Thats a good question Rev - I do belive there is more violence there today than there was before. Or, maybe its just like a lot of other bad things, it was always there but just more visiable now because of increased media attention?? It could acually be worse than is being reported. How many incidents are there that do not get news coverage?
Either way, it has made me more aware of the potential dangers. Its sad the hard working people of Mexico have to suffer under the black cloud that this drug violence has brought. I love Mexico and hope the lawful citizens can get control back.
