Another Bronx Puerto Rican done good..

And it's not me. Ah well. Still it is a pride filling day for Sonia Sotomayor and all her family. And as a Puerto Rican, of course, I am familia too. No doubt she'll be grilled. Almost no doubt, however, that she'll be confirmed. The neighborhood she grew up in was quite rough back when the Bronx was the Wild East. It's still not that nice a place. Still, she gives hope, no? It's hard, but it can be done. You can move up, move out, make a difference, control your destiny. Good for her. Good for me.

Tomorrow, if I'm lucky, a little news about that whole writing career thing...
