Re: Pesos for pizza?

Robyn, how very ignorant and narrow minded of you to assume that one pizza chain accepting pesos is going to somehow increase the flow of illegal immigrants into the US.
Since there is an apparent overgrowth of the "ignorami" species in the Southwest, perhaps Pizza Patron would do better to serve their 60% Hispanic clientele by just accepting the pesos and allowing the information to filter down by word of mouth.
According the the article Brennie posted, other local operations accept Mexican Pesos too and haven't gotten death threats. Maybe the key is not to put it out in the open where the media can feed it to the ignorami and cause them to write idiotic letters like this one.
Kind of operating on the old premise, "What you don't know can't hurt you."
