Two links contain insights concerning Mexico

Here’s a link to a great editorial in The Gazette:
I am refering to only the first editorial in that section, which is entitled “Freedom under fire: Mexican journalists deserve combat pay.” It illustrates very well one of the themes of my book – “elements that render neighboring cultures so incompatible.” And here’s another link that reveals the current frontrunner to become Mexico’s next president:
I want this blog to be two things: a place that is an accurate and up-to-date resource concerning Mexican (and Norteño) culture, and an opportunity for dialogue. Please comment on any of the blog entries that I post. I value your participation.

About Me

My photo
LEE CUESTA, a journalist who worked in Mexico City, has written about the complexities in Chiapas for a decade, acquiring firsthand experience in both Tuxtla Gutiérrez and San Cristóbal de Las Casas. As a fully bilingual writer, the author has been published in periodicals such as Northwest, Eternity, World Pulse, Indian Life, Interlit, Prisma, El Faro and Apuntes Pastorales. The articles receive international response. In addition, Cuesta is the author of the novel entitled Once: Once, about religious intolerance and an independence movement in Chiapas, along with a conspiracy to recapture territory that once belonged to Mexico. In it, he combines the skills of a storyteller and investigative reporter to penetrate the historical, social and spiritual dimensions of this convincing tale. It provides a rare and stunning glimpse into the elements that render neighboring cultures so incompatible.
