    was President: he never became a citizen,as he loved the Mexico that is now gone (see Viva Zapata by Eisenstein for some of that wonderful past) and our country, which he served well.
    I was born in Chicago, but later lived as a boy en el D.F. and la ciudad de X, my parent's home towns; and I've lived in San Antonio almost continuously since that crisp, fall dawn when my father stopped to get us strawberry-filled Dunkin Donuts after night-driving from a peaceful international bridge, non-stop, with four children and my mother in the back seat almost asleep under a grey-white sarape that kept the morning chill away.

    The second generation citizens are here already.
