Another Story From the Banquet Table

Do these remind you of hand blown goblets from Matamoras? Perhaps, years ago, if you were lucky, you watched such goblets hand blown beside a fiery furnace. No such luck nowadays. The goblets on this buffet table are imitation Mexican glassware.
The labels say ‘Made in China.’ The price? A fraction of those hand blown Mexican goblets. The cost to our neighbors across the Rio Grande? Incalculable.
