"Peña Nieto, Time suggests, is the only hope for salvation for the tens of millions of Mexicans living in poverty in Mexico, and maybe even for the millions of Mexicans who desperately abandoned their country for a better life in the U.S. because they couldn’t get a job or couldn’t afford school here, or because some drug cartel killed everyone in their family. Wanting to make sure it was all true, I wrote to Time and asked for a response to the nasty payola rumors that have circulated about their relationship to Mexico’s presidency. All I got was this canned reply:
"TIME does not accept payment in exchange for editorial coverage under any circumstances. Rates listed on TIME’s public media kit refer to the cost of advertising with TIME and have nothing to do with editorial content."
6 dried guajillo chiles, stemmed, seeded and soaked
2 teaspoons crumbled dried marjoram
2 teaspoons crumbled dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 small white onion, chopped, divided
1/2 cup sweetened pineapple juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 pounds extra-lean ground pork
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds
1/2 cup mayonnaise
8 sesame seed hamburger buns
1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
Drain the soaked chiles and put them in a blender with the marjoram, oregano, garlic, 1/4 of the chopped onion and the pineapple juice and puree until smooth. Add the salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
Put the pork in large bowl and pour the marinade on top. Using a fork, mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
Divide the pork mixture into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 1/2-inch thick patty.
Oil the grill pan. Working in batches, grill the burgers until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer the burgers to a plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Let rest for about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, brush the grill pan with oil and grill the pineapple slices until golden brown, 2 minutes per side.
Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise on the cut sides of each bun and warm on the grill pan about 2 minutes, cut-side down.
Place a burgers onto the bottom half of the bun. Top with a slice of grilled pineapple, some cilantro and the remaining chopped onion. Cover with the bun tops and serve.

The bill was decided in the presence of several immigrant students and their families who succeeded in higher education.
Immigrant students and their families were acknowledged by Speaker Frank Chopp as House discusses Dream Act.
Rep. Zack Hudgins, D-Tukwila, said that the bill is a chance for all students who have worked hard in Washington state high schools to attend colleges and contribute in a meaningful way to the United States.
“This is the opportunity to compete,” he said. “This isn’t a giveaway — an opportunity to compete.”
Rep. Sharon Tomiko Santos, D-Seattle, said that the community loses out when students who strive can’t get financial aid.
“Without enactment of this proposal, many of the best and brightest among us are in fact excluded from contributing all that they are able to their communities, to our country,” she said.
However, Rep. Larry Haler, R-Richland, said that making more students eligible for state need grants increases the difficulty for all students to obtain financial aid. Last year, 32,000 eligible students did not receive a state need grant because of limited funding.
“That’s holding down a hope, a dream,” he said. He suggested taking a look at other states’ proposals. “The statistics unfortunately trump the dream at this time.”
Speaking in support of the bill, Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, said the Dream Act is an opportunity to fix the laws for children stuck in a “broken federal system.”
“There are countless stories of people who want to the do the right thing” and become citizens, she said. “This bill gives us the opportunity to create a law that acknowledges children who were not decision makers in their location of residence.”
