Survivor

Thank God there are still some Latinos left in Arizona.

Daniel Hernandez had been U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' intern for five days when she was shot Saturday outside Tucson.

The junior at the University of Arizona was helping check people in at the "Congress on Your Corner" event when he heard gunfire. He was about 30 feet from the congresswoman. When the shots began, he ran toward them.

...Using his hand, Hernandez applied pressure to the entry wound on her forehead. He pulled her into his lap, holding her upright against him so she wouldn't choke on her own blood. Giffords was conscious, but quiet.

When they arrived at the hospital, Hernandez was soaked in blood. His family brought him clean clothes because the FBI took his for evidence.

Here's hoping all his papers are in order.

Lies, Lies, Lies now 60 minutes is spreading the xenophobic fear of mexican cartels and corruption in the U.S.

We all know mexico is a wonderful mystical place which is safer than any major city in the U.S.

That's what happens when you get between America and her drug supply - especially living so close to the Texas Gun Bazaar.

Santiago looks like a war-torn hellhole, doesn't it? Especially that bombed-out main plaza.

Byron Pitts? Seriously?

Apparently the Narcos didn't like the 60 minutes story either. Looks like the Narcos did not approve of Jorge Domene Zambrano talking about them on 60 minutes.

But luckily the town where this happened doesn't look like a war-torn hellhole, so everything is OK.

The AMA didn't approve of Dr George Lundberg talking to me on 60 Minutes once.

Chicago is such a hellhole. And Daley Plaza! The horror. The horror.
