Cinco de Mayo
Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday celebrating Mexico's victory over the French forces of Napoleon III. I understand that in Mexico, the day is celebrated with parades in some places and political speeches in other places. Here in the southwest, it's generally celebrated at Mexican Restaurants promoting food and drink. It is a good day to partake of some delicious enchiladas.
