Mexico, Assassination

Mexico, Assassination

Political murder hurts not only surviving members of the family
but all supporters, the dead politician’s community. Remember

how many dreams and spirits fell with Colosio? Now this
recent Mexico has disposed of Cantu in Tamaulipas, candidate

for governor, kidnapped a former head of the PAN, Diego
Fernandez Cevallos. When will the crap shoot, breakdown of state,

impossible living under threat of traffickers with automatics, almost
daily mowing of ordinary Mexicans into bits in Ciudad Juarez,

escapism into narco ballads, easy circulation of weapons, fear,
when shall all this end--and not in statistics about untimely death ?
