Glad that wasn't there for my visit. Of course deforestation has doubled under NAFTA and corporations sue per the treaty for lost profits due to environmental regulation, but you can still stroll through the Cosmovitral and see the only place where Pena Nieto will face the people.

Yo Ian,

When Luis Nishizawa died in 2014, Nieto showed up in Toluca for the funeral. It's interesting the president would show respect to a painter.

Muralism is the PRI's glorious propaganda from when the public could still believe it.

Also he prefers the pictures..

"I have read a number of books, starting with novels, that I particularly liked. I'd have a hard time recalling the titles of the books," Pena Nieto said during a question-and-answer session at the weekend book fair in the western city of Guadalajara.

Pena Nieto said that as an adolescent, he had been influenced by the Bible, and had read "parts of" it.

He then rambled, tossing out confused title names, asking for help in recalling authors and sometimes mismatching the two.

He said he liked "La Silla del Aguila, a novel whose title roughly translates as "The Presidential Chair." But he said it was written by historian Enrique Krauze, one of Mexico's most famous historians. It was actually written by Carlos Fuentes, the country's most famous novelist.

That was about as close as the former governor came to correctly identifying a book he has read in the past decade.

"The truth is that when I read books, the titles don't really sink in," he said after several minutes.

Notably little difference between the statue and the man. True of the other two but more true of el presidente.
