Re: [tamartin] Scared of Mexico

Rather than soliciting anecdotal evidence from Mexico aficionados, why not start reading the Mexican papers online? Many feel that the US press is xenophobic and inclined to exaggerate incidents that occur in Mexico especially as they affect tourists. That said, I believe President Calderon who just yesterday said that the Mexican economy would have to take second place in his attention to the war on the drug cartels. I doubt he was kidding. And for those who say that folks will be just fine if they stay away from unsavory people and places,...tell it to the kindergarten kids in Tijuana who were evacuated during the bloody shootout last week.
