THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: SAL BALDENEGRO ON EUGENE MCCARTHY AND BERNIE SANDERS, EDUARDO DÍAZ ON JOSÉ MONTOYA’S ART, LUPE BOTELLO ON A HARROWING EXPERIENCE, SERGIO HERNÁNDEZ ON THE BULLY, ERNEST HOGAN ON BEING IRISH AND MEXICAN, REMEMBERING THE SAN PATRICIOS AND HOW TO MAKE JALAPENO SODA BREAD!
What up Latinopians! This week our regular Tucson, Arizona blogger Sal Baldenegro compares the 1968 Eugene McCarthy Presidential campaign with what’s going on with Bernie Sanders–is the Democratic National Committee taking sides? Our DC-based blogger Eduardo Díaz reviews a new art retrospective of famed artist José Montoya, guest blogger Lupe Botello shares an unexpected harrowing experience–it seemed like a good idea at the time. And don’t miss Serg Hernández’s latest take on Donald Trump.
This week we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the Irish/Chicano connection. Check out author Ernesto “Ernie” Hogan’s reflections on what it means to be Irish AND Mexican, or as he puts it, “don’t mess with an Aztec Leprechaun!” Also check out a film clip from the documentary film on the San Patricio Battalion written and directed by Mark R. Day and don’t miss Bobbi Murray’s not so secret recipe for knock out Jalapeño Soda Bread.
Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Week on Latinopia!
