    But yet D.C. will advocate opening the borders to bring all this crime in. Let's drive the crime rate even higher, smart

    Why don't we stop calling it a "grave site" and just call it a "dump site" for bodies. A grave implies that someone was given a proper burial and these poor souls were just dumped into a big hole in the ground for reasons unknown.

    It's Obama's fault. Let's sue the mineshaft owners!

    Still about the breaking news thing. How can it be breaking news when they had all that time to count the bodies?

    Semantics, how is it a grave site rather than a body dump.

    This story is so breaking, that they only thought it prudent to write one sentence. Technically this is a tweet, ins't it?

    still surprises me how Americans have become desensitized trash, considering the comments here.

      Sorry Gia, we are too busy guarding your boarders, funding your economy and tending to our economy, environmental disasters and fighting your wars to account for every sensitivity. Its easy to sit back and call Americans insensitive based on a few comments from some rednecks in Alabama. Perhaps you are just as quick to cast judgments on those whom you don't agree with. Perhaps you should delve into our real problems if you are looking for sensitivity. ps. The Fox news website may be a more appropriate post for your opinions.

    The main idea of this story is:

    a) Mexican authorities found 55 bodies in a mine shaft near Taxco.
    b) The iPhone 4 came out today and it changes everything. Again.
    c) Obama is to blame for not closing the Taxco mine shaft.
    d) I don't know; I gave up before finishing the story.
