Default Spring Break Warning

PLEASE, if you have kids in college or know kids in college who are planning on Spring Break, tell them not to even THINK about going to any of the border towns in Mexico that have become so popular. The horrific drug violence is on the increase and there are now even firefights with automatic weapons occurring during daylight hours. In fact several months ago there was a huge shootout between government forces and drug runners who had taken over an entire apartment building, that resembled a mini war and which was near one of the major tourist areas on the coast.

Todd,

Excellent advice. But most of the kids go to Cancun these days I believe, and so should be out of harm's way.

That is, if you don't consider any harm in a hangover.......!

Dean, you're probably right. Nevertheless it should be noted the army stormed the Cancun police headquarters and arrested the police chief and about thirty of his cops I believe last Spring.

As regards that huge gun battle, it occurred in the old Acapulco tourist area which I understand abuts the newer beautiful tourist area.
