Gee, Marjorie. How nice of you to finally admit "Yikes, Palomas Can be Scary After Dark"
after sucking up to the narco-tourist business in Palomas for so many years you can't be taken seriously as a journalist working on the Mexico border.

It must have been real convenient for you to ignore the constant months of reports of the THREE MILITARY HUMMERS PATROLLING Palomas at night, disappearing people.

Anyone who spends enough time among the people in Palomas (no, not the ones selling those bright, joyful, expensive images of their country while they send the actual Mexico straight on to hell) knows about this!

Or maybe because you're known to be a gringa just brown-nosing corrupt cartel mayors and business locals others are afraid to cross in any way, you've lost the hearts and the trust of the people of Palomas. And your soul as a writer.

Gee, and you really have it from your "sources" in Juarez that more "innocent" people are dying and disappearing in Juarez than in Palomas? Which I
guess means we should all feel better about the cartel-killings and the extra-judicial killings in Palomas?

I'd vomit at your ridiculous statement except I might choke on my laughter at the same time.

Three-quarters of the town of Palomas has fled due to the violence! And, no, 7 t 9 thousand people did not pick up and leave because they were cartel smugglers who had to find a better spot because they were so threatened by the VIRTUES displayed by the CARTEL MAYORS YOU CHAMPION, or your devoted narco-tourist trap owners.

Innocent young men in Palomas have been SNUFFED OUT for no reason other than they won't join La Linea!(La Linea? yes -- your wonderful honest hard-working Miguel Chacon, aka El Ceboyo, aka Spider, and I hate to think of how he got THAT nickname but I can guess -- maybe something to do with sticky duct tape?). Young teenage boys have been given death threats and their families have had to FLEE! Children have been kidnapped and murdered.

And what was Marjorie Lilly doing at the time?
Oh, sitting over a free margarita in a Pepto-Bismo color narco-tourist trap, wondering whether or not she'll shot by a local business owner she's been championing if she writes about anything less than rosy.

You might have been a real journalist, and helped save Palomas, Marjorie Lilly!

You might have looked into the situation and realized the real Palomas had more to gain from your exressing the truth about what's happening to it's innocent people than from your trying to prop up narco-tourist traps with your free monthly advertisement columns, as if those traps ever helped the innocent people of Palomas.

Palomas has been destroyed by the cartels! There are 3000 people left there now, tops.

And now you are writing that you are afraid you are going to be shot by a local Palomas business owner, because you're presenting Palomas in a less than positive light. You thought you'd stand by the scum to float as a journalist in Palomas, didn't you, Marjorie Lily? Well, guess what, you made a pact with the devil, and he never keeps his end of the bargain.

There's no honor in this cartel business! It's all about the dollars. It's their way or the scare-away.

You're a traitor to the humanity of the town, and I pray that when the TRUTH ABOUT THE CORRUPTION OF PALOMAS'S MAYORS AND ITS NARCO-TOURIST TRAPS ARE KNOW, NO THANKS TO YOU, you are known and branded as the traitor you are.

With a big "C" for cartel on your forehead.

I hear Spider is gonn open a computer lab in Palomas. Bet you anything it's for esos pinche cartel communications. A "computa-dora lab"! He'll says it's for la gente who need to learn computer, but we know which gente, don't we pinche cabron?

Don't even bother getting mad at that Borderlines column.
Lots of people tried to tell Marjorie Lilly about things in Palomas but she won't listen to a word. Then she goes to the mayor and turns them in. She was just passing money onto the mayor.

She's a meeddle-class gringa playing Lois Lane, and she sucks at that, too. Ignore her, everybody else does.

I'm not sucking up to the "narco-tourist industry" in Palomas. They often yell at me for what I write. And it's not just them, it's sometimes the
little guys who sell things on the street who get mad at me for keeping tourists away. I just try to tell the truth as exactly as I see it. I get criticism from both sides.
And I'm not "passing money" to the mayor, or reporting people who say things I don't want to hear. I've only visited with Chacon twice. They say you never know who is a dealer and who isn't, but good things appear to be happening in Palomas for the people who need work so badly. I don't have the inside story about Chacon, and I don't think the writers do either, considering the absurd slander about me they're dishing out.
