Well, at least Latino bloggers are finally being recognized, right? Not quite!

I've heard that there's a Latino blogger, Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga, who owns the most-visited political blog in America. Except, he says he isn't part of any ethnic minority. According to him, he isn't "Latino" or "Hispanic" at all. I guess that just having a Latin last name and a mother from El Salvador doesn't mean that a person is Latino in his heart. That sure is true in the case of Markos ("Kos") Moulitsas Zúñiga.

I guess that's why only 1% of his site visitors are Latino.
