Will the real one percent please stand up

Last Wednesday I was congratulating my friend Jim from The Independent on his fine column explaining how to determine whether or not it is appropriate to use either an air conditioner or a swamp cooler. He has neither. From past experience however, he determined that an air conditioner works most efficiently when humidity is over 60%, while a swamp cooler works best with humidity being below 40%. In the East Mountains, by the way, you may sometimes determine this by listening for the sounds of frogs which are present (or not) depending on weather conditions.

As mentioned, Jim had already given up on both air conditioners and swamp coolers, something he joked made him a "ten percenter." I immediately associated his joke with the "one percent" of society that live without rules. Outlaws. The "deviants." Turns out he was talking about the "one percent" that has all the money.

Funny how a descriptive cultural term can flip from one end of our social strata to the other and still hold the same meaning. Unless you're the Osmonds.

In Mexico: an election or an imposition?

Following a hotly contested and seemingly fraudulent round of elections, a new president will soon take power in Mexico, representing the party that oppressed the Mexican people for more than 70 years.

Election or Imposition?

The dinosaurs rule Mexico once again.

The Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, held power in Mexico from 1929 to 2000, using strategies of intimidation, corruption and outright voter fraud to maintain its position as the country's leader. After the opposition party PAN took the presidency in 2000, the PRI became known as "the dinosaurs," representing the antiquated, undemocratic system of the past.

Occupy the Alibi

A Police State of Mind

Protesters being beaten in the Middle East. North Koreans fleeing across the Demilitarized Zone. That’s what we think of when we envision a “police state.” But the world’s largest police state that suppresses freedom of speech is the country we call home.
