Today's San Jose Mercury News editorial takes a stand supporting food lovers right to choose. The opinion piece describes the clash of cultures in Salinas and concludes,
" The current vendors deserve a chance to make a living and pay off their trucks. For many, the mobile food business is a giant step up from field work. And consumers deserve a choice on whether they want to eat sitting down in a restaurant or standing by the side of the road. Deciding when, where and how to eat tacos is a basic American freedom."
Huzzah to Julie, Carolyn, Aleta, Laurie, and the other chowhounds at the Merc for standing up for the interests of taco consumers everywhere!
