I think that will be the lingering question from Felipe Calderón’s government. This report that the bicentenario/centenario ‘Tower of Light’ monument in Mexico City had nearly 400 million pesos in irregular spending suggests, perhaps, a bit of both. The whole project has been a mismanaged, over-budget boondoggle. Cue snarky joke about a fitting memorial to 200 years of misrule.
