Border crossers

Lately NamUs has added a lot of cases of migrants who disappeared crossing the Mexican border. Presumably the desert ate most of them. I’ve read a few articles about the missing migrants and it always inspires all kinds of people in the comments section to make racist remarks and say why are we bothering to look for them when they weren’t even allowed to be here. Well, news flash, people: if these people disappeared on American soil, whether we wanted them there or not, it is our responsibility to find them.

Anyway, I have yet to post a lot of missing migrants on Charley but here are the few border crossers I do have:

Sandra Yaneth Aguilar-Granados

Delfina Soledad Esiquio Guzman
Jose Rafael Henriquez-Diaz
Dilver Maldonado Dearcia
Armando Rivera Noriega
Jose Francisco Fuentes Pereira
Julian R. Quinonez
Vicente Rios Quinonez
Claudia Natali Rodriguez
Tomas Rodriguez-Romero

Four guys in Tennessee

Executed Today and written about by me: four murderers in Tennessee, three black and one white.

I ripped the twenty-second clip off of Life of Brian and put it on YouTube myself, after discovering YouTube didn’t have a clip of this already. (And before you start going on about copyright, 25 seconds totally qualifies as “fair use.”) It just seemed so appropriate to the situation. Yes, I know the quality of it isn’t great. I couldn’t figure out how to make it better. It took a long time for me to figure out how to rip the clip; for the first few tries I either got sound but no picture, or picture but no sound.
