The San Francisco Chronicle is doing a border series this week
, celebrating the Mexicanization of south Texas. Today`s locale and subject for On the Border
is "Elsa, Texas."

Many Texans draw an imaginary demarcation they call the Mexican-Dixon Line, from El Paso east to Houston, which essentially consigns heavily Latino south Texas to Mexico.
