Where do tacos come from? It's complicated.

"Unwrapping the history of Mexico's real national snack uncovers classism, dynamite, and shifting definitions of culture." The history of tacos, the linguistic history of the word "taco", and the tenuous notion of an "authentic taco" have a whole complex of intersecting stories behind them.

Yo quiero tacos libres.

Yo quiero tacos libres. Free tacos for everyone if the Mir lands on target. I really want to have something pithy and meaningful to say about this, and the over-marketing of everything, but I'm just too appalled.
