Here's an article from Mexico City that describes the situation well.

In the meantime, hearings are going on in the US Congress even as I write this.

Thanks, Cal.

Potential visitors to that war zone need to be informed.

"His goal is to attain that by the time he leaves office in 2012, but he admits that may be too optimistic."

wow! 2012 is being optimistic?! that's a crazy situation...I read one a couple weeks ago that the police chief of some town had to step down because drug dealers were threatening to kill a police officer a day unless he stepped down. I really want to visit mexico but from what you here on the news here and see in the make it seem like you get kidnapped as soon as you step foot over there.

on the plus side, I suppose this creates jobs for the border patrol...
