Global Resistance: Pop Culture Review

While there have been no Occupy protestors on Wisteria Lane, the hit television series, Desperate Housewives, has managed to hit home with thousands of American viewers. 

Carlos Solis, played by Ricardo Antonio Chavira, has been a top executive since the show began.  He’s had his ups and downs of course, did a stint in prison for a few months, recovered from a blinding injury, and his latest feat has been to sober up from an addiction to alcohol.  But none the less, the Solis’ have been shed with luxuries most typical Americans could not afford.
