In a corner of his Garden Grove garage, Lino Espino is pecking at his gray electric typewriter, the Brother SX 14 he bought for $15 at the swap meet on Golden West Street. He's typing his latest corrido, a story told in waltz-time song and used by Mexicans for centuries to chronicle current events with pathos and satire.
