Went to see La Salsa Man this morning -- and only found his pants!

[Marybeth Mueller Gardner, 08/18/2018]

We've spoken with the La Salsa Man authorities in Dodge City. They assured us that his top half is not missing, but out for repairs. He should be a whole Man again soon, but they couldn't provide a definite date.
