By Enrique Turegano / Al Punto I saw an ad on Univision for an SUV...nice ad. But the VO caught me off guard. It was the poem by Antonio Machado and famous song by Juan Manuel Serrat, "Caminante No Hay Camino". Great song, great poem...but I wonder how much it connects with US Hispanics....mostly US Mexicans. Do they even know it? Is it important to them?

As many of you have seen in the movie 2012 and have heard from scholars based on their interpretation of Mayan culture and the Mayan calendar, the world will end December 2012. Doomsday is upon us in 355 days on December 21, 2012.

'm still not sure why Ad Age felt compelled to give a voice to hate. I mean, how else do you explain their decision to invite a bona fide prophet of hate to their upcoming "Media Evolved" conference?  Glenn Beck may be doing something interesting in media (according to Ad Age) but he's still a racist.
