When I first took film director Oliver Stone to Latin America in 1985, he was shocked to learn that almost every country was run by right-wing military oligarchs supported by the United States, with CIA-trained death squads crushing all opposition.

To the caller you yelled at me on the phone that all I cared about were the blank Mexicans who steal jobs from him. When I tried to explain Stone's film was about South America, not Mexico, he hung up. To this caller I would like to say I am very concerned about illegal aliens who are not qualified doing jobs such as driving big rig trucks or operating dangeous machinery. I agree with some Lationo Members of Congress who say the answer is to crack down on those who hire illegals. There is a real and present danger, as I have discussed with both the California Highway Patrol and US Dept. of Transportation, of "rouge" truckers recruiting poorly paid illegals to operate lethal weapons on our highways. If we got to tough on those who profit off illegals, the immigraion would be on the way to being solved.

Stone and his BFF's Spicoli and Glover can take a flying leap and join their "Latin Savior" in the jungles of Unkie Hugo's toilet country.

To West Valley Dave: Last weekend I celebrated July 4th and the First Amendment right to free speech. So you are welcome to your views of Oliver Stone and Hugo Chavez, but I frankly think your claim that Venezuela a "toilet" country shows an ignorance since that county is one of the most beautiful in the world, has beautiful women and an excellent education system where poor students have performed in orchestras that has thrilled audiences all worldwide. I wish our local community colleges had similar student orchestras.

I've visted Venezuela and an additional 26 other countries. Venezuela is by far the filthiest place I've ever visited. Yes the women are very beautiful, however the country itself is a pathetic filthy cesspool.

To Derek: I've been around the world many times and saw what you call "flith," from Calcutta to parts of the United States. But even in those places I also saw beauty, which is in the eye of the beholder.

An perfect example of our future leaders and their common practices. You can take the Latin out of the country but you can’t take the country out of the Latin. Called schooled and origin profiling.
