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.

Immigration, Arizona....and The Hunt for Red October


My wife reminded me of this exchange from The Hunt for Red October between the captain and the sub's doctor.

Do you think they will let me live in Montana?
I would think they'll let you live wherever
you want.
Good.  
Then I will live in Montana, and I will marry a
round American woman and raise rabbits,and she
will cook them for me, and I will have a pickup
truck...or a... possibly even a recreational
vehicle and drive from state to state.
Do they let you do that?
Yes.  
No papers?  
No papers.
Except, of course, for Arizona.
