Life is sweet when you're brown.

Ginger Kerricks' accomplishments are inspirational unlike nothing else. A role model hollywood rarely has the opportunity to flaunt or gloat over. Pride is stirred knowing that El Paso might have been rated low in national surveys in the intelligence department, but people of Ginger's ilk and genius reflect a different story. She's set a seemingly high standard but one that if attempted can't do nothing more than lift one up to his/her highest efficient perfomance level.

Great day for news. We've got one young lady that is in the news for being a Maxim hottie and another young lady that is a rocket scientist leading a NASA mission. They have both done El Paso proud and it's so nice to read these stories after reading about those horrible Chapin girls yesterday. Kinda restores one's faith, huh?

It is great that Hispanics are moving up in the world. The article was to long and made her story sound like the movie Armegaddon. When Billy Bob Thorten was rejected as an astronaut but he help saved the world.

For those of you who are envious of her success, suck it up and drive on. She got there because she is qualified and not for some affirmative action program.
