Re:Could Mexico collapse?
Our Scoutmaster (a naturalized U.S. citizen in his late forties) just got back from a two-week vacation flying down and back to visit his mother and the rest of his family still living in Guadalajara, and I had a short discussion with him concerning this thread. While there, he did some driving in the area, and he said he felt perfectly safe at all times. His reaction to what I told him was, as long as you don't express an interest in drugs or the drug lords, you have nothing to be concerned about, since, as the old saying goes, "Curiosity killed the cat." Border towns may be an entirely different story, but inner Mexico, as far as he saw it, has none of the problems mentioned here. And I am certain if he had seen any hint of unrest there, he would have immediately started plans to bring them all to the United States.
