We should be so lucky. Ever try to dig a hole in a pile of sand? It's not even close to over and won't be for some time. I totally appreciate and understand Mexico's sovereignty and macho stance, but often it's necessary to bring in outside help. In medical terms our bodies don't cure cancer, chemo is sometimes necessary and even then not always successful.
And, believe me, I understand how insane it is to bring in "help" from the country that is one of the main problems.
Ramifications are the ripple effect, I just got a note 5 minutes ago that two ladies who love this place and were looking forward to coming down in Jan, but now have canceled - yes, violence, or perceived violence and I tried to reason with them and get them to see you can't live in paranoia wherever - but, they've bailed.
Remember the old saying that goes: "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts"? The updated version is about Americans offering "support".
