(This letter made my day today. Not everyday that happens, tho hateletters usually crack me up.)
Mr. Lalo Alcaraz,
On September 11, 2012, I looked through the comic strips of the San Diego Union and noticed you were one of only two artists that dedicated your work to the people who lost their lives on that fateful day 11 years ago. Thank you very much sir.
I am a retired Navy man and a staunch conservative republican, so I am aware our views on most issues are 180 degrees out. Our differences are petty compared to what the families and friends of the victims have had to endure. On 9/11, you did not forget and neither did I….I will never forget. To this day, it brings tears to my eyes just to think of the suffering and loss of life we witnessed as a nation….as brothers and sisters.
I have not missed a single “La Cucaracha” strip for the last three months and I am a fan for life.
My family wishes you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. May God bless you all.
