The stones cry out
The statue is a tribute to "The Tourist." The ruin of much of the Spanish coast is so sad, and Torremolinos is the worst case by any measure. They run out of water about July. It's squalid.
Oh,Charles, on another topic: the League of Women Voters passed a resolution calling for "accountable paper trail voting" at the recent convention, which I attended. Sorry I jumped all over you about the League's position in a previous comment. You were right. Our more nuanced position, which merely called for accountability, allowed people to think we were compromising our principles. So we fixed that.
As for the aesthetics, nothing could be uglier than what was done at the Plaza of Tlatelolco. Innocent people gunned down by the hundreds by secret police.
Today and tomorrow, we will learn whether the election has been stolen. That will either be an insult to or homage to the memories of those murdered so senselessly in 1968.
