As much as I complain about the Iowa winters, at least it is safe compared to the city I lived in just south of the border. Over the weekend, residents of Reynosa cowered inside their homes while a war was raging outside. Been there. Done that. And here is a report of some of the shit that went down yesterday. http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2013/03/detonations-and-blockades-in-reynosa.html I've read about videotaped beheadings (I'm warning you, don't go there), dismembered bodies (again, you don't want to go there), but a friend's comment on facebook just grossed me out. He witnessed street dogs eating the remains of a dead body yesterday.
Damn. Makes my bitching about water in the garage seem petty.
