The Tobacco Police are in the streets tonight…some 333 agents are circulating, looking for warm ashtrays and bad breath. Will they be in uniform and if so…looking like what? or are they undercover?….more likely. ‘Up against the wall…spread ’em…assume the position!’  No ifs, ands or butts. The country can’t find its ass with both hands, the politicians regularly assault the public pubis and no one gets more than a slap on the wrist. How is it that murderers, thieves, politicians and rapists(is there a difference?)are never caught, apprehended, arrested, charged and sent up for a hundred years? And the government can assign 333 butt-police to stamp out the evilness of that Honduran herb that mysteriously is sold over the counter everywhere?  Tobacco, damn it…not the other herb. I will sleep better tonight, knowing that my rights are being protected, my health and well-being is at the top of the government’s list and that there are enforcement agents acting on my behalf at this very moment, crushing the dirty swine and social deviants that comprise this filthy group of malcontents and crypto-narcoleptic-social democrats. Semper Tyrannis.

Which leads to a great local newspaper, AntiguaNetNews.net…everything a local paper should be… and breaking the story about some local counterfeiters…’busted with the plates and printer cartridges, two well-nourished Salvadorean girls were led away in chains. One of them has a husband who was arrested on the same charge last year…’arrested, tried and convicted: sentenced to a whopping 90 days and released, his debt to society paid. Insanity rules and the clowns run the circus…sometimes I forget that.   Hey, 100 quetzal notes are worth about $12.50 right now…if you print up 20 lbs worth($1,000,000 in 100’s) we’re talking $100K plus…hmm..if you pass ten a day…forget about it.

This is a lame end to the week, of which it has been tulmultous(good)…the wheels turn and they haven’t come off(always a good thing). The beach next week for a couple of days…the pace is killing me…’really glad I wasn’t in Roatan for the ‘quake. Alas, no seamy/seedy photos…maybe, just one?

 Leah, at Hector’s, wasn’t feeling well and left early…The Hector Show kicked in…’did’t miss a beat and liked it, orchestrating every move and introduction without missing a beat. It is truly neat to see a professional at work…fine, the quiche wasn’t heated all the way thru and it was yesterdays….who cares? Projects are being wrapped, stuff is being printed and life oozes forweird.

Die, Triscuits!  at $8USD a box, these imported snack foods are heavily(60%)taxed by Guatemalan Customs….por que? are they protecting us from ourselves, while we’re not smoking in public nor riding tandem on a motorscooter while talking on a cell-phone?

The rocky path of science and the thirst for knowledge was momentarily thrown off course last night, while doing research in the field. While road-testing other batches of John Rexer’s Ilegal Mezcal at La Esquina(for quality control), the luscious Lou was reading and making up new cocktails… a decent mojito and then some kind of cream/rum concoction, followed by blackberry liqueur( and I also refused the Kahlua/Amaretto shot)…the mezcal worked with the cream/rum thing, btw…

and another stop by the newly re-opened Cafe 2000…this feels like someone’s wet dream of “I wanna have my own sports bar.”…and a restaurant and 4 big plasma screens with obscure games playing and my own remote switch(Elvis once said that a .22 pistol makes a great remote control but you can only use it once.)…too many wait-staff, a kitchen that is wasted on breakfast, lunch and dinner for non-existent clients. When will people learn that a full service kitchen is a waste of time, money and food in a sports bar? The money is in the liquor(it doesn’t spoil, you don’t have to worry about prepping it nor do you have to wash dishes)…hey…not my problem, just making observations….get yourself some micro-waveable pizzas or work out a deal with a pizza joint around the corner…McD’s makes deliveries…go with your clientele’s tastes(or lack thereof)…

Butt-Man was kind of on patrol last night, making rounds to see who’s been naughty and who’s been nice(can you still smoke here?)…not an exhaustive survey but La Esquina and Da Vinci are thumbing their noses at the Tobacco Police…if you’re not wearing a badge, Claudia will buzz you in(I wish)
