Gustavo Arellano tells the New York Times that his dream is to host an hour-long radio program about The Simpsons. The Times also reports that OC Weekly writer's second book, which will be part memoir and part Orange County history, is forthcoming. (His first was a collection of ¡Ask a Mexican! columns.) For the two-book deal, he received an advance in "the mid-six figures," which he used to buy a decidedly un-Mexican automobile, a 1974 Cadillac convertible. "The Mexican thing would be to buy a humongous truck," he says.
