Martini Republic takes local blogs to task today for their (our) anemic coverage of La Gran Marcha yesterday. Joseph is probably right but it's interesting, we didn't find round the clock posts about the significant event on MR's angeleno blog either.

But there was chatter. Matt Szabo noted that there wasn't a single arrest, Loteria Chicana explained why she wasn't at the march (and what the March does or doesn't mean) while Franklin Avenue discussed the power of the Spanish-language media this morning (not to mention our dear editor's post this AM). Not local, but Slate points out that Los Angeles Latino Power put immigration issues on the front page of just about every major paper across the nation.

In a bid to be fair and balanced (or cruel and unusual), we'll also link to this photo essay at We apologize if this classy and high-minded discourse on the complex issues of immigration by cinnamon girl makes you throw up in your mouth a little.

Update: Okay, okay. We couldn't let free republic be the last word. Wash your brains out with the first person reports from the folks at la indy media.
