Chuck, you are absolutely right on about the need for web sites that translate, and also write in Spanish/ English for both sides of The Border. It would keep people from being so bogged down in the northern part of North America.

What is needed for starters, is just a translation of a quality article or two of interest to the Left, from Spanish to English every day. And vice versa. Because Mexico has the same problem that we do, in not getting translated and seeing key Left articles from the US.

This goes for Europe, Asia, the rest of Latin America too, of course. With enough of these local issue sites, then kids, tourists, and whoever else is wondering around the web, will have to come across political news that matters to local people. That would help build up the impression that US economic expansion into the rest of the world, isn't going on un-noticed, or without resistance. Forget ever getting news like this into US media.>
