“bullet” Sito Negron does a wrap-up on El Paso coverage:
In the end, the debate was both greatly inspiring and gravely disappointing.
It was inspiring because with very little notice the City Council was able to air in public so many issues that need to be debated at the highest levels, and it was disappointing because the state and federal leadership failed to uphold what ought to be their first priority, the honest search for the best policy.
They bowed to fear.
The El Paso Times wraps up as well:
We are at the point where we have to do something. Frustration in El Paso and Ju½rez has reached such levels that taboo subjects are actually being given consideration by people who would not have thought of discussing them before.
