And He's Out

That didn't take long: a day after his speech celebrating drug dealers as successful agribusiness practitioners managed to unite the PAN, PRI, and PRD for the purpose of his expulsion, Jeffrey Max Jones, surely the most famous undersecretary for agribusiness in the history of Mexico, has resigned.

As much as the speech reminds one of George Costanza's trophy-dragging campaign to get fired from the Yankees, it's hard not to feel a twinge of sorrow for the guy. It was a pretty creative speech, but one better suited for a university lecturer than a government spokesman.
