Gustave Doré, Don Quixote: The Ingenious Gentleman of La Mancha [H. Pisan engravings]; Cassell & Co. (First edition), London, ca. 1893.

These are also in my copy of the book, printed in Barcelona 1969. It’s not that old but it has that nice “old book” smell to it.

It’s impossible to read without having a tab open to la Real Academia Española (unless you’re a Old World Spanish language badass, I guess).

Milking cows is a dirty, monotonous job, and as we found out in our latest episode of Immigrant America, it’s not a job many unemployed Americans are willing to do. But for some reason the government doesn’t give dairy farms a way to recruit foreign workers legally, so most feel forced to hire [undocumented] immigrants. This makes the farms and their workers easy targets for immigration authorities looking to fill deportation quotas.

We went to upstate New York to try to understand the cat and mouse game going on between dairy farms and immigration authorities. We found a lot of wasted taxpayer money, racial profiling, and a broken system that unnecessarily treats family farmers and hardworking immigrants like criminals.

Vice News’ Immigrant America series is worth checking out.

I remember when I was in grade school, in my social studies textbook when we spoke about latin america, haiti was like the 2nd country to come up. Haiti’s revolution was important, believe or not. We paved the way for a lot of other countries to see that freedom was a possibility.
