Que’ hubo Latinpoians! Your Tia Tenopia bringing you another week of Latinopia. This week we visit San Juan, Puerto Rico for a festival of street corner circus acts, blogger Jose Umpierre also brings us a review of bilingual children’s books published by Campanita Press in New YoRK. Distinguished critic and scholar Tomas Ybarra Frausto explains rasquachismo (if you don’t know you should!) and Herman Sillas weighs in on the current political scene and how money makes a difference. Our regular cartoon blogger, the inimitable Sergio Hernández, has discovered a secret weapon that ISIS is using to undermine the United States! Check it all out on Latinopia this week!
