Mexico's Oregon envoy
[Fernando Sanchez Ugarte] takes Cabinet post Mexico's consul general in Oregon has accepted a Cabinet position under new President Felipe Calderon.
Sanchez has served as consul general in Portland since October 2004.
Fernando has provided many hours of amusement for me. The look on his face every time he sees me at a protest gives me a warm, squishy feeling inside. It's a look of "not him again..."
But even though he was on the other side of the illegal alien issue I think that he helped us out. Who can forget the time when he suggested that rape was just a "cultural clash." (profile in pictures at that link)
We all should wish him well at his new post. Email him at mailto:email@example.com and make sure you tell him I said "hi" and that I look forward to causing his replacement many headaches.
