  1. Governor enrique alfaro gave his face to the public, a bald gift almost like Marilyn Monroe's resuscitated.
    If he had not as stolen public security and public health funds and shortchanged his cartel buddies and sold the 'plasa' to all comers, civilians would not be getting killed and disappeared all over his narco-state of jalisco
