2010-04-24 Crawfish Festival With a Vietnamese Twist (weekly)
http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2010/04/23/crawfish-festival

        

Curious things can happen when a church with a largely Vietnamese congregation has a pastor with a penchant for Louisiana cooking.


Such is the case at Our Lady of LaVang Parish (800 S. Tucson Blvd.), where the second annual Crawfish Festival takes place this weekend. The event features traditional Vietnamese food prepared by church members and loads of bayou-style crawfish, which parish president Anton Tran admits is somewhat of an odd pairing.


“My pastor knows how to cook that stuff,” Tran said. “They may eat some kind of crawfish in Vietnam, but not like this.”


Tran was busy this morning getting the ton of crawfish he had flown in for the event ready. It will sell for about $5 a pound at the festival, which also features Vietnamese ...read more...

From today's New York Times:


During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mr. McCain did his share of contortions to win over a right-wing base that never trusted him. Now he is fighting for survival against a radio host endorsed by border vigilantes.


But this pandering is tragic for a man who was one of the architects of the humane, comprehensive approach to immigration he has now disowned — threatening a filibuster to prevent its even coming to a vote.


Mr. McCain has long said border control must be a prelude to larger reforms. But he always insisted on realistic solutions, on respecting immigrants’ humanity and giving them the chance to become legal. He never played the rancid, dangerous game of portraying Latinos as criminals, ...read more...

President Barack Obama has spoken out against the immigration bill now on Gov. Jan Brewer's desk:

President Barack Obama on Thursday criticized a pending Arizona law that would make it a state crime to be in the United States illegally and require anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant to produce identification.


Such legislation could "threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans," the president said during a naturalization ceremony for members of the United States Armed Services.
