Take a look at a map of Mexico.
Trace with your finger a live from the American border on down to Mexico City. Basically a lot of desert ruled by banditos and the drug cartels. Whole
bunches of rattlesnakes and scorpions and Mexican people as dirt poor and nomadic as the aborigines of the Sahara Desert.
They've got nothing else to do with their hardscrabble lives but fantasize the return of Pancho Villa riding a white stallion tossing bags of
coc aine to the peasants to swallow in balloons, then smuggle themselves as mules across the Rio Grande.
The reality is that is all these people have in their lives. Make a few buck as coke mules crapping out balloons full of coc aine once they get
across the border. Give them a little uplifting, at least give them a little revolutionary art to invigorate their lives for a few moments.
This is the story of an overpopulated planet with way too many primitives. Anywhere you go in the world there are large swaths of terrain with nothing
but dirt. As the legendary comic Sam Kinison once said, "Don't send these people food. Send them U Hauls. Tell them to move out of the desert. You
can't grow food in the desert."
Cripes. These people don't even have Directv. So they have a few billboard art works that the motorists of Austin can see at sixty miles per hour.
Don't worry. The peons out there in the desert between the border and Mexico City haven't seen the billboards. Probably never will.
Now, the whack job murderous drug dealing gang bangers of MS 13 have got Directv in their Cadillac SUVs. They're probably getting a hoot out of art
appreciation week in Austin. WTF?
