Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

I was reminded of this thread because on a recent trip to Mexico we saw almost the exact opposite of what the article claims. Tortillerias using Maseca are closing because supermarkets do a better job at the same price or less, while those that use fresh masa, offer specialty sizes or blends, etc. seem to be thriving. I don't doubt the quantitative aspects in terms of decline and industrialization over 20+ years, but with the rise of the middle class the current trend is certainly towards improved quality and a return to tortillas in place of pan bimbo.
