A journalist friend here in Sacramento asked me why, exactly, that taco trucks were good. Not why was the food good - we all know that some are and some are not. He was asking why I believed they were a beneficial thing, and why the Sacramento City Council should reverse their decision to effectively outlaw the trucks. What is it about these vendors that is good for the community, besides the obvious (allowing third-shift employees, factory district staff and others to eat something other than MacDonalds; cheapness; nominal healthiness). Any ideas?
