Chuck D

Not many people realize that Charles Dickens was an early member of the Burro Hall editorial advisory board, serving two two-year terms in the mid-1860s, when this blog was just a one-page broadsheet. Today, we join the rest of the world - basically everyone but Dickens himself, who's been dead for 141 years - in saluting his 200th birthday. We last wrote about the great man over five years ago, when we were giddy to discover that the author of Oliver Twist has an elementary school named for him in Querétaro. In the years since, we've learned that it's actually a very good school, and in fact one of our smartest friends is a graduate of it. But it wasn't until a couple of weeks ago that we actually saw it for the first time sitting close to the eight-lane highway into the centro.


Maybe it's nice and cozy on the inside, but from out here it looks positively... oh, what's the word we're looking for?

Amiga, it lacks a pug. (Hey Burro Hall, how about a tail of two pugs? Methinks your pug looks lonely.)
