Cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz's daily comic strip, La Cucaracha, is being considered by the Washington Post to join the daily lineup. Lalo's only the third Latino ever to get a syndicated comic strip if you count Baldo, but the strip is status quo and doesn't do anything edgy so he's sort of a stretch to include.
They ran 6 strips in the Post on March 26th, which you can see online. Please call in and vote for the strip! To vote, call 202-334-9000 and enter 5620 as the code. It'll take you to a very short recording and then you vote. La Cucaracha is the third strip mentioned. You can also vote by e-mail (one vote per e-mail address) by mailing email@example.com with YES in the subject line.
Lalo's strip is political, funny, and it's got four young adults in East LA -- totally unheard of in safe, family-friendly COMICSTRIP USA. When has free speech and exposure to differing viewpoints ever been so important? Vote early, vote often.
