Yes the holiday means you likely have the day off, so you and I both know you are reading this in your pajamas on the couch.

While we are on the topic New America Media’s top story reminds us that on Labor Day it is important to remember that immigrant labor is key to economic growth.
And as a last stop I found a Mission blog worth checking out by writer/ artist/ community member Rio Yañez. A native Missionite, Yañez is good for giving you the latest chisme on the block with an artistic twist. In his latest entry he gives us his take on the new Mission Comic shop .
Once you make it out of the house today go check out his latest mural, Ghetto Frida’s Mission Memories, located on the side of Galeria de la Raza, ( 2857 24th St at Bryant). Can you imagine a thugged out Frida Kahlo cruising down Mission Street? So cool!
