Now on MySpace . . .

Mexican outlaws' fans honor them on MySpace, Facebook | World | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle: "There was a time that Mexican outlaws knew they'd reached a special level of notoriety when countrymen penned ballads bragging of their exploits.

Now, they get MySpace pages.

A new breed of crime fan is turning to the Web to humanize drug capos and glorify their deeds.

MySpace is home to the most extravagant tributes, but lower-profile pages have also been created on the rival Facebook. In most cases, profiles are written as though the drug boss himself is the profile creator."

That is is so freaking bizarre. The website creators are "honoring" people who carelessly gun down anyone on the street, including the creators and family.
