This is Bistek al la Mexicana a common dish found many places. There are several places I get this some better than others but all real decent! Kind of a tomato based sauce with generally pretty tender pieces of beef and a fair amount of it. The rice is pretty generic but the frijoles can be something else. This also includes as many fresh made in front of you tortillas you want and brought to you with a smile. Something like this costs around 50-60 pesos or $3. The squeezed as you watch orange juice is 20 and brings the price up a bit but worth it. Nothing in the States I've ever had compares to this not even close plus it'll cost 7-10 smacks. I don't know what I'm going to eat when I return. It will be an adjustment as I do this so much that is go into Puerto Vallarta on the south side and have me a excellent lunch with "real" Mexican food not the slop I get back there. I do not plan on eating out much at all only at maybe three select places. Pricey yes but worth it because it's so good. I threw away so much money last summer eating way overpriced shitty food. Several times the food got thrown away as well. The whole of Mexico is an eating machine I tell you. I'm gonna miss this.

I feel good and and think the higher temps and humidity contributes to that. It's the same every time. After a month or two you realize and say " Hey I feel pretty damn good!"

Just as important I believe the food made fresh with wholesome fresh ingredients as well contributes to that. Get off the bus in town the food smells everywhere make me hungry just like that.


Can You Say Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder

A woman who helped her boyfriend kill a hiker and bury his body in Glacier National Park in 2001 said it came as a relief to her when she was diagnosed with a condition related to her pregnant mom's heavy drinking. "If I had been not brain damaged, I don't think I would have committed that crime."

She's probably correct. This piece goes on to use the number of infants affected at 10,000 with another 30K less seriously damaged.

I'll just say that our country has a very serious negative association with this drug and for many reasons all wrong.

I will take issue with the 10,000 figure and with no proof whatsoever say there are many thousands more. There are so many stupid fuckers around this has got to be part of it.


  1. I think inbreeding has something to do with all the stupid people in this nation.

  2. Maybe it's the stupid people who buy these cockamayme defenses for horrible crimes.

  3. I think this is indeed scary. Just think of all the meth babies who'll soon enough become adults and have an enormous negative impact on our health and criminal justice system. This is just another reason our health care system should be overhauled and become a system of prevention/intervention not reactionary/criminalization based on the weakness found in all humans. At the end of the day we'll find the connection among man-made chemicals and autism, cancer, etc.

  4. Anon, we already know most of the causes for these diseases, just as we knew that smoking tobacco caused lung cancer, emphysema, high blood pressure and heart attacks. The tobacco industry still publically denies that their product does any harm even after the release of their own studies proved they do.
    Corporats and their lapdog media deny, deny, deny and deny
