One Million Hits

The Paper of South Texas, the Rio Grande Valley's latest and greatest alternative weekly (and a publication I freelance for), received the one-millionth hit on its website today.

This comes on the heels of The Paper's political cartoon lampooning McAllen's mayor and the city commission over their refusal to negotiate with the police union. That image by cartoonist Ramon Ramirez ran on the cover of last week's issue.

The drawing proved extremely popular (at least outside City Hall), prompting television Channel 4 to do a news story on the cartoon and KURV 710 Talk Radio to run a People Poll (scroll down) asking if the 'toon upset listeners (78 percent said no).

Word is getting out that there's a new source of information in town. Congrats to the folks at The Paper of South Texas!
