Will assume you know the back story but,for those who DON'T,our OFFICIAL name since independence has been the United States of Mexico.Our founding fathers thought it'd be a good idea to emulate our border-sharers to the north to encourage us on a path toward a unified,democratic republic.Sadly,this cosmetic copycat job did little to stem rampant corruption for almost two centuries...nor have we been terribly 'united'.In fact,many neutral observers feel that we are the WORST in Latin America in re factionalism

Virtually NO ONE uses the official name,though;you'll hear it when a politician gets sworn in,and you'll see it on government paperwork and in legislation....but you'll NEVER hear any regular people use it...we merely say 'Mexico',of course.As I'm not a mind reader,I'm not gonna judge whether Calderon simply wants to end his presidency on a sincere,patriotic note...or if he's just seeking to get his name in the historical annals by doing something very distinct.The initial naming agenda worked awfully but,if this next symbolic move can somehow persuade us to NOT copy the value system--or utter lack thereof--in the U.S.,then I'm all in favor of it

That's a subjective analysis,but you're a role model,whom AYE should probably follow better,in that you manage to be a pleasant conversationalist without being wordy.

On another note,Paul and I discussed opening a 2012 Polar Olympics thread,but we both agreed that too many posters wouldn't appreciate the topic material

The Polar Olympics ain't what it was. Around 1973 was sorta the peak.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

The other problem is that all of the warm-weather nations sort of feel excluded so the international buildup isn't nearly as broad as there was with the London Games.It's very hard to sell Walrus Sumo Wrestling in Latin America.....except to folks who are on LSD or similar 'self-meds'

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

I saw Wreck it Ralph a couple of weeks ago and thought it was pretty cool.

I thought Skyfall was very good if a bit overhyped. There seemed to be something lacking or maybe it just was me being tired when I saw it. I'm thinking about seeing it at some point.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Okay,art lovers(especially those who love paintings),I understand that there's some subjectivity in rating the skill level of an artist,but can anyone offer informed,seasoned analysis about Vera Dushevina's collection of paintings?I've always felt that Vera herself was a superb work of art by Mr.and Mrs.Dushevina who put their DNA together in a wondrous way when they brought forth Vera,so perhaps that disqualifies me from giving an objective viewpoint

Seriously,though,if you think she sucks as an artist then don't be afraid to speak candidly;that won't dissuade me from enjoying the artistically-formed Vera at all

As you can see,it's right there within the photo gallery on the WTA webpage,but I figured that you deserved the courtesy of a direct link since you showed interest.If you'd like a full sampling,you may check out the 2nd set of paintings as well.
