Good Neighbors

We were just about to make fun of the State Deptarment's latest "Americans Warned to Avoid Parts of Mexico" advisory - I mean, most of the violence is drug cartel lieutenants killing each other, so your average family of five on vacation will probably be okay as long as they don't join forces with the Gulf Cartel. Besides, the Mexican Embassy hasn't issued any "Stay The Hell Out of Virginia" warnings.

And then...

Son of U.S. Consul Stabbed in Mexico

OAXACA, Mexico -- The son of the U.S. consul in southern Oaxaca state was stabbed during an apparent mugging, U.S. Consul Mark Leyes said Monday.

Hopefully, the US will time their invasion to coincide with our return. It'd be fun to ride in at the head of a tank column.

You know, the more I think about it, your Dad and I will just stay here and wait to see you and Laura when you are up north.

But hasn't that been your plan all along?

Well, sort of. But this time, the tank column would be going south.

Regardless of direction, don't go for that Dukakis look.
