Glamour, excitement, and an excuse to stop being lazy.
There probably isn't a person among the readership that hasn't wondered
about something from Carlos' group's books. For instance, is there really
a circle of stones at the base of a mountain near Simi Valley? How about
those Arizona lava peaks, are they really worth sketching? Is the turtle
soup in Guaymas really all that tasty?
Now's your chance to find out. You can do the research, travel to the scene,
taste the soup, take the photos, and report back to us. For all of your
efforts, you won't receive a penny and we won't print your name alongside
the article. If the Mexican police plant a joint on you, you'll have to
bail yourself out of jail. If you get hurt, you'll have to get your mom
to visit you in the hospital. We'll disavow all knowledge of your actions.
In other words, you're on your own! The only reward you will receive is
finding the answer to something you have always wondered about, and maybe
a little stalking practice.
Future issues of the newsletter are in need articles, both serious and fun.
We can't guarantee we'll publish the material, but it's more than likely.
We look forward to your efforts! Here are some suggestions:
The church of the death defier. The lava mountains of the Gran Desierto.
Carlos' coffee shop in Tuscon. The emissaries of death. The airline ticket
office in Mexico city. The old coin stand in Lagunilla market. Don Juan's
favorite bench (Little Rock, how about it?).
