Some Emails about my once-popular blog
Oh, hey there! You resurfaced. Wow, someone said you were dead!Profesionalmente, Carlos E. Galindo
Hello, Nezua, we met years ago, I’m sure you don’t remember. i’m a close friend of your dad’s and we’re putting up a poem of his on the 1992 riots in the los angeles review of books. i was wondering if i could use a detail from your riot police photo as an illustration for it. we would credit you at the top of the piece with a link to your site. Thanks for considering, best, Tom
Dear Mr. Herrera, We admire your talent, wish you success in your creativity, we would also like you to consider few offers of cultural and education centre Museum of Fairytales which we are planning to establish in Kyiv, Ukraine. The Museum of Fairytales will exhibit paintings, music and books dedicated to the heroes of fairy tales and romantic stories, fantasy novels, historical and science fiction for children and young adults. Here are our cooperation proposals: We propose you to become a philanthropist of the Museum of Fairytales. We propose you to become a co-founder of the Museum of Fairytales. Chairman of the Board of the ICA Oleksandr Danylchuk
I had been more or less addicted to The Unapologetic Mexican many years ago (2008-9 or so) when my daughter’s father was deported. I remember the relief I felt when I read your writings, and the happiness I felt at knowing that there were people out there fighting to change this broken immigration system.
Recently I had the (dis)pleasure of wading through the system myself and the frustration I encountered, paired with the fact that I ended up moving to the worst place in this country for people who think like I do (an AZ border town), made me think of you and your site. I went there today and was sad to see that it was no longer active. I just want to say that I hope you are still circulating those writings somewhere and adding to them—still trying to hold people’s eyes open to reality instead of allowing them to live contentedly in their xenophobic little bubbles—still doing what you do.
Thanks for being a light in the darkness,
Co-Founder of the Museum of Fairytales.
Don’t you forget it.
