La Familia Michoacana

I spent the whole day in an airplane flying from Cape Town to Abu Dhabi, back to Germany. I just learned that I missed Charlotte Gainsbourg's concert in Berlin! What a shame!

I recovered an old "New Yorker" (May 31, 2010) issue with a very long and very interesting article on La Familia Michoacana by William Finnegan (what a great literary surname, Finnegan's Wake!).

And then, today's issue of "Time" presents a much shorter version of it, with emphasis on the pseudo-religious motivation of La Familia Michoacana.

What a disaster is Mexico!

We cannot even defeat Argentina in the World Cup... that is much easier than putting order in the streets.
