I have never seen such a crock of BS as the postings by the Neanderthals dissing Mexico. I received a Ph.D. from UH in 1974 so I qualify to comment. I've been living in Mexico for over 7 years and I feel safer here than anywhere in the US. I grant that there is often violence in border towns, but for the most part it is among narcotraficantis. Keep your nose clean, don't interfere, and use the same common sense you need in the states, and all turns out well. Ever heard of Cabrini Green in Chicago? Samo Samo. You don't skip the pleasures of Chicago because of the Green. Unless you're one of the Neanderthals from the southern states.
