Happy Cinco de Mayo

Most Americans are watching and betting on the Kentucky Derby today. Street Sense won - 9:2.

Americans don't even really know what Cinco de Mayo celebrates. Here's a quick summary and link to educate yourself.
PS we still maintain the GOP should get off the anti-immigration train - do they really want Tom Tancredo speaking for them? Si or No? Definite NO.

The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, with some limited recognition in other parts of Mexico, and especially in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independence Day, which is actually September 16.
