Laredo Tejas mulls suspending blog
Man, I don't get to post much lately. I, as have KeyRose, BTB and other bloggers, am considering suspending this humble blog. At one time, believe it or not, LaredoTejas was coined "Laredo's Most Prolific Blog" by fellow Gateway city blogger Bordertown Blues. Nowadays, the posts are pretty rare. I haven't really tried to analyze it too much, it's just been that way recently.
With that being said, I would, at least, like to relate some Classic Raul Salinas. Last night, at TAMIU, I attended the premier US screening of Milagro. Naturally, the Mayor was given a chance to speak. He stuck to the correct theme for the evening (the screening) for a minute or two and then: Classic Raulito.
He started raising his voice and yelling about how "no matter how many bars you have on your shoulders, you're not going to insult the greatest congressman Laredo, Texas USA has ever had". Although I used quotes, I'm am paraphrasing but that was the essence of his rant. Apparently, he was talking about Henry Cuellar and his recent scuffle with a couple of high-ranking Generals. Salinas didn't stop to consider that probably very few people were even aware of this.
He continued off-topic for another few minutes before finally returning to the subject at hand. Once again, our beloved mayor had managed to hijack another local event.
