La Cucaracha by Lalo Alcaraz for January 30, 2005
Vero: If you had a choice of any superpower, what would it be? Eddie: Invisibility. Cuco: You can already do that. Just be a Latino on network TV news... Reporter: Tonight on network news, no stories on Latinos-but if we should slip up and run one, we'll be sure to have a non-Latino pundit comment on screen for us! Vero: It seems the only time you see Latinos on network TV news...is when there's stories on immigration or crime. Cuco: Those sharp TV journalists must have uncovered that we're all criminal immigrants. Vero: Hold it! Here' s a story! Reporter: Cpl. Jacob Gomez was buried today after giving his life fighting in Iraq. His father was then deported, and defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld faxed a condolence letter xeroxed onto a Mexican restaurant menu. Cuco: Sounds like a crime to me.
