If we're going to do this, let's do it right!

Below is an entry from the "blog" that seeks to clarify, once and for all, that Laredo is, not in Mexico, but in the state of Texas, and therefore-in the United States.

The problem is that, upon quickly perusing the article, I came across several mistakes that many Laredoans and non-Laredoans alike might readily notice. These appear in red. It would serve our city well to be a little more careful in putting together a website that seeks to present Laredo in a positive light;being a little bit more vigilant in proofreading entries before posting would be a good start.


While Laredo will always embrace its Mexican heritage, the city is equally as (superfluous) proud to be a part of the great state of Texas, firmly within the United States boundary. (Should be boundaries)
Much like Ellis Island in the east (East) and San Francisco to the west (West), Laredo is a major point of entry into the United States. It is a beacon of hope that welcomes(,) with open arms(,) all those who aspire to the great American legacy and wish to further the American way in any capacity.
While a negative hyperbolic image of Laredo tarnishes its good name(,) an outcry for a response has been welling in the city and amongst its many advocates.
