CHICAGO - Some residents of Chicago's largely Hispanic Pilsen section are upset over a new doll in the popular American Girl series because her storyline says the Mexican-American youngster and her family left the "dangerous" neighborhood for a better life in the suburbs.

American Girl officials think the criticism is 'El Loco'. "We think this doll was very tastefully done and great care was taken to get everything right, down to the smallest detail."

Editors Note: The American Girl Book series is well done. They missed the boat here, but overall they do a commendable job.
