How many people named Martinez do you know? We have so many Martinezes that it seems as if the colonizing Spaniards, on the way to conquering New Mexico, told everybody on the burro train named Martinez to hop off in El Paso.

As ususal Ramon is wrong again. The two most common Hispanic surnames in the U.S. are Garcia and Rodriguez.

They are the "Smith and Jones" of the Hispanics in the U.S.

But hey Ramon, don't get facts get in the way of another dull column...
He never claimed it was the most common surname in the US. Read the column again.

---They also say Martinez is the most common surname in the Spanish language and also ranks with Garcia, Rodriguez, Lopez, Hernandez, Gonzales(z), Perez, Sanchez, Rivera and Ramirez as one of the most common surnames in the United States.

U Sure R Dum y tambien mas "fairy" que la chingada.

Why did he write about Martinez, if you concede that there are much more common Hispanic names? What's his point? And what is yours, you microencephalic?
No puedes ni pensar cuando estas sobrio, menos cuando estas dando mamon a su favorito, el ramon. Nomas asi, en relacion romantica con el, puedes tratar defender tanta ignorancia.

"They also say Martinez is the most common surname in the Spanish language and also ranks with Garcia, Rodriguez, Lopez, Hernandez, Gonzales(z), Perez, Sanchez, Rivera and Ramirez as one of the most common surnames in the United States."

Here read it again dumba**:

"...as one of the most common surnames in the United States"

Notice how it doesn't say, "is the most common surname in the United States"

I wonder why "Consider the Source", who doesn't know me, makes up this weird homosexual rant about me and the author instead of reading the GD column again. By the way, according to his brilliant logic, if someone actually read the column or if someone actually understood what they read and if they pointed out what a dumba*s he is, then that makes them a "fairy". Brilliant!

I also wonder why people who obviously hate the man's column's so much keep on reading them and then take the time out of their day to comment.

The only 3 times I've read his articles is because I see so many people complaining about them.
OH well
