You probably didn’t notice, but we’ve spent the last several years neglecting this website in favor of other pursuits. For one thing, JD and I had a couple of kids, so you can now look forward to our upcoming web site on which we rank our children in order of attractiveness.

More importantly though, we finally achieved the American dream of building a fake Mexican town in our basement.

Is this Mexico, or is it my basement? It’s hard for me to tell, because I’ve never been to Mexico.

I know you are probably thinking, “What does this have to do with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto? Is this just an excuse for you to show off photos of your amazing, amazing basement?” Ha ha! Well, you’re on to me.

Whoops, how did this photo get here? Oh well, I guess I have to leave it in now!

But believe it or not, my basement isn’t totally irrelevant to this discussion of Enrique Peña Nieto. You might be surprised to learn that the president of Mexico technically has jurisdiction over my basement, and any other Mexico-themed place in the U.S.*

Since I live near the US-Mexican border (by which I mean the basement stairs), I take an active interest in Mexican politics. And I for one am sick and tired of Peña Nieto being ridiculed for the embarrassing gaffes he makes in interviews and at public events and every other time he is speaking out loud.

I’m no political expert**, but when you have a president as good-looking as Peña Nieto, the media should not be asking him “gotcha” questions like “What is the capital of Veracruz?”*** and “Can you name three books?” The media should just stand there quietly and respectfully while taking hundreds of photos of him, so we can admire his face from a variety of angles.

In conclusion: as my apology to you for not updating this website for four years, here are some images of Enrique Peña Nieto’s face from a variety of angles:

Note that we are still missing a good aerial shot. Someone needs to get in there with a ladder.


*This includes Chevy’s restaurants, the Mexico pavilion at Epcot, and the “ethnic” aisle in some grocery stores.

**Ha! Who am I kidding? I obviously am a political expert.

***To be fair, I also do not know the capital of Veracruz. Is it Veracruz City? Because that’s always a good guess.
