A Tip of the Sombrero to Izel Vargas

Uncanny, gifted painter, Izel Vargas (of Pocholandia infamy) takes our eyes to this recent dispatch:
"Bill... I thought i'd share this with you. A great friend at UNC, Charlotte, José L.S. Gámez (a fellow Tejano) wrote a piece about the Taco Truck Wars going on in the east-- in this case Charlotte."




This video glosses the incongruities at work as "Mexicans" and other immigrants change the face of the South.

  1. When I saw the first Taco Truck in Galveston after Hurricane Ike, I took it as a good sign we were on the mend.

    Houston has been navigating the same sort of waters.
