Son las felinas de la casa, es decir, sus dueñas. Tres gatas que, sin ser hijas, ni parientes, ni siquiera amigas, determinan nuestra rutina diaria. Tres gatas a quienes pertenezco: esta es su historia.
Conocí más de la cultura mexicana: la Virgen de Guadalupe, los chiles rellenos, los tacos y la sopa de tortilla. Desde entonces esos son mis platos favoritos, más que una parrillada argentina con chinchulines.
Cuando el lector padece la agonía, la ansiedad, el erotismo, la pasión y el gusto, es porque —nosotros, los autores— recibimos una gran compensación por el esfuerzo que hicimos en crear esa historia
Staying with grandma in the evenings she was always making chile rellenos or albondigas or chilaquiles (which remarkably has no chile) or something to that effect.
If America is a melting pot then Mexico is a thick soup. I like to think of it as a nice fondue set filled with nacho cheese.
Using actual urban police to teach Marines so that they can train Afghan Police is an excellent and somewhat obvious idea. After-all, there is only so much a soldier in his early 20s can reasonably be expected know about reaching out to a community, especially one in a foreign nation.
Unfortunately, my personal dream for historical reparation did not materialize. Still, the Netherlands continues to be my moral hero, and as a consolation prize (considering that the horrors of the Dirty War cannot, and should not ever be forgotten) General Videla and many of the military mafia that tortured and killed are in jail after being convicted for crimes against humanity.
Half of Southern California is Hispanic. How come more and more radio talk shows with antiimmigrant, xenophobic, ignorant messages are swarming?
Randy Jurado Ertll, author of “Hope in Times of Darkness: A Salvadoran American Experience” will be discussing the content of his book and the importance of promoting literature among the Salvadoran American and Latino youth.
Some spokespersons hardly ever deal with reporters and when they do, they take a whole day to respond if not multiple days. Once, when one of them finally called me back, I told him I was going to throw a party.
Those who defend Sánchez believe the legal campaign against him has broad social and political ramifications, and threatens to de-legitimize the social justice approach to the problem of gangs. That perception is widespread.
I feel sad to see our legislators wasting precious time fighting against the confirmation of a capable Latino leader who is willing to break ranks, an uncommon and much needed trait in the State Capitol.
My favorite place was George Washington’s house in Mount Vernon, Virginia. The house itself isn’t too big, but every room has its own fire place. I imagine that was the only way to survive the severe winter.
I would much rather see a bunch of guys hanging around in suits, even if they are ill-fitting suits, than pants that could house several animals, and prints in which a clown would feel silly.
This isn’t the typical Spanglish where one might say carro instead of coche, or always answer with “que” when “mande usted” would be more appropriate. No, this is more like saying “watcha,” or “trucha”.
