The Backword Is At It Again!
I feel as if I've been in some strange purgatory for the last five months. My job is great in some respects, but sometimes I can't help feeling like I've stayed in the Valley way too long. This is despite the irony that I'm writing a column on The BackWord in support of border culture. But this is always the way here. Everything is love and hate.
The bipolar mantra of the collective subconscious of all the college people in the Valley is ever so humble… “Fuck this place!” Even the ones who knew they could leave but didn't. And the ones who left and then returned, the same ones who were biding their time here planning their escape. This is their mantra, too. Why is this so? Allow me to explain. ....

Frank, TAOB is proud of you! Keep up the good work! Also take the time to visit The Backword website...they are truly awesome people representing "el otro lado de Tejas".
