Same old problem

It’s all over, Jack. The road is open again.

Do you even know what their beef is? They want the Policía Estatal to leave the region so they can cultivate their poppies in peace. Another symptom. Not the problem. The problem remains the failed laws and policies that empower organized criminals seeking to supply U.S. consumers. Like I said elsewhere recently, we all know why there are cartels and where their money and firearms come from.

My point was to alert anyone planning on heading south. Glad it's over.

You ask: "Do you even know what their beef is?" I can read the papers as well as you, be it in English, Spanish or French. I also live here so I am as close as you are to the situation. I also travel to Petatlán, Lázaro Cárdenas and other places often to visit friends or other reasons. If I had planned to be heading to Petatlán today I would have been glad that someone would have given me a heads up.

The newspapers here report nothing...burying your head in the sand does nothing good for anybody.
