And Where Were You?
By Marc Campos
As a Dem, you gotta love the slugfest between Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison. Body slams, eye gouging, kicks to the groin area, and Hutchison hasn't even announced that she's running against the Guv. Both went super negative by injecting Hillary Clinton. Commentary is waiting to see if the Guv's folks sink to an all time low, pull out the brass knuckles, and throw in the baby shower caper. Senator Clinton co-hosted a baby shower for Hutchison a few years ago. Guv to right wingers: Kay accepts baby gifts from Hillary, get a rope! Keep it coming, entertain us, and please don't focus on the issues.
Ten years ago today, Selena was murdered. Many Latinos remember what they were doing when they heard the news. Commentary - before Commentary - was watching CNN when the news broke. I remember the Corpus Christi motel parking lot scene. I remember the nonstop Selena music being played on KQQK. I remember that the nation was mourning the death of a Latina - I can't remember that ever happening before. I remember the news interviews of countless grieving Latinos/Latinas.
It is not a question of what Selena could have been, rather what she would have been.
