Comments: The Pentagon Archipelago

Good God, I have just found out that the people over at "Hispanic", a slick magazine type publication of something called "Hispanic Publishing Associates, LLC" headquartered in Miami, has named Abu Gonzales "Hispanic American of the Year," complete with a cover picture of the awardee looking rather smug.

As a kid and as a young adult, I was rather frequently invited to go back to Mexico. I would reply, with smart assed humor, that I was already here.

I think the Associates are a bunch of right wing Cubans. I have asked them for an apology. They have not replied.

I will next ask them to return to the Island, and failing that, will threaten them with legions of lawyers, CPAs and enraged Mexican-Americans, a la Ignatius of New Orleans fame.

Any of you fair skinned people who are so moved are invited to join the punitive expedition.
