THE CULINARY PLEASURES OF ORANGE COUNTY, CANTO I

I once took the son of a peer to Tortas Ahogadas in beautiful downtown SanTana. The guy thought he could finish the torta ahogada, minimally decorated with onions and salsa, with just a couple of bites. When I brought him back to Weekly world headquarters, the poor gabacho's face was flushed. He couldn't talk. His shirt was damp. To this day--like today--whenever I bring in a torta ahogada to work, I tell my peer "Look! The food that nearly killed your son!" My peer doesn't smile.

Appeared on Al Rantel's show last night--another hoot. He tried to corner me on my college MEChA membership, a topic I discussed many moons ago. Read it.

I've been meaning to post this for a while, and finally, here it is:

Mesa, AZ police want monkey to join SWAT Team

After moon-landing conspiracy stories, articles about animals out of their environment are my favorite. Elephants invading a village. Drunken boars attacking cars. Monkeys taking over temples. And now the Mesa PD wants a simian on its force.

I know someone from Mesa. She and her mom agree a monkey would be an improvement over the clows currently patrolling Orange County in the Desert.

    Eek. Al Rantel is the same guy who the UCLA Bruin Republicans went to garner support against MEChA de UCLA. They raised thousands of dollars in their effort. So twisted. (By the way, I've read stuff you've written on el Cargadero and for Latino LA. My mom's family is from the same pueblito.)

    Como se apellide tu mami? Saldivar? Viramontes? Garcia? Miranda? And let me guess--you have relatives in Anaheim? Or Fremont? Or Portersville? God bless El Cargadero.

    Rantel asked me point-blank why I belonged to a "racist" organization. When I told him this "racist" organization had the full support of the conservative administration of Chapman University (my alma mater for my B.A.), he shut up pretty quick.

    Mi mamá se apellide Ureño Saldivar. Tengo parientes en Anaheim y Santa Ana.

    Great response to Rantel.

    Again--God bless El Cargadero. Thanks for the comments--hope you visit here again soon!

    Yes, and Hitler had full support of the german people. Doesn't make it right.

    Are you still denying that El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan and El Plan de Sta. Barbara are real documents on file with Chapman U. administration? Have you ever read or recited those things?

     
  • At 7:02 PM, Anonymous Gustavo said…

    Planes on file with the Chapman U. administration: when did I ever deny this? Tell you the truth, I don't know or particularly care.
    Read them: yes.
    Recited them: why would I ever?

    Petty, the racial politics of MEChA are outdated, but bringing in impoverished kids never will be to me. I didn't see any other student organizations doing this at Chapman while I was there. And, thus, I joined.

    If it makes you feel any better, Petty, other MEChA clubs in Southern California didn't recognize us at the time--said we weren't "radical" enough. Dunno about its present status.

     
  • At 2:23 AM, Blogger petit bourgeois said…

    Okay, so you belong to an organization whose documents "don't mean anything." If that is the case, where were you to restate the mission in all of your collegiate political activism or otherwise refute the documents which state the mission? You where nowhere to be found, because *wink wink* it's really all about brown supremacy.

    Bullshit only goes so far, Gustavo. Unless you renounce your racist past (guilt by association, you do it with the Minutemen all the time), you are guilty. Wht is the name of the organization? The Student Movement for the Liberation of Aztlan. Why would you belong to an organization whose purpose is so explicit, direct, and unamenable to contrary interpretation? Because you really believe in La Raza, paisano.

    The sad thing is, you feel no shame, nor do you realize the legitimacy of those documents. They are on file with the college administration for a purpose: the liberation of Aztlan. For someone who supposedly propogates the truth, you are woefully deficient.

    Maybe I should get a job with the Weekly spewing half-truths. You seem to have done pretty well as a journalist whose only concern is protecting your "race."

    Ask Rantel if he was content with my repudiation of various Aztlanista conspiracies--he sure seemed like it. As for the Minuteman comment...read my articles, again. Yep, that's one article. So what's with the multiple article insinuation in your comment? And ask Gilchrist if he liked my article on the Minutemen--had to be a reason why he sent me an e-mail after its publication commending the story.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Feel free to surf to my site ... how many sky 3d channels are there

    Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!
