RE: Once upon a time, a hungry girl from Mexico …
I'm not sure what put me off exactly. Believe me, it wasn't racially motivated. It maybe was the discomfort of a gringa who's been yanked out of her comfort zone and forced to see the grit of some cold reality? Yet, I don't see that either.

And confused. Was she actually making $70,000 a year at one point from the peaches? Shouldn't she have been living extremely well? Or at least comfortably with a family? I thought that cost of living was lower in that area than it is here (Colorado). Now I could be wrong!
