Mexican blogger vows to fight despite threats

The name of the Facebook page matches the personality of its administrator: Courage for Tamaulipas.

Tamaulipas is the northeastern Mexican state that borders Texas, a diverse place whose reputation is overshadowed by violence carried out by rival drug cartels. Under threats from the drug gangs, many media outlets make the choice to self-censor and not cover the violence.

But reporting violence is precisely what Courage for Tamaulipas does. The Facebook page, which has reported on the region's violence for more than a year, will remain active despite a bounty put on the administrator, presumably by a cartel.

    As a Mexican chef I'm getting ready for Cinco de Mayo in February. Please stop by our restaurant for tacos and tamales.

    For our Cinco de Mayo we are offering 99 cent margaritas, 50 cent longneck beer, and after all you can eat nachos. It's a celebration.

    Over 7 billion people on the planet and we still haven't fixed anything or really made anything better. Better tweet about it.
