A Place Where Women Rule


All-Female Village in Kenya Is a Sign Of Burgeoning Feminism Across Africa

Ten years ago, a group of women established the village of Umoja, which means unity in Swahili, on an unwanted field of dry grasslands. The women said they had been raped and, as a result, abandoned by their husbands, who claimed they had shamed their community.

Stung by the treatment, Lolosoli, a charismatic and self-assured woman with a crown of puffy dark hair, decided no men would be allowed to live in their circular village of mud-and-dung huts.

In an act of spite, the men of her tribe started their own village across the way, often monitoring activities in Umoja and spying on their female counterparts.

There’s a Vietnam Vet with a cardboard sign
Sitting there by the left turn line
Flag on his wheelchair flapping in the breeze
One leg missing and both hands free

Narcocorridos: the norteño music from HELL

About two weeks ago across the border from McAllen, Texas, a very popular music idol from Mexico was gunned down in a manner reminiscent of the assassination of Pancho Villa. Next to a black 2007 Chevy Suburban, witnesses and police found at least 70 bullet casings at the scene, 28 of which hit Valentín “the Golden Rooster” Elizalde killing him, along with two other victims. The drive-by occurred around three a.m. after a small concert Elizalde had just finished giving for his fans, many enjoying his songs about the lives of Perros (“dogs” of the Mexican drug wars). Ten minutes after he left the stage he was murdered.

What is so unusual about this grisly tale is its revelation of a brand new and unsettling phenomenon. Mexican Drug Cartels are currently using YouTube to taunt their enemies with extremely graphic video presentations accompanied by narcocorridos (the latest style of norteño music indigenous to the northern part of Mexico and our own southern border region).

Brace yourself for a rather disturbing multimedia presentation. In addition is the smuggled video from his autopsy.
