This isn't some lame-ass way to advance something in one our sister papers, I swear. For those of you who haven't seen it in the news lately, the alternative paper OC Weekly
publishes one of the hottest and most un-PC columns around—Ask a Mexican
. Writer Gustavo Arellano recently appeared on the Today Show
and has been getting national attention from print media too. If I were a daily newspaper editor, I'd hire a consultant to commission a marketing firm to do focus groups to tell me what the perfect equivalent column in Nashville would be. But, hombres, I'm not. Ideas? Bernie Sheahan writing "Ask a Catholic Girl"? Or dare I wonder whether "Ask a Mexican" would actually be more appropriate?
