Did I ever say I wouldn't go back or that there was rampant violence against Americans?

I love Mexico and it's people. IMO, I just think it's not safe right now. If you disagree, that's cool.
In NM, we get constant reports of the state of affairs in Columbus, Palomas, Juarez, and anything regarding the border. The violence is ratcheting up and you would be hard pressed to find anyone around here that will disagree with that. If you don't believe me, go to Pancho's in Palomas and hang out for a nice quiet evening.
You have to admit Gordy that most of the reports are stemming from drug/cartel violence in certain areas along the border. MX is a big country and most of it is no more dangerous than riding in the Midwest.
