I apoligize for these untranslated postings. Unfortunately, I haven't
the time and I figured there might be more than a few latin americanists
who might find them interesting or useful. If folks are on any other
lists where these might be relevant I would ask that they be forwarded.
The Mexican government has a complete press blackout in Chiapas. Even
the red cross is having trouble getting in.

Thanks in advance,
