tu ciudad: Great Non-White Hope

ciu.jpgThe inaugural issue of tu ciudad is on the stands, and while it won’t win any Pulitzers, it’s a surprisingly entertaining read. Which strikes me as a small social milestone: Latinos are now better than Anglos at putting out insipid yuppie lifestyle magazines. For instance, the restaurant listings actually include places you haven’t been to and might like to try. (And which don’t advertise in the magazine!) And there is a two-page spread about LA Times editorial-page editor Andres Martinez wherein he recommends intellectually demanding books (for instance, a constitutional law casebook). Hard to imagine this sort of thing in, say, Angeleno or Los Angeles Confidential.
