Besides the million dollars we’re spending on security, do you think the Pope’s visit to Juarez will have an economic impact on El Paso?
The hotel rooms aren’t filling up. There are still plenty of avails on Airbnb. I get the feeling that the Jumbotron mass at the Sun Bowl isn’t meeting expectations.
Maybe with all the school districts closed, the Sonics and Dairy Queens will do better business than usual. Baby sitters and day cares might get more traffic, as well.
But why would somebody come to El Paso for a papal visit to Juarez?
Since it was announced, El Paso has been acting like the unpopular girl whose best friend gets elected prom queen. Hey, hey, we said, look, look, the Pope’s coming to Juarez. He’ll be right over the border.
The posturing is pathetic.
