Christmas wish list


1. World peace (fat chance).

2. Libertarian U.S. president. House and Senate too (in my dreams).

3. Fruitcake from the Collin Street Bakery in Corsicana, Texas.

4. Royal Riviera pears from Harry & David. Actually, just about anything from Harry & David would be fine, like the Hearthside Gift Basket Super Grand Deluxe, just $500.

If you’re gonna wish, wish large.

However, living south of the Rio Bravo makes Wishes 3 and 4 mostly impossible.*

Harry & David ships to Macau and Bhutan, but not to Mexico. The Collin Street Bakery ignores the foreign market completely. Rank discrimination, I say.

There are many advantages to Mexican living, but it’s not perfect — not just yet.

* No. 1 is impossible due to human nature. No. 2 will be impossible until they send all us Mexicans back where we came from. Give each a fruitcake at the border.
