Scenes from a Kleptocracy

Here's a nice little tidbit from Thursday's session of the Mexican Senate. For about the past 30 years, Mexican presidents have traveled to their inaugurations in a 1976 Lincoln convertible (because a president riding through a city in an open Lincoln limousine - what could possibly go wrong?) But not anymore because, as an opposition-party senator pointed out, no one knows where the car is. The president's car just kinda went...missing.
