    Stop flying into lousy weather... The president of Poland died because of it, and countless others around the world.

    Whenever any vehicle carrying law enforcement or armed forces personnel has an "accident" in Mexico, the drug cartels are the leading suspects.

    In 15 years we'll know if they had a part in the crash that killed the Secretary of the Interior a few years back.

    @NeutralObserver – Actually, Mexico did go drilling for oil and screw up. Does the Ixtoc I ring a bell?
