Deadly desert borderlands; Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra in Tucson

I'm on, so check this blog for social and political perspectives from Tucson.

See me in April 15, 2005 Wall Street Journal, p.A1.

Too many Mexicans dying trying to cross the desert as a result of immoral, unethical Bush border policy that pushes them in to remote areas.

Border Patrol is tearing up the desert environment chasing these poor people to their deaths -- official count is 13 dead in the last 5 days, reality is sadly many more.

Antibalas jammed at Solar Culture last night: hot, sweaty, high powered (but not quite as much as their previous Tucson show).
