Daniel Hernandez
Journalist, blogger, chronicler.
Interests: I'm interested in the fusion and mixing of all cultures, nations, and borders. As a storyteller my building blocks were shaped while growing up bilingual and bicultural on the U.S.-Mexico border, in multiethnic barrios. I'm excited by all forms of cultural production, by the intersections that exist between art, society, the sublime, and the streets.

Unfortunately no it is not! Site went dormant and I think someone along the line forgot to pay the hosting!
Gracias, Chris! I'm not sure about Yoshua's video. Did you check his site?
Hey! Thank you for stopping by. But just FYI, it's probably lots easier to get it in the USA, but of course, we have the Spanish version here. Abrazo, D.

Will do, Flores! I think Oceano has some distribution deals with certain bookstores or chains in the U.S., but not sure. You should go scheck it out! El nombre del libro es español es "El bajón y el delirio." Saludo, Daniel

Hey thanks for stopping by! That's an interesting question. I don't think there's a locus necessary of pochos in a particular place, we're pretty much all over, especially since people usually first settle here with relatives. Peace, Daniel
Thanks Carissa, that's a great one! I had heard about it while I was reporting recently on the Jonathan Zamora case. Richard, thanks for the comment. Wil take a look.

Nate, In foreign news bureaus we regularly cite local news outlets when we are unable due to time and resource-constraints to go personally verify a news account, especially in a breaking news situation with several moving parts at once. As with everything I write for the L.A. Times, always, everything I reported in this piece I checked with *at least* two news sources and with law enforcement authorities when any statements were made in the local areas where these incidents occurred. Forgive me, but I'm no sheep, and I never write anything with half-a-wit. Daniel
Wow, Craig. Thank you for stopping by and for the historical detail. I'd love to see an image of that. - Daniel

Replied! Sorry for the delay. - Daniel
Nick, That's a very good question. Let me think about that a bit before responding. It didn't occur to me that "youth" and "student" maybe should not be interchangeable. - Daniel
Emailed ya! Thanks for stopping by. - Daniel

Hey thanks! Oh, and let me check on readership stats. That's a good question. There are a lot of papers, though, in Mexico. Keep that in mind, not one per city (if that) in the U.S. Saludos, loveandhatela! - Daniel
