“You've set the blog on fire”

“You've set the blog on fire,” Orlando Sentinel reporter Victor Ramos told me following my April 27th editorial essay on the Sentinel’s Hispanosphere blog. “Your blog post is flaming... It's that A-Word getting people riled up.”

Proving once again that immigration reform is a lightning rod issue, my editorial "Getting beyond the A-word on immigration reformset a record for visitors to Hispanosphere and stirred a torrent of reader comments, pro and con. 

My thanks to Orlando Sentinel reporter and blog host Victor Manuel Ramos (no relation) for the guest writer appearance.
