Yaqui Carranzanistas

   I am fascinated by something called "The Porfirian Peace." It lasted for about 35 years. Here are some of my notes about it.

Daily Whip Outs: "Porfirian Peace Notes"

   Also noodling other characters and ethnic types down on the border. . .

Daily Whip Out: "Yaqui Gunner"

   One of the underreported aspects of the border is just how multinational and polyglot it was, back in the day.

Daily Whip Out: "Sabay, Sabay"

      According to my son Tomas, "Sabay, Sabay" is Thai for relax, or chill out.
