Please Check It Out

I don't know how many of you blog readers have an interest in the problems (and they are legion) that the US has, which involve the US-Mexico Border.

The murder rate in Tijuana, Juarez, Nogales and other cities on the other side of the border is staggering. Issues like illegal immigration, narcotics, violence on a par with Baghdad, Iraq, corruption and so forth are not represented by many blogs at the moment.

I want to shine a light on it and have started a new blog:

Feel free to agree, disagree, rant, rave or just keep up to date with the often untold stories, that you will find are frequently are not covered by the media in any depth. I have some personal insight into these matters and will share some of them with you in blog format.

This blog will not be content merely to shine the light onto Mexico, but will also delve into matters in Latin America that touch on the political, and the bi-lateral role that the US is playing....sometimes good, sometimes bad, always HONEST.


  1. I'll check it out LL...I've read some about this problem. It is horrible. They rival the Taliban with their barbaric beheadings and worse.

  2. LL - I noticed you popped up as a new follower for me. I decided to check you out. After blurking around for several minutes I have decided I can learn a lot from you. I am like minded and like to read others thoughts..... you fit the bill.
    Thanks for stopping by and letting me find you. I'll be around.... : )

  3. Great cartoon! Basically says it all.

    Oh, that's some blog your follower "sonisak sun" has... to each his/her/its own.

  4. "But - - - doesn't everyone deserve to be freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?"
