I changed my avatar to a Yellow 'M'
I figured I might as well start wearing some kind of identification, like the yellow star of David that Jews were required to wear in Nazi Germany.

5. It is the Yellow Puma, mascot of the University of Mexico
The Puma face forms an 'M' for Mexico.

9. No kidding
This is a long term nightmare for Republicans who are damaged in the eyes of a growing hispanic population. The wife and I were thinking about going to Sedona for our vacation but we have changed plans. We're not spending one cent in Arizona.
