    Nate: I’ve debated writing about this for some time, but since a neighbor was enjoying some fine songs by KISS, Queen, and The Cranberries this morning, I thought today’s the day. I’m not sure why, but I’m always a bit tickled when I hear English-language music here.

    If you hear music from a passing car or in a nearby business or home, it is very often traditional Mexican music or Spanish-language pop music.
