Re: Coahuila: A violent year

Here in Piedras Negras it's been eerily quiet for about the last 3 or 4 weeks.
Not sure what's going on. Anyone have any theories as to the calm we are experiencing?

We haven't noticed as many military convoys or federales cruising around.
Could this be part of EPN's plan to back off a bit to control the violence?
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience

Re: Coahuila: A violent year

@curioso.  I predicted before the July 1 election that violence would escalate between the election and EPN taking office on Dec. 1, and then drop dramatically after he was inaugurated, thus making him look good.  I don't think it is coincidental, but rather evidence that the "new face" of PRI is following the old policies of PRI in making a deal with the cartels to let then operate in exchange for a decrease in violence.

I am glad to see a decrease in the violence, but when you make a deal with the devil, he always collects.

Words are powerful weapons, be careful how you use them.

Re: Coahuila: A violent year

i can always change anything you think appropriate, but no matter as long as it is readable to convey the point.  Those little sneaky dickens on mainboard always complain about translations even Vato's which is hands down the best ever.

DD....and everyone...
I am finishing the top 20-25 BB stories of the year.  not the most relevant or best but most read.

I say 20-25 because I want the Jenni rivera story and i have to go over 20 to include hers :)

The way I see it.... the more people that don't like me, the less people I have to please
