    Texas border -- Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas -- are at war over control of the organized crime. The Zetas are trying to overcome their former compadres for those states. In Tamaulipas, the local and state police have been replaced by the Mexican military.

    The last number of dead I saw since Calderon came in (2006, I think) is 40,000. They're still finding mass graves, of course, and accurate reporting can cost you your life :(

    In the early '70s, I had some fine times back and forth across that border. I treasure those memories, but will always deeply mourn the loss.
