M for Murder

Another reason why we like the idea of a narcotraficante president: these guys aren't content to just rest on past performance. They're always asking, "Can I - can Mexico - do better?" Take the piling-up-1000-dead-bodies test. When we first arrived back in 2006, the annual "deaths from organized crime" tally (meaning all drug war-related murders, good guys and bad guys) didn't hit 1,000 until July 1, 181 days into the year.

In 2007, the 1,000th victim died on May 14, the 134th day of the year.

In 2008, it was April 22 - day 113.

Yesterday, February 20 - the 51st day of the year - organized crime took a look in the mirror and said to itself, "Sí, se puede!" and stacked up another 30 corpses to bring 2009's total-to-date to 1,003.

Increased Productivity. Record Results. Proven Leadership. This message paid for by Narcotraficante para Presidente 2012.
