The Work of a Master: An open letter from an artist to a Mexican crime cartel boss

Guillermo Gomez-Peña just published this profound reflection on his personal relationship to Mexico and his national identity in relation to the increasingly bleak drug violence in the country and along the border. As a second generation Chicano I have been thinking a lot about the post-national identity that Guillermo refers to throughout his letter and how I fit into it. I highly recommend that you give it a read.
