More on Lozano: The Calderonista Aesthetic

This photo of Javier Lozano accompanies some recent El Universal articles on the guy. I've seen others where he looks normal, but here he looks like a Bond villain. Is that a cat in his left hand? Is he thinking about which subordinate to liquidate? My educated guess: yes and yes.

Also, how many Calderón loyalists have wire-rimmed or rimless glasses, wear their hair combed straight back, and basically look like clones from the same geeky technocrat DNA?* There's Lozano, Nava, Germán Martínez, the president himself--I'm halfway surprised that they didn't make Josefina Vázquez adopt the same style.

*I wrote this from behind a pair of wire-rimmed glasses, so I feel entitled to make fun.
