Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Okay, I had to laugh when I read this Herald story about Edel Mesa, Miami’s leading candidate for a Darwin Award. All I can say is que pendejo. I also got a kick from some of the reader comments like this one by Player:

“He was growing weed for his sick Abuela.”

Or this other one from Anonymous:

“He said I’m gonna grow some pot that’ll blow your socks off! It actually blew him out of his shoes!”

Here’s a gem from Good Ole Boy:

“Oh my, more Cuban immigrants committing more immigrant crimes in immigrant Miami. We gave you immigrants freedom, clothe you, fed you, and educated you immigrants. And how do you Cuban immigrants repay us. You immigrants peddle marijuana to our teenagers.”

And then there’s Neighbor:

“All you Cuban haters…are you telling me gringos don’t enjoy a good toke every now and then?? Give me a break you hypocrites.” --Francisco Alvarado

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
