If the City of Laredo gets its way, the Texas Legislature will do away with manifiestos this upcoming session.
City Hall's "Alienation 2010 Tour" keeps chugging along. So far they've managed to worsen their relationship with: uninsured motorists, El Metro riders, the Horizon Group (El Portal), The Laredo Broncos, residents of Los Martinez in West Laredo, Webb County Commissioners Court, proponents of at-large districts and people who put out their recyclables in blue bags. Now they want to tax Mexican shoppers.
It's possible that they only ones who haven't been offended by city council are the residents of the city cemetery.
