El Oso

Retired general Carlos Bibiano Villa Castillo was until recently the public safety director of Torreón, where his policy was literally "Kill'em All, Let God Sort 'em Out." He left his job not because anyone had a problem with that - everyone seemed more or less cool with the whole extra-judicial executions thing - but because he got a better offer: public safety director for the state of Quintana Roo, which he begins in a couple of weeks. We don't have a whole lot to say about this except to note that for some odd reason Gen. Villa arrived for his first day in Quintana Roo dressed as the 1986 Super Bowl. We don't know much about the security situation in QR, but if he can pull the various agencies together the way he pulls together the Pats and Bears in one magnificent sartorial package, we predict a lopsided victory for the forces of law and order.

On the other hand, a combination of arrogance, hubris and an abundance of swagger can lead otherwise sensible people to make total jackasses of themselves:

What Would Walter Peyton Do?

They played that music to get Manuel Noriega to surrender.

The Bears talked the talk and then walked the walk. Go Bears!
I never understood why they screwed Payton.
