Revisited: Sympathy for the Devil

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Sympathy for the Devil

He was vandalized by a couple unknown hombres malos the night of November 29th and was taken to the emergency room right away. Not in a million years could El Diablo not be present for the Burning of the Devil, right?
