Several people were out by McPherson today showing their disagreement with the legality of abortion. I guesstimate there were about 60 to 75 people holding up signs that read "Abortion Kills Children". They ranged from all ages and were standing at this particular location for about an hour. IMO, its good to see that some people still stand up for what they believe. You're free to form your own opinion.

I am all about choice - my personal choice has been no children. Why judge what another woman decides?

Shouldn't those little kids holding up signs be in school?? Their choice should be education.

I wonder how much more fanatical these people would be if we actually had an abortion clinic here.

I thought we did have an abortion clinic in town, over by the Denny's on Sanbernardo. I thought the doctor came in from SA like twice a month or something to do the abortion procedure. At least that was the case in the early 00's. Not sure now.

I kinda like seeing Laredoans having some sort of rally, even though I might not necessarily agree with their stance on the issue, still, indifference can be devastating.

It may not be indifference on Laredoan's stance on the issue . Many choose not to offend anyone. As you stated QF you choose not to bear any children that is great.It is very difficult to raise children but the natural euphoric effect that it has given me , I do not regret. I can not ever feel the pain of child birth a woman has to bear but have seen it twice to the exact second both of mine were born. I disagree on it but agree if the fetus will cause death to the woman. I thank my mother for not aborting me for I have had missed the present joy of my three grandchildren. Just remember we were all fetuses at one point. It is said that Einstein's mother decided not to abort her pregnancy . I do not publicly rally for or against any issue rather use the power of a vote which at times does not make any difference. Back to the issue at hand , remember we were all fetuses at one time !

Play-More (and other Urban Legends)

I have a friend who swears on his 1988 Fleer baseball card set, that way back, sometime in the mid 80s, there existed something called the Play-more. According to his vivid imagination, the Playmore was a cross between Putt-Putt golf and Disney's Epcott Center. Every time he starts to rant about how good things were in the 80s in Laredo (minus the unpaved streets), his eyes light up and a goofy smile fills his face (a goofier smile than usual).

Go carts, arcades, a skating rink, a movie theater, according to my buddy, this place was Laredo's version of Astroworld. However, apparently, you have to be over 33 to remember this lost haven of yesteryear. I only arrived in 1992 to Laredo, years after this place apparently vanished. So if anyone out there remembers this place, drop by and leave some comments. Pictures of this lost city would be great appreciated. I think its just a crazy sugar induced illusion that my buddy concocted in between his imaginary friends.

Local Beauty Queen Arrest

The Laredo Morning Times seems to want a little web traffic on their ol' web page.  At least that's what I think when the arrest of a local "beauty queen" made it to the front page.  Oh, it was not on page 4-5, where the local arrests are usually noted, but on the top right hand corner.

A few months ago the local organ of publicity started publishing weekly mugshots on their webpage.  Generally speaking their more attractive women usually garner the most "web hits."  So, once Ms. Prieto-Falcon's mugshot (seen above) makes it to the album, I expect a new record.

Just saying.

My Experience with Emilio (by Cindy)

My Experience with Emilio by Cindy (guest contributor)

The year was 1994.  I can clearly remember waiting anxiously to go with my parents to the Casa Blanca baile.  The main attraction…Stephanie Lynn, Xelencia, and none other than Emilio Navaira.  I was in love with these Tejano bands.  I knew all of the lyrics to all of their songs.  I didn’t care if I was going with my parents for I was a teeny bopper, of sorts. Instead of crushing over Jordan Knight (which is a whole other article) I was in love with Emilio!  All I could think of was….”Como Le Hare” to get a picture with him and his chubby counterpart, Raulito!
I remember always nagging my parents to go see these bands, especially Selena and La Mafia.  I would plead…”but mom…what if something tragic happens and they die?!  We have to go see them today!”  And of course my mom would try to explain to me logically that nothing was going to happen and that we would go see them, “Next time, mijita.”  Well, sadly, these tragic things do ha…
