    crime turns out to have a cozy relationship, high-up, with law enforcement, government, etc.. It's not something people much want to talk about, but there it is.

      what it is that they are asking for, once we've drowned government in the bathtub. But yeah, it's already here in so many ways . . . mob rule.

      The cop I alluded to in a comment above had a cozy racket blackmailing couples in a quiet plaza. He stopped what I feared would wind up as a rape, in my case (which is good, among other reasons because rape isn't much of a punished crime in Mexico). But het my assailant go and shook me down for every nuevo peso in my pockets, then made a move on me.

      This time, 17 years almost to the day, he made the mistake of trying to shake down the mayor's nephew.

      Sometimes a .sig is just a .sig.
