Born resisting

02/02/2017
Very few Americans of European descent have ever in their lives been face to face with fascism. I know of three in our community. They were born and raised in Europe, so they watched it all happen. The rest of us know a few things about it because we read...

Mexico in descent

01/26/2017
The year 2017 appears to Mexicans as dark and unpredictable. Not only because of the anti-Mexican declarations and actions of Donald Trump, the new and unusual United States President, but also because of the economic and political debacle that, since 2014, has made life more and more difficult in Mexico...

Men’s circle supports the journey of being a man

01/26/2017
Being a man in the United States is not so easy. There are many and mixed expectations, coming from many external sources—media, movies, advertising, spouses, girlfriends—and our own inner ones. There are rarely mentors or community enclaves to guide us on the journey. I didn’t realize how much I needed...

México en picada

01/19/2017
2017 aparece ante los mexicanos como un año incierto, oscuro e impredecible. No sólo por las declaraciones y medidas antimexicanas de Donald Trump, el nuevo e insólito presidente estadunidense, sino por la debacle económica y política que desde 2014 va haciendo las cosas cada vez más complicadas y difíciles para...

The emperor’s naked army marches on

Dispensary threatens valley life

01/05/2017
I am a San Geronimo Valley resident and I want to comment on the marijuana dispensary proposed for 6700 Sir Francis Drake in Forest Knolls, the property now inhabited by the Farm Stand, Garageland Marketplace and the espresso stand. First, the proposed location is directly adjacent to Marin County housing...

Destiny rides again

12/28/2016
Whatever comes next in this mondo bizarro political world, you and I are still here. That’s all you need to know. I’m addicted to reading everything I can on the subject of the “awful unexpected event.” The point about Trump that I have yet to hear anyone raise is that...

México temeroso de Trump

12/08/2016
La dependencia de México con Estados Unidos (EU), en mayor o menor grado, ha existido siempre. Se incrementó al final de los años 80, cuando el presidente Carlos Salinas de Gortari, del dominante Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI), hizo reformas económicas, privatizando los activos del estado y firmando el Tratado de...

Here come the carpetbaggers

12/01/2016
Marin is quickly moving forward with the permitting of up to four medicinal marijuana dispensaries in unincorporated parts of the county, selected from the 12 applications that were submitted. The green rush is on and the San Geronimo Valley may be next in line to become just another notch in...
