2ND UPDATE LINK:
Like this newsblog's editor...San Diego real estate investor Marc Paskin...had a thing for
But he tried an unusual approach announcing his romantic preferences.
Paskin rented a billboard off the freeway in a heavily Hispanic neighborhood... proclaiming... 'All I want for Christmas is a Latina Girlfriend.'
Some vandals had other ideas...damaging...then destroying the $4,000 sign.
Turns out...Paskin didn't need it any longer.
He got over 15,000 email responses after just a few days.
The wealthy businessman's wife of 28 years died from diabetes in 2002.
Paskin is not publicity shy...having appeared on a USA reality TV show.
He said he received thousands of responses...and has not decided whether to replace the sing.
Still...there's a huge caution...asking Santa for a Latina novia.
It's called...la suegra/the mother-in-law.
Sometimes...a lump of coal is better.
