Latina Lista wishes longtime reader the best on eve of deployment to Iraq

LatinaLista — While blogs exist because of the writers who conceive them, they also thrive on the interaction among readers sparked by blog posts.
Here at Latina Lista, I have my share of readers who never fail to show me the error of my thinking. While I (sometimes) appreciate their diligence, I always appreciate the fact that they come back and visit.
One regular reader, known to all of us as “Horace,” has been one of those kinds of readers that keeps me grounded in seeing what the debate sounds like from the “other” side. While we are diametrically opposed in our opinions when it comes to immigration issues, we are still on the same side when it comes to wanting the best for this country.
Tonight, Horace announced that he wouldn’t be as frequent a visitor to Latina Lista because he is due to be deployed to Iraq on August 15.

I may not be posting for a period of time, as I will be deploying to Iraq for God and country on 15 August, and my internet service may be restricted. Frank, liquid, Tex, et al, keep Marisa straight…

Well Horace, while we may sit on opposite sides of the proverbial wall these days, I do have one wish for you — stay safe over there and come back healthy so we can continue the debate, and finally learn that I’m right 🙂

    Marisa, you are truly a classy lady.
    And Horace, God bless you. War is hell, there is no other way to describe it. You come back safe, you hear, and give my love to all our brave American soldiers and don’t let them ever forget the love and respect and mostly, appeciation we have for our military.

    Wish you best Horace, I mostly debate you over at immigration prof blog but I’m glad I check ed LatinaLista. Make sure you check in when you can so we know you’re okay. I’ll pray for your safe return and possibly some new insight into the immigration issue 😉

    we have been on opposing sides of the coin as well in a few of the blog comments.
    I am sure that no matter our positions on the immigration issue, we ALL wish for your safe return.
    I hope to see your (sometimes infurating) comments back on the board soon.
