Rough First Day on the Job

Christ. He probably didn't even have time to enroll in the 401(k).

A recently retired Mexican army general whose bullet-riddled body was found Tuesday near Cancun had taken over as the area's top antidrug official less than 24 hours earlier, officials said.

Retired Gen. Mauro Enrique Tello Quiñonez, his aide and a driver were tortured before being killed...

"The general was the most mistreated," Rodriguez said at a Tuesday night news conference. "He had burns on his skin and bones in his hands and wrists were broken."

Tello also suffered broken knees and was shot 11 times.

Going forward, we're guessing this is going to be a very hard position to fill. Even the street urchins might be reluctant.
