  1. Busy day folks. Probably be like this for several more days.

  2. Will it top 3,000 homicides by end of December for Tijuana??

  3. Having spent years visiting Tijuana from So. CA in the 70's I would be interested to know a bit of background on when the real Crap started hitting the fan there? It was such a great vacation stop growing up and I loved it. Now I would be terrified.
