A week for Latino's in the news

Whew, Latinos have really got tongues wagging this week. First, there's Sonia Sotomayor up for the Supreme Court.

Then there's Padre Albert Cutie (Coo-tee-A) troubling the Catholic Church by being photographed with a woman and now changing churches.

It's nice to see Latino's making people think about serious topics rather than debating the same ole mojado issues all the time.

My Cinco de Mayo

Last year I ordered my Cinco de Mayo dress to wear to school for my Spanish students. I had wanted something similar for years, and I finally found one on ebay. This year I'm at a new school so they got the Cinco de Mayo "surprise" too.

It is so hard to be in a bad mood when wearing this dress. I think I might look for something similar to wear more often. (Or maybe not.) By the way, in the United State Cinco de Mayo is all about the beer.

Rainy day productivity

It has been a rainy weekend here in East Tennessee, but I've been super productive today. I've been busy at my KNS blog.

Mexican Cabin Fever
A Scary Precedent
Nonessential Kisses
DREAM Act letter to editor
Cinco de Mayo: It's all about the beer

The nonessential kisses post has to be one of my favorite things to come out of the swine flu.
