Originally posted Oct. 20: We at the Weekly have very little love for the Orange County Register, not just because they're the major daily in town but for many petty battles waged upon us over the years. But I have nothing but love for editors Ron Gonzales and Theresa Cisneros, who man the paper's OC Latino link blog. They offer a revolutionary concept for the Reg's retrograde readers: coverage of Latinos in la naranja that isn't negative! That doesn't fall back on tired stereotypes of Loretta and Stabba Ana! That--can you believe it?--actually celebrates the good in the county!

I'm down to help them grow in popularity, and that's why I'm hosting the two as part of my "Gustavo's Awesome Lecture Series!" (held in conjunction with the Cal State Fullerton Department of Chicana and Chicano studies, where I'm a junior, junior lecturer) next Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Fullerton Public Library.

I'll talk to Ron and Theresa about their careers at the paper, the role they envision OC Latino link to play in Orange County, and--of course--the many loser readers they have to deal with on a daily basis. More importantly, though, I want them to interact with their public and get more story ideas from them. Help the competition? When we're good Mexis in OC, we have to.

The lecture will happen next Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Fullerton Public Library, 353 W. Commonwealth Ave., Fullerton, and it's FREE. See you there!

It would be a lot more interesting if you could add Jennifer Renee Vanveldhuizen to the panel.

The radical invents the views.  When he has worn them out, the conservative adopts them.

"Mitchie: It's actually against depart ental policy to give extra credit for just attending an even"

I notice the 'just' in there. Does that mean attending and 'writing up' gets credit in some MEChA studies courses? Actually, the bigger mystery is why a broke state continues to fund such ethnically/racially motivated departments.

Jeff: The minimum we get is about 30; the largest we've had is 300. Average I'd say is around 50-75.Mitchie: It's actually against depart@3764847ab332aa776f940cce2270a2df:disqus ental policy to give extra credit for just attending an event, but gracias again for showing the world how stupid you are!

Who knows, but I'll get it is boosted by all the MEChistA's who get credit in their "Chican@ studies' courses for attending. I've got to give it to GA, he is in the tradition of fine American hucksters throughout the ages.
