Ireland is a good example of the kind of property crime you get with total gun control.

I've been asked for my Tx voucher going back several years and, rightly or wrongly, I associate it with ID confirmation since my passport & DL have my full name and my reg and CC have my initials. My Tx voucher is otherwise useless in Mexico, anyway.

Vehicles with insurance would be good but licensed drivers, working brakes and lights would be good as well. Big problem in the rural areas where there are few state cops, fewer Federales and where the local cops have no motivation to write tickets because their town gets none of the cash and the driver is likely a relative anyway. Don't ride at night.

Or MSM as a whole, for that matter.

I don't have in-depth knowledge about much but whenever MSM reports on something I do know about they've gotten it as much wrong as right. One easy way to get viewers to stay tuned through the next commercial break is to lead with a story on Mexico. It's no more than that, IMO.

Trust me, viajeros, when you end up in Marfa, even if you don't stay there, have dinner at the Hotel Paisano

DO NOT LOOK AT THE MENU

Just order what Jimmy did

That pistachio encrusted steak is off the chart

Only topped by a post-ride massage by Salma herself
