¡Ask a Mexican! Turns 10

Gustavo Arellano’s ¡Ask a Mexican! column began in OC Weekly ten years ago this week. “Now ¡Ask a Mexican! is like a freakin’ empire,” says Kevin Roderick at LA Observed, “and Gustavo’s the editor of the whole freakin’ paper.”

Arellano writes, “The Mexican is not much for retrospectives—that’s a gabacho thing.” He praises Albuquerque’s Weekly Alibi for “being the first newspaper besides my home periódico to have the huevos to run the column.”
