    Too bad you were not a member of that mine shaft. The world would be a better place without comments such as yours. You are not intellligent but others have already pointed that out.

      it was reported in 6-2 as approximately 25 bodies, clearly the "breaking" part of this news is that the body count has doubled...

    If people cant see bad things brewing, and why we need to get the border under control, they are truly thick. But then again, people want to legalize pot for casual use, and that it will help with the border situation, so there ya go. I guess they stopped teaching things like History in schools when they started pushing math and socialism.

      I remember math but I must have missed the socialism class.

    Ok all, leave Tim alone. I'm sure he feels ridiculed enough after realizing his mistake. Do you people always make fun of those who took the short bus to school? I mean, I understand the story is incredibly long and minor details slip through the cracks sometimes. So cut the guy some slack please. ;D

    How about telling us where Taxco is, or maybe a cool google map (I hear that you can do that on the interweb).

      Taxco is in the mountains roughly between Mexico City and Alcapulco (about a 3rd of the way). It's a beautiful old village, and during the early 70's produced half of all the silver in North America.

      don't most people wishing to become an american citizen have to wait 15 years or so? if this is the case is 15 years not long enough to learn to spell and say the english laguage, as an american it only takes 12 years of school to finally absorb all we are required to know in order to get in college!

    Wow... I guess any news involving Mexico and deaths will make it to the front page of CNN now a days... No need for details, all you need to know is that people died in Mexico. Bunch of B/S

    How is this breaking news? Who are these people and how long have they been there? Maybe get some details and write an article before presenting this as breaking news.

      Considering it happened 5 days ago you would think they would have a little more info at least.
