    The city of Juarez, Mexico has capitulated to the drug cartels. How long before El Paso surrenders too?

    I know I misinterpreted today's headlines or did I? The item was reported on Yahoo and then quickly taken down. But AP still has it up: "A Juarez editorial ignites a beleaguered Mexico" by K Corcoran, AP 7:48 AM, 23 Sept 2010.

    The tens of thousands of Mexicans that have been slaughtered by the drug cartels, the seeming impotence of the Federale's to provide national, regional or even local security and the rampant corruption caused by drug money bribes surely must come to a head for Mexico.

    The major Newspaper in Cuidad Juarez, El Diaro De Juarez, asked the question in an editorial. "You are currently the defacto authorities in this city.....tell us what you expect from us as a newspaper?"

    Tijuana, Laredo, Nogales and other border cities will have to surrender or their governments and news outlets will be murdered.

    Alarming and omnious.

    I heard about that newspaper in Mexico yesterday. It's a sad state of affairs along the border. The Mexican government has let this happen through corruption from the top all the way down to the streets. It is out of hand and it is now spilling over the border into our great nation. When is our government going to wake up to this fact?

    For a moment: Senior Cartel speaking to his #2, "Hey Paco, did you read the newspaper today? Juarez surrendered to us, amigo. Take a memo to the Mayor of El Paso. Dear Sir: learn a lesson from your sister city and refrain from telling people bad stories about us and stop patrolling this little area of the border, from midnight to six AM and I will make you so rich the US Treasury will be asking you for a bail out, Si?

    Signed,

    Senior Cartel

    It was fucking hot and dry as HELL! Great little airport. Its interesting talking to the cab drivers telling you where (I) should and should NOT go. They all flat warned me NOT to visit across the border unless i absolutely had to go or had business there.

    It has a run down downtown area but with some work would be GREAT! It empty's out at about 3pm, so if you want dinner get it as a late lunch. The hotel staff tells me the reason for this is because all of the workers go back home over the border.

    I doubt If El Paso is in any danger. I was up there a few months ago and all seemed well.
