In our July 16 column, where we interviewed Mexico's conservative candidate Felipe Calderon, we told you that Calderon - who won the official count of Mexico's July 2 elections - is likely to shelve his previous criticism of Fidel Castro, and try to make nice with him, as a possible prelude to offering the Mexican foreign ministry to the opposition PRI party. Well, it's happening. Today, news agencies report that Calderon has sent a nice get-well letter to Castro. Read the wire story (in Spanish) in the comments section.

Conservador mexicano Felipe Calderon desea a Castro una pronta recuperacion
MEXICO, Ago 14 … (AFP) … El vencedor de la eleccion
presidencial mexicana de acuerdo al conteo oficial, el conservador Felipe Calderon, envio una carta al presidente cubano, Fidel Castro, en la que le desea una pronta
recuperacion, informo el lunes su oficina en un comunicado.

Calderon, del oficial Partido Accion Nacional, ''hizo llegar al presidente de la Republica de Cuba, Fidel Castro Ruz, a traves de una carta personal, sus deseos por su pronta recuperacion'', indica el comunicado.

El presidente de Mexico, Vicente Fox, aun no ha hecho ninguna declaracion sobre Fidel Castro, convaleciente de una
cirugia intestinal, con quien ha tenido una serie de roces en los ultimos seis anos.

Top 10 reasons why Calderon is the best choice for Mexico:

1. First and foremost, Calderon will make sure that Mexico continues the trend set out by Echeverria, Lopez Portillo, De la Madrid, Salinas and Fox. What trend is that? The trend of a long list of accomplishments occurred in the last 30 yrs. of PRI-PAN government.

2. Calderon will make sure that 50% of Mexicans remain with an income of less than $1 dollar a day.

3. Calderon will make sure that the exodus of millions of unemployed Mexicans continue going to the USA.

4. Calderon will make sure that the lack of gains in science and technology occurred during the Echeverria, Lopez Portillo, De La Madrid, Salinas and Fox continue.

5. Calderon will make sure that Mexico remains a 3rd world country.

6. Calderon will make sure that none of the participants of the bank frauds committed every sexenio are brought to justice.

7. Calderon will make sure that the Durazos, Hank Gonzalez and Salinas are able to steal with absolute impunity.

8. Calderon will make sure that the income and social disparities between the Mexican north and south increase.

9. Calderon will make sure that millions of young Mexicans have limited access to quality education.

10. There has been absolutely no improvement in the living conditions in Mexico for the past 30 yrs. But thank God we have Calderon to maintain the status quo.

God bless you.

During the PRI's control of the Mexican Executive Branch ,until Zedillo, Human rights in Cuba were not even talked about by the Mex Hierarchy.
That changed with Fox and Castaneda.
Now the pendulum will swing back again as that is CALDERON'S OLIVE BRANCH TO the populist PRD and to the PRI as well
Why the PRI ?
Cuba owes Mexico about a billion
they wish to get paid somehow, Can't get paid if you have adverse relations. Need to cover up who got that money also !!
Seems a shame the PAN stole the election by FOX illegally interferring in the electoral process well against Mexican electoral law statutes,

At worst had AMLO won he might be making
the same overture for philosophical reasons as opposed to being a prostitute like Calderon.
I say prostitute because the people of Mexico do not know the whole truth on the Banking sector bailout,which was orchestrated by the same groups of persons from the PRI and Banking sector that Calderon is keeping in the Finance Ministry and some of the gentlemen that financed his campaign get not to go to jail
The Mexican People have been cheated again, Porfirio should have said
Pobre Mexico
Tan lejos de DIOS Tan cerca de los EU, y con un elite tan pinche corupto

God Help them

The whole thing is ironic, given the fact that castro's little buddy, Hugo Chavez, tried to unhorse Calderon's campaign and put his AMLO stooge in at Calderon's expense. The plot failed and now he's sucking up to castro. Just lovely.

None of the two main parties in Mexico are free of PRI influence, in one way or another Roberto.

As far as Fidel and Mexico, something tells me that Mexican money is there already, and more Mexican investment is going to follow into that country.

And as Roberto points out there is the matter of that debt.

yes bolnica i know they are not free of the PRI that was the point Calderon is just a hypocrite and worse
yes bolnica the Mex $ its there already.. debt,like i said in fidel's pocket as he never paid it back
of which 1/3 was siphoned off thru
panamanian/swiss banks for the accounts of fidel, raul, and carlos salinas at Mex taxpayer expense
This has been documented and the Mex govt knows it as does the US

Read the approx 5/11/2004 story in the NYT and WSJ both on line
on the 100 million fine thaat UBS WAS levied by the US Treasury for money laundering for Cuba among others and you will start to realize the extent of the Money Trail goes way beyond anything you suspected

Unfortunately, Calderon is forced to unite the country after winning Mexico's closest election race.
I believe that if Mr. Obrador continues his Revolution attempt, his political career would be destroyed and many of Mexico's old-fashioned leftists will lose their power.
Until then, Calderon will have the necesary political support to talk to Castro directly, and ask for freedom in Cuba. Calderon will have people's support to have structural reforms passed in congress. Once we see those changes, Mexico is going to be able to negotiate a Migratory Reform with the U.S.; To sign more Free Trade Agreements with emerging economies; and a truly bilateral war against drug traffic.

I think that Colombia's Uribe is a great example for Mexico. Venezuela's Chavez is Obrador reloaded.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
