Mexican drug war reaches as far as Seattle


Another day, another body bag in Juarez

The L.A. Times -- forced into reporting news out of an industry-wide desperation to survive -- has been focusing lately on the Mexican-American drug, gang and illegal immigrant crisis.

Check it here and here.

Let me preempt the solution likely to be put forth by some eager beaver in the Obama administration -- just legalize the drugs. Voila! Problem solved.

We could turn these cartel butchers into respected businessmen overnight. And happy businessmen mean happy donors come reelection time. And remember, Obama wrote about doing "a little blow" when he could afford it back in the day. I smell endorsement deal!

But before you get too excited about the Times' work here, note they also included a piece slamming federal empowerment of local police departments to nab illegals, a program for which [politically motivated] "Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has called for a review."

I love that line! I knew you had the goods to make the collapse of Mexican infrastructure seem like a screwball comedy!

Hmmm... Perhaps an idea for my next script!
