The real deal in Mexico

The article linked above is about a discovery of 12 Mexican federal agents who were tortured and killed in Michoacan, a state the borders Guanajuato. I haven’t been in Mexico for nearly 2 years now, but I have heard reports from some of my Mexican friends in smaller villages that the drug cartels are changing the lives of ordinary Mexicans in what were once peaceful rural villages.

For those of you who live in Mexico, what’s the story? Do you see a difference in the level of violence and crime where you live?

  1. Thanks, Jennifer. It's good to hear from you as you are living in (according to the Washington Post) the center of the new drug wars.
