Mexican collapse?

We are mucho screwed!

From a few years ago: “Hey Rich!   Let’s skip the last part of today’s conference and go to Tijuana.  I think that’s a great idea!”

Present day:  I wouldn’t step foot in Mexico after the latest news about those crazy drug gang killings.  A few years ago it was scary enough wandering around those streets.  Especially when your DW (Designated Walker) leaves you hanging.  I keeed! I keeed!

If the Mexican govt collapses, that would mean nothing but bad news for us here in the States.  We might have to make a run for the Great White North.
