thanks man....and dont worry about my creamed corn needs, people!! Cause last week I met a guy on the bus, in tj.... He told me he can get me as muuuch creamed corn as I need. Kilos of it, ese. For much cheaper than what I pay in the states. He said...this is the puro maiz, man, he said its the best creamed corn around. And if that fails, I can always hit up the grocery store in san diego. I figure i'll try to seduce some mexican police women into my creamed~corn pool, feed her my mordita, and then scream at her to get the hell out once we are finished. This is now my life's legacy. ps~ im not delusional, I must stress this fact.

I like the idea! I made my way to the xolos game today only to find out they were sold out. But i learned a lot, which buses and cabs to get you to the stadium. Now i just have to figure the ticket part out. Yeah i would love to learn whats up those streets and I want to go too one of the large swapmeets.

If you go to the bullfights, it better be to root for the bulls. Otherwise you deserve to wander out wasted into the ring and get gored or trampled in the stands.

Just because a blood sport that involves the torture of animals is a tradition doesn't make it right or moral, and not all Mexicans including myself condone the bad habits and traditions the Spanish ancestors brought over here. Last year Catalonia banned bullfighting and the same needs to be done here. Portuguese-style bullfighting is more humane, in that thick pads are strapped around the torso of the bull so that the steaks will stick to the pads instead of piercing the bull.
As for abortion, I'm pro-choice. The notion that an embryo or a fetus that cannot survive outside the womb without artificial life support constitutes a full-fledged human being is based on superstitious nonsense.

Other types of livestock are abused in similar ways also. I don't eat meat, but I don't oppose others killing animals for food as long as it's done as swiftly, painlessly, and humanely as possible. Nature is predatory, and needless-to-say there are a number of animal species that will mame, kill, and eat homosapiens.
Except for kids who are forced to go to bullfights with their parents, I disagree with your last sentence. I doubt if you caught someone in the act of torturing one of your pets, that you would not be inclined to inflict bodily harm on such a savage. Torturing bulls for a living or paying to go see such glorified animal abuse is sick and barbaric, and I have no sympathy for matadors and paying spectators who get gored or trampled by those defenseless animals.

If they are goring and trampling, then they aren't exactly defenseless.
While Bajashrink and I don't exactly see eye to eye about las corridas, I share his lack of sympathy for toreos who catch a horn. They should have been better bullfighters.

Bullfighting is a dying tradition in Mexico. (Hey look! A pun!) When I lived near the ring in Playas the season often closed early both do to lack of attendance and heavy protests by Mexican animal rights activists. Most, certainly not all, modern US slaughterhouses are designed to keep the animals calm until the last moment, then they usually don't know what hit them. No need or advantage to torturing them and makes the job harder physically for those who work there when the animals are freaking out. I hate the torture of animals but love my carne and pollo asado.
