To Patricia Quijano Dark, Cecilia Skinner, Tania Navarro, and Reinaldo Escobar: I love my hispanic friends, but *this story is NOT news*. It's just another excuse to write about minorities for no other reason than that it's the politically correct/popular thing to do in the newspaper industry.

Please don't turn this story into a hateful race and immigration discussion. Not every story needs to be breaking news. Every newspaper has opinion stories. And papers don't need to find excuses to write about minorities. This story is interesting because even though latinos are a minority in Utah, they are unique and show their gratitude in a different way on a traditional holiday. Just enjoy the new enlightenment or accept it as something you're not particularly interested.

But please, let's not turn this into a hateful race and immigration comment board. Let's all be thankful that we live in a country where almost everyone has food, clothing, shelter, opportunity, and more safety than less fortunate places in the world.

There was nothing hateful about what I said. I simply think a newspaper should still to real news, except for opinions and editorials confined to their own section.

Excellent article about family and culture.

@Brotherly Kindness (ironic): You are far too transparent.

It's Utah. How much real news goes on. I agree that DesNews should stop writing articles about BYU's conference possibilities and Jake Heaps' leadership role. Now those stories are not news. But the paper doesn't write things to be politically correct, they write things people will read and talk about. Being politically correct would be writing about Native Americans and Pilgrims.
