Eduardo Arcos informs his readers that López Obrador, who lost the presidential election to Felipe Calderón will give el grito [a ceremonious scream on independence eve] in Mexico City's zócalo (ES) [1]. The annual ceremony, to take place the night of September 15, has always been led by the president. According to Arcos, President Vicente Fox is also planning on giving el grito. Ana Maria Salazar has her own explanation of “The Battle of the Gritos [2]” in English. Meanwhile, Michelle Dion explains her disappointment with how the election unfolded [3].
