A gflngo in Mexico By Allen Wall In downtown Terreon there are two important buildings that are close to each other, the City Hall and the Federal Building. The City Hall is the seat of the Torreon city government and the Fed- eral Building is comparable to the former Murrah Building in Okla- homa City. The Federal Building houses various government offices: the mil post office, the office that deals with foreigners where I have to renew my work permit annually, a mining office, an office that grants passports to Mexicans, and others. I also have my mailbox in this building where I receive my mail. Because of the importance of these buildings, they attract many people who want to attract attention. For example, there is the "12 o'clock Loco," a crazy man who passes the Federal Building each day at noon, screamingand gesturing toward the building; The "12 o'clock Loco" is harmless, so people either ignore him or look on with amusement. Then there are the organized protesters, who from time to time gather in front of one of these two buildings to protest some dire injustice that the government should remedy in a manner that suits their way of thinking. Once the bus drivers were on strike and parked their busses in front of the City Hall for several days. And every once in awhile there's a hunger strike in which a left- wing political party will sit in front of the door of one of these build- ings for several days without eating. Of course they're striking in support of some particular cause. But I've noticed something curi- ous--usually the hunger strikers are overweight to begin with. That could mean one of two things. Maybe they're expecting a long hun- ger strike so they start out with obese hunger strikers. Or maybe the overweight hunger strikers were secretly planted by the gov- ernment, to subtly suggest that, hey, the folks here aren't that de- prived. After all, we still have overweight people.
