Just a Delivery Glitsch

Nine decapitated bodies were found in an abandoned truck along a road in Guerrero State, Mexico. Casual explanation: murdered in a drug war in Guerrero. More realistic explanation: murdered to decide which criminal group transports our drugs to us. Basic explanation: our US determination to solve our drug problem by conducting a Drug War has resulted in a few more war casualties. The linchpin of the Drug War is Prohibition of Drugs. Yes, we are clinging, again, to the idea of "Prohibition of a Social Evil." This time, however, the absurdity of such a stance is being played out, additionally, in the bed of a pick up in Guerrero. The Doser.
