Mexico, at least the parts affected by this wave of violence must be real real real hellholes. They inaugurate their new President tomorrow. I heard a bit of a news story saying they are closing a lot of avenues, etc. down there.
Juarez use to be known for women vanishing... going back decades, the NPR report I heard said that the area where this new President-elect is coming from in the State of Mexico has had this same problem big time.
