So Who Are These People, Anyway?
May 21, 2007:
This wasn’t really supposed to be a thread — WP puts it in automatically to show newbie WP bloggers what posting looks like — but since a few folks have posted in it recently, I’ll put up some stuff about us.
Phoenix Woman: That’s me. I live in Minnesota. My e-mail address is womanphoenix AT yahoo DOT com. I’ve been online since 1995 — a neophyte compared to most of my friends (one of whom got his first ArpaNet e-mail account in 1977). If I didn’t blog, I’d go nuts. I’m not a cat, but if I were, I’d be a fluffy orange tabby, kinda like these.
Charles Utwater II
He was raised in the desert Southwest, from whence he acquired his working knowledge of Mexican Spanish, Mexican culture, and Mexican politics. He’s not a cat either, but if he were one, he’d be a sleek, fastidious tuxedo cat — you know, like Socks.
2009. Whom the Gods Would Destroy, a five part series on the coup in Honduras. (Part 5 and links to earlier)
* partial translation of Juridical Analysis of the (Honduran) Coup, part 1 by Edmundo Orellana
* translation of Honduras, the Scapegoat Syndrome by Juan Almendares
And a number of substantive analytical articles from 2001ff in venues like American Politics, Online Journal, and Smirking Chimp, which someday I may get around to uploading, since link rot has claimed them.
MEC: She is also a human, or was last time I checked. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of current events, lives in Michigan, and serves as catstaff to two felines: Lady Lightfoot and Alexander the Great (but you can call him “Alex”). If she were a cat, she’d be a tortie or a calico, I reckon. [UPDATE: MEC suggests that she is in fact an avatar of The One Black Cat.]
