La Cucaracha by Lalo Alcaraz for March 27, 2005
Cuco: You know, if you think about it, Barriobucks coffee and check cashing is the perfect Latino business...banks avoid low-income neighborhoods. Encouraging high-interest paycheck and cash-advance businesses to move in...and everyone drinks coffee - plus you may need to cash your whole paycheck to pay for a cup of coffee now...but something like Barriobucks exists only in a cutting-edge comic strip like ours. Eddie: Hey, these photos were sent to us by a loyal reader in Tucson, Arizona. Dear La Cucaracha, Here's some photos of the perfect Latino business = tacos and check cashing. Sincerely, Chapulina De L Epe Tuscon, Arizona. P.S. I guess your comic strip isn't so "cutting-edge" anymore.
