For ustedes who will click onto this site from other locations and try to figure out what this chap is about--bienvenidos! I didn't pick the ridiculous headline that goes with the story--mine would've involved naked Jesus murals and duct tape.

Went rather well last Thursday--a live-on-tape episode of AirTalk recorded at Libreria Martinez. Was me, SanTana Councilmember Mike Garcia, SanTana Unified School District Trustee Audrey Nogi, Orange County Business Journal Editor Mike Lyster and all-around fool Lupe Moreno. Listen to the rebroadcast...um, they don't have a permanent link yet, so just go to the KPCC-FM website.
