Well, I haven’t been all that active at the blog, so far, BUT I have been writing my, let`s say, head off for my newspaper. I share with you my first post, about the increasingly important role of the latino communityin this election and its pervasive presence in the Democratic National Convention.

I have translated the first paragraph:

The main course will be the speeches of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, on Thursday, but nevertheless the people attending the National Democratic Convention, that started this tuesday in Charlotte (NC), enjoyed an appetizer consisting of the words of Julián Castro, mayor of San Antonio, who said that the future of the United States will depend in part of the success of the latin community.
