God Said "Ha!"

So you walk nearly 200 miles in an effort to impress the Virgin of Guadalupe, you're within a day's walk of arriving at her shrine, and how does she show her appreciation?

Jose Eduardo de Jesus Juarez, a 38-year-old pilgrim, died this Saturday morning after being crushed by a trailer carrying 28 tons of cleaning and bathroom products.

Oh, the humanity! Sorry there's no link, but the fact that the local paper includes the "28 tons of cleaning and bathroom products" in the very first line of the story is one of the reasons I love the local press here so much.
