The Commission of the National Museum of the American Latino will determine where to have the American Latino Museum. The Museum will also be affiliated with the Smithsonian.  Cities like LA, SA, Chicago, and now Austin are throwing their hat in the ring.  Of course, most Latinos didn’t even know we had a Commission that was studying this.

Barry Zito goes tonight against Wandy in Game 2 of the season.
