Narco Nation

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the latest installment in the Half King’s weekly reading series. It’s only fitting that the guest of honor that evening was the intrepid English-born, Mexico City-based journalist Ioan Grillo, since the bar is owned by renowned  journalist and documentarian Sebastian Junger.

Shop Honour on Cyber Monday

I’m keeping the unique spelling in deference to the European sensibilities of Mrs. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, apostate, courageous fighter for human rights the world over, and founder of the AHA Foundation.

The Real Lesson of Thanksgiving

The Real Lesson of Thanksgiving

As we gather together with loved ones-or not so loved ones-to give thanks, or express regret, perhaps it’s a good time to put things into perspective. A few days ago an acquaintance posted a cartoon to Facebook often used to lampoon those of us who are not open borders fetishists by predisposition. I’m referring, of course,...

Giving Thanks

  We at American Rattlesnake  would like to wish all of our followers a very contented and happy Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, there are many Americans who are pained by the absence of loved ones this holiday, including the family of Marizela Perez.
