Great Taco Hunt Tacos La Fonda

Feels good to be the new man on the street covering the taco beat in a brand new year, I'm feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to consume both delicious tacos and the news that surrounds them. Hope you are all enjoying this column and will send me taco news tips: cz1679 at gmail. -JT

LABrainTerrain Scoops LATaco
It's being called the taco story of 2006 and we missed it, but luckily our friends at LABT have the link for us: Oscar Gabriel Gallegos, wanted for the murder of two cops, died in a hail of bullets at El Taco Vaquero in Santa Ana last week as horrified patrons ran for shelter. If you read the story carefully, you'll notice that Mr. Gallegos ordered burritos, not tacos, which proves the old adage: tacos don't kill people-- burritos do.

Tacos That Stand Up
Looks like the taco holder people are about to go tits-up. Old El Paso has now created tacos that stand up, all on their own. How fun those must be to eat with their big old lateral section across the bottom. Now your mouth and belly can hurt at the same time! Progress, amigos.

Salmon Takes Tacos to Next Level
So proclaims the Herald Tribune of Indiana. They seem to be saying that tacos aren't already at the next level-- I invite the editors of the Herald Tribune to fly to Los Angeles and accompany us on a tour of "next level" taco trucks in Los Angeles. There are no salmon tacos to be found, but I think they'll print a retraction as soon as they get back to IN.
