivera becomes the first (as far as we're aware) Mexican to receive the coveted "Google Doodle" honor, on the occasion of his 125th birthday.

Readers better versed in Rivera's life are invited to answer the question "Would being 'mascot-for-a-day' to an enormously powerful, privacy-invading, information-sucking corporate octopus like Google delight or appall the Marxist Rivera?"

Of course, he's been on the front of Mexico's largest banknote for over a year now, and has yet to roll over in his grave, so he'll probably survive this.

They definitely had a Dia de los Muertos doodle a few years back, and I have a vague recollection that in September of 2010 there might have been some Hidalgo/Independencia imagery.
