The day the Chilango's truck disappeared from the Capitol Mall was maybe the second most depressing day of the Idaho State Legislative session, second only to the day they voted to keep investing in genocide in the Sudan. We were dismayed to see the truck pictured in the daily paper the next morning, on its side in the middle of the street. To many it was just another stupid wreck, but to us, it was another week without a chile relleno burrito to get us through the afternoon committee meetings. Within a few weeks, a brand-spanking-new Chilango's truck had taken its place. Maybe insurance helped gentrify the truck a bit, but the menu's still the same.
