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.

Why Do Cops Frame And Kill Innocents

The outgoing guv issued a number of pardons one of them being an innocent young man of 23 with an IQ of 46 put to death by gas here in Colorado 70 years and two days ago. A sheriff from Cheyenne,WY framed this man. The link to this interesting article and the others is here. The store of the frame up is below.

My point here is that just the other day another was released on DNA evidence after spending if I remember correctly several decades in prison. We all know the stories and the numbers. In many of these cases the accused were railroaded into prison with lies and fabrication on the part of the badges and prosecutors.

They were doing the same thing 70 years ago in a case so blatant a guv with balls would call this sonofabitch for a sheriff up in Cheyenne a full fledged murderer. Doesn't make any difference if he's deader than a mackerel.

You fuckers with the badges and the guns stay the hell away from me. I don't trust you any farther than I can see you. And I know for a fact if you were told to by the powers that be, you would turn on "We the People" slicker than snot!


The most dramatic pardon issued Friday was granted fully and unconditionally to Joe Arridy, who was convicted of raping and killing 15-year-old Dorothy Drain in Pueblo in 1936.
Arridy, 23 when he was put to death, seemed to people who met him to have the mind of a child. He spent much of his life in an institution, played with a toy train on death row and smiled as he entered the gas chamber. His request for his last three meals: only ice cream.
"All I can tell you is I'm the happiest man in the world," said author


Robert Perske, 83, of Darien, Conn., who wrote a book about Arridy's case. 

Perske said that the murder weapon, a hatchet, was found in the home of Frank Aguilar, who had been fired by Dorothy's father. Aguilar was identified as the killer by Drain's sister, who survived the attack. He later confessed, claimed he didn't know Arridy and was also executed by the state.
Although Arridy probably wasn't even in the state at the time of the murder, he was framed by famous Cheyenne Sheriff George Carroll, credited for breaking up the Ma Barker gang, Perske said.After Arridy rode a train to Cheyenne while wandering the West and was picked up by deputies who suspected he was an Army deserter, he mentioned he was from Pueblo.


Carroll then got him to confess he alone committed the high-profile murder. When the hatchet was discovered in Aguilar's home, Carroll got him to change his detailed confession to say they committed the crime together. Arridy didn't know what a hatchet was, Perske said.
Ritter noted that currently it's unconstitutional to impose the death penalty on anyone as intellectually disabled as Arridy. 

Perske calls local attorney David A. Martinez a hero for scouring the author's documents to compile a request for Arridy's pardon. "The facts surrounding Mr. Arridy's execution were nothing short of appalling," Ritter said in an executive order. "Pardoning Mr. Arridy cannot undo this tragic event in Colorado history. It is in the interests of justice and simple decency, however, to restore his good name. Granting this pardon demonstrates that Colorado has, in fact, matured in its understanding of mental disability."
