John Boehner tears into Senator Ted Cruz

Here's what former SotH John Boehner had to say about the GOP-TP establishment candidate yesterday in a forum at Stanford University.  “Lucifer in the flesh,” Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

Wood sculptor at work in Todos Santos

This amazing wood sculptor was hard at work in a hallway adjoining an art gallery in El Centro de Todos Santos.


Marriage banns in Mexico

By Jack Brummet, Mexico Travel Ed.

I don't remember seeing these before in Mexico, but in the state of Baja California Sur, the Catholic Church still publishes marriage banns.  These were posted in the lobby of a church in Todos Santos. The banns more or less replace a marriage license and allow anyone to object to a wedding prior to its occurrence.  Most priests--in an article on banns I read--say they cannot recall anyone ever objecting.
