Is this for real? It sounds like the City Council from Berkeley, CA, has up and moved to Irapuato.
Re: [gpk] Progress or "Gringo-ization"
These are excellent proposals, however. I pray they pass. Perhaps it will start a trend.
I am, however, quite pessimistic. In order for this giant step forward to take place, two things would be required:
1. Effective law enforcement. (I giggle.)
2. Locals would have to start giving a hoot about people outside their immediate circle of family and friends. (I chortle louder.)
If these two requirements actually materialized, I fear the social fabric of Mexico Lindo would come unraveled. The culture would crack. The government would fall, leaving a vacumn into which communists would seize control. This would require the U.S. to take firm action, cutting divisions from Iraq and bringing them to Mexico to restore peace and Capitalism.
At that point, perhaps we could actually ban cell phones in cars and tossing trash and blocking public streets with mounds of gravel, etc., etc.
I say go for it!
I wonder why this stunning development in Irapuato (and it is), if only at the proposal stage, has not inspired more reaction here on the forum. Strange.
Just me and that blonde above. Is she for real?
