On May 5, 1862, General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguin of Mexico took a ragtag band of soldiers and crushed the French occupying forces at the Battle of Puebla, helping Mexicans gain a sense of national unity and patriotism (all this according to Wikipedia). Today, this event is celebrated as Cinco de Mayo, marked—as one would expect for such an important historical event—by the mass consumption of margaritas and guacamole. Even former U.S. President George W. Bush, that noted party guy, issued a proclamation calling on Americans to celebrate the event with appropriate ceremonies and activities. Hey, one man’s appropriate is another man’s… well, you get the idea. And, this year, Cinco de Mayo falls on Saturday night, so if you’re out, look for The Linker at his favorite cantina, Rosa’s, where he’ll again fall in love with Felina, the Mexican girl.
