The yelping dogs of current thought will drown the timid voices if ignoring them doesn't work.

hey! muerte is death. There is no saint whose name is 'muerte', this is sacrilegious more having to do with evil superstition. Somehow Mexican culture is trashed no matter what. Here comes the term 'TRADITION' Mexico has a beautiful history and tradition is a BIG part of its history. The eagle devouring the serpent that is at the center of the Mexican flag has a traditional story behind it. In no way connected with the trashy, drunken view of Mexican history. The past has a very honorable part of life. Death be not proud and is accepted as something we cannot avoid but most of the time not welcomed. Perhaps the thought is kicked around but that's all.
