I dropped a family member off last night at his buddy`s house.
Driving home I passed a 24-hour check cashing service at the intersection of Coit and Spring Valley Roads in North Dallas. The check cashing building was lit up like a Las Vegas casino. All the neon signs affixed to the building were broadcasting in Spanish only. Across the street from it was a dental clinic. Naturally, the clinic accepted Medicaid and CHIP (Children`s Health Insurance Program). Immediately adjacent to the clinic was a tax service office. Illegal aliens use ITINs (Individual Tax Identification Numbers) in order to claim the Earned (sic) Income Credit of over $2,000 per American (sic) child. Thus the need for a tax service catering to those who work in the underground economy.
And towering above the barrio`s strip center?
You can`t make this stuff up.
Roger Chaillet has written us many letters, for which we are very grateful.
