Alfalfa, Mrs. Alfalfa, and the Alfalfa sprouts took a road trip. He blogged about it in the Vicad and ran the blog entry in print. They lived dangerously and went to strange and exotic places. He reports, '… We cruised along the 80 mph speed limit of West Texas and arrived the first night in El Paso in fine fashion. We had a pleasant dinner at the nearby Macaroni Grill …' The Macaroni Grill!!?? That's the place to eat in El Paso, one of the best Mexican-food towns in the U.S.? You can drive five blocks in any direction and encounter a joint serving Mexican food better than anyone in Victoria has any hope of ever eating, and they ate at the Macaroni Grill? Tsk, tsk.
I feel a little bad about taking little jabs at the Vicad when the whole world has risen up to smite them. A friend forwards this blog, devoted to what appears to be a sea war on the paper.
It's amazing for a paper to elicit such venom from their readership. Pore ole Advocate.
