Odds & Ends

Dateline: The Philippines—Although he claimed he could see the future, an eccentric Filipino judge was surprised recently when he was fired by the country’s Supreme Court. “They should not have dismissed me for what I believed,” Florentino Floro, a trial judge in the capital’s Malabon northern suburb, told reporters after filing his appeal.

[RE: Feature, “Dear Gabachos,” May 4-10]

Thank you so much for creating a healthy dialogue between “us” and “them”! After—ah, let's see—25 years here in New Mexico, it’s so refreshing to see the word “Mexican” written in print and on the front page! Ay ay ay! Being from Califas, I'm proud to know that it took a fellow UCLA Grad/Mexicano to get this out. There is so much to write about. My cousin and I have been in therapy for years, ad nauseum, over this pinche shit! 

Keep up the great work. Much success to you.
