Tough Town

AFP: New murders break 2008 record in Mexico: "A new spate of violence has pushed the homicide rate in the Mexican border town of Ciudad Juarez to an unprecedented 1,701 murders, breaking the record set just a year earlier in 2008.

Officials reported 14 new violent deaths over the weekend in the town, which sits across the border from Texas, pushing the homicide rate past last year's record level of 1,653 murders.

In all, 22 people were killed on Saturday night and Sunday in the two Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua, which border the US states of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas."

This could be Dallas, Houston, Austin, or Alvin after Texas secedes from the United States and the drug gangs gobble it up.

Word verification: "swardsh". Mediocre 2002 movie with Travolta and Jackman, of note only for Hallie Berry's bare breasts.
