|"minister" Loyo in Chucho's kitchen!!!!!!!|
Today Chucho cannot remember all the broken promises but he certainly can remember all that he had to do for himself, to transform swamps in rich grasslands. Or maybe he remembers them too well and knows full well that for all of his recent media exposure he is on his own, that all will immolate him gladly no matter what side they stand. So, in all simplicity he received the minister and the vice president and told them that no problem, they can have the land tomorrow as long as they pay him what is on top of the land. They agreed, for the time being, to save face, Loyo appearing less Komissar-like today, aware that he lost the first media battle out of his own stupidity and arrogance, a lethal combination when you deal with old land cronies who have seen it all.
Imagine that, the minister and the vice-president had to go to Chucho's own little Canossa!
And yet he is certainly not going to let the opposition benefit from it and I agree with him: tonight they could find nothing else but to call for a nation wide "caserolazo", a nation wide pot banging at 8 PM, which was of course a failure. At least here in San Felipe.
Chucho Hernandez Melean knows his fellows citizens only too well, and they have been leeching off him for too long. He is cutting his losses, pissing all sides at the same time. I am impressed.
