I've got to start paying a little more attention here
So I've been reading about Dean and Mexico, "Mexico closes oil rigs in advance of Dean's arrival," "Dean arrival a 'disaster,'" and now today: "Stronger Dean rakes mainland Mexico (AP)." And well he might, I think, their human rights record is not very good! But I think it was really just a bit too much pandering for the Mexican government to try to impress Dean by showing him that they're trying to be more environmentally sensitive - especially since he apparently trashed them anyway! And I was further confused because I didn't think Dean was in the running this year, but, well, I am a bit out of touch with US politics, maybe he's thrown his weight behind some other candidate or there's some sort of reason why Mexico is bending over backwards to accomodate him? I mean, he's just a washed up presidential candidate in my book.
I did finally get that it wasn't Howard Dean, but that went on for way too long - like that old Rosanna Rosanna Danna thing about fairies colliding and hundreds of people drowning.
