Jun 5, 2012 Full story: The Globe and Mail

Mexicans are so impervious to the numbing levels of drug violence that the staccato of the latest news about macabre killings is lost amid the white noise of its sprawling capital.

Mexico: A country with poverty that's no longer poor?

Mexico's economic crisis started when the PRI took office, they have control the government many years with corruption that clearly doesn't let the citizens get more income as they should.They just care about the interest of themselves. Mexico's GDP is in the Top 20 ( 15 rank), this clearly means that the country as a whole is rich;its just the way that the many is not equally spread to the people ( knowing that there's a bit more than 100 million people).

I also want to point that USA media portrays Mexico as a dangerous,dirty,poor country ; which in fact there's communities like the latter description,But definitely NOT all,I want to remind that there's more crime,rapes,and jail prisoners in USA than Mexico.

Best regards to USA !
