Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. It is steaming with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society we want ALL to thrive in

Clean Windshield Dance

Cars in Hermosillo must have the cleanest windshields in the country!

Not only do men burst into the street in front of traffic heroically and swiftly flaunting their talents, managing to do what stop signs fail to do in Mexico - that is, actually STOP traffic! - but men, and boys really, carry a plastic bottle of soapy perpetual water and a magic sponge that never gets too dirty for the next windshield!

In 30 seconds, your windshield, side windows, and rear have smoothly and gracefully been miraculously cleared of any evidence of dust or dirt! All for one peso or maybe 2! Which is less than 10 or 20 cents.

If you don’t think that’s hard work, think again. Not only are you dancing around cars in full sun 100 degree weather, you are DANCING around fuckin’ cars that drive like maniacs in a video game!
