This is true story of my fight to earn the right to be Smiley #1

My mother, Carmen, often sent me to La Paloma Market, while my brother Salomon watched I Love Lucy re-runs. We lived in East Los Angeles’ Ramona Gardens housing project, where I had to be selective about the routes I took.

Since I feared the barking dogs along the alley, I always took a shortcut through the hill that was controlled by a local gang, the Hill Boys. The homeboys never bothered me on my daily trip for groceries, especially since we attended Murchison Elementary School at the same time.

Running POCHO is a dirty job but some juan’s gotta do it

pochoonlineRunning POCHO is a real job. It takes hours of work, dedication and writers, editors, artists and videographers.

And it takes time and money.

We’ve got the time. We need you for the money.

  • We’d like more Internet bandwidth which means we need more money for our hosting company.
  • We’d like to rebuild this website, which means we need to hire a web development company.
  • And we’d like to pay the volunteer editors, cartoonists, reporters, and photographers who contribute because they believe in the mission.
