The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." "...it is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32) akakyakakyevich@gmail.com

I THINK this comes under the heading of muscular Christianity in action. I love the last line of the article: Guerrero is one of the poorest and most violent states in Mexico. When you live in a place where the parish priest gets crocked to the point where he pulls a pistol and shoots the mayor and his son during a religious festival, then I'd say that line qualifies as a masterpiece of understatement.
