      The local Taco Time on Sixth Street is displaying on its
      advertising sign that they sold 39,358 tacos during their Cinco de
      Mayo sale of 69 cent tacos.


      Considering the Moscow population to be 23,866, then deducting 16
      percent for underage kids, leaves about 20,047 adults.  Dividing
      this number into the number of tacos sold means that this year's
      Cinco de Mayo TPC -- Tacos Per Capita -- is 1.96.  In other words,
      enough tacos were sold May 5th so that almost every adult in town
      could have had two tacos, if they were all equally distributed.


      As far as economic statistics are concerned, it may not be as
      grand as full employment, but a local TPC approaching 2.0 is a
      pretty impressive number nonetheless.
