It's kind of stupid to be meandering around down there now, considering the fact if you're maimed, kidnapped, or murdered, you get the Mexican version of Barney Fife to solve the case. They were warned. Let Darwin sort 'em out.

When will people learn that Mexico is not safe. The government has lost control. Even wealthy Mexicans and businessmen cannot travel freely without fear of being kidnapped, or worse.

The pressure is dramatically reduced for the Mexican government to do anything significantly proactive because America serves as a pressure valve to allow the more intelligent "can do" Mexicans to ditch their own country, leaving the apathetic behind to just take what comes. Just another example of democrats meaning well, while creating a social catastrophe. Plus they get to keep their nannies and gardeners at slave labor prices.

sad news, bad for the industry also, but despite the robbing, Carnival cruise lines stock prices are up again (today $37.51) http://www.shipcruise.org/carnival-cruise/585... (this link shows all carnival cruise lines stock ownership benefits - if you own 100 or more CCL shares you'll be eligible for an on-board credit (which amount depends on destination).
