Hello all! I am new to the forum. I am a young dude from Salt Lake City Utah who enjoys all kinds of history, music, guitar playing, song writing, and sports. I am a history major here at the University of Utah. Good times. Hope to learn a bunch here thank you!

Slack, welcome aboard. If you wander over to Fort Douglass, 11A Officers Circle was my home from 1980 to 83. I have both a son and several grandchildren in Salt Lake City. The oldest starts at the U this year. Carlos Fuentes' death was noted on some forums earlier this year. The only time I ever heard him speak in person was at the Univ. of Utah, and it was quite an experience. He was a master orator in the Greek Classical sense. Never boring, always fascinating. If the U continues to draw such LA luminaries, you are in for some interesting years.

Well, Carlos Fuentes was outstanding. I read his book about the history of Hispanic peoples, called "The buried mirror" and it was the work of a genius, because only him was able to discover a common thread from the ancient Cretans and Iberians to the modern Latins on the U.S. Confused
He impressed me also with an article he wrote against Huntington, where the later excluded Latin America from the Western World... That was an insult to any Latin American. And it was like (sorry about this vulgarity) chilly pepper in the back of Fuentes, who wrote a devastating critic against Huntington, and that was it.
Fuentes was one of the most brilliant intellectuals of the late 20th century in Latin America. Rest in peace.
