Karolyn Kiisel recently sent out this nice postcard.
My friend Sergio Santamaria came over the other day
and helped me organize my collection of posters from the movement in
Oaxaca. Diana Ricci took our photo. Thanks, you both.
Ahhhh ... Cowboys.
The Madrid, Spain, newspaper EL PAIS recently ran
this example from the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibit in Havana, Cuba.
You'll look a long time trying to find this in a U.S. paper, no?
My friend Ayax always enjoys playing with Felipe.
And my friend sk dunn recently sent me this great portrait of
Brad Pitt taken by Robert Wilson in 2005. Now, isn't she

you know, well, they're really protesting something, aren't they?
Keep up the good work, fellas.
Now, you know I usually don't include ads on my
Website, of course, but, well, couldn't you just ...? Nice dog.

majority at this, uh, game.

I have always like this cartoonist from EL PAIS,
"I've dropped my cane and can't reach it."

In 1983, my family got the (stupid) idea to print a "Reichhardt
Family Cookbook," and invite family members to send in their favorite

Here's some nice kids in Mexico City who got the idea

and other genocidal dictators. It's a great idea that could be
applied around the world!
My friend, Ayax Cruz, was teaching these young actors
about stage make-up and asked them to pose for a picture.
And a couple years ago, Ayax did this nice little
computer drawing of Dottie. Thanks, Ayax.

The respectable Mexico City newspaper, LA JORNADA,
below, recently ran a banner headline proclaiming that 30 percent of the

to a casual observer.
