The Alameda Daily Noose and I never miss an opportunity for an encore presentation of one of our journalistic masterpieces. That's why we were at a bit of a loss as to why we did not re-run this particular piece last Columbus Day. Then we remembered that we intentionally failed to celebrate Columbus Day last year as a test of the perspicacity of our readers, a test you have failed miserably. Despite having one full year to notice the omission, not a single reader reported it to us. Shame!
So, even though you have not earned it, the Alameda Daily Noose and I hereby magnanimously offer you with your encore presentation, for which you have exactly one year to be grateful to us:
Praise from Margarita Encanto: A Columbus Day Tradition

What a joy it is to see, all the time, your newest reviews of motor oil. The way you describe their performance makes me feel as if I were in the auto supply store myself, comparison shopping by reading the labels, or perhaps under the car, draining the old oil to make way for a superior variety.
You are so unbiased in your evaluations! They have made it clear to me that my preferences in motor oil are indeed correct. Please continue with this valuable community service. As my mother always said when she was making me check the fluids of the family car, saber es poder.
Gracias por todo,
