About Secret History

Commentary on Latin America.
Mostly about Mexico - but not always.
Designed to encourage readers to learn about
the apparently "secret history" of 500 million people
spread across two continents
- but not always.
You can always count on a little snark.

Thank Heavens for Cameron Beckman and Patricia Espinosa

For the first news cycle since President Obama visited Guadalajara, "Disaster in Mexico" is NOT the leading news story today in the press. Every Monday I plug "Mexico" into the google news to see what the English-language press is covering, and today I had to get 2/3 down the page before I hit a drug story. A US golfer (Beckman) and the Rio Group / CARICOM / Ditch the Gringos / Summit topped the news. Sports and economics (which I suspect is the only US interest in the new Lat Am organization) trumped sex and violence today.
