One part of the adoption process needs to be educating people- on the specific animal they want to adopt, on what kind of medical care will be needed, on keeping the dog safe, on the importance of basic obedience training, and the list goes on.

While dining at Burger King on Bird Road in Miami, Rey Rey bit into his Big King hamburger. Half way through his meal, he found a surprise. Not like the surprise in the bottom of the Cracker Jacks box or in a kids meal either; this surprise was something, well, stickier!

Paz Zarate

Some years ago, while living in Washington D.C., I realized that being Chilean was, among the Latino community, synonymous with being Don Francisco's compatriot (and no longer one of Pinochet's).

After suffering through too many inauthentic portrayals of both Latinas and the Magic City on screen, I decided to do something about it. Because I'll be DAMNED if another feisty Cuban girl in the 305 is growing up resenting her heritage, too.
