Seriously, I don’t think I’ll ever venture into Mexico, even if I would have a capable guide like Kevin around. Living in San Diego, we have a lot of general contact with the news and people out of that somewhat cool/somewhat chaotic country. Whenever I drive to Melanie’s apartment in the L.A. area they have huge border patrol stations to catch anyone smuggling anything or anyone into the nation proper.
The level of crime and anarchy that goes on there is astounding and moments like this scene depicted in the comic are all too frequent for people traveling there. People might hate on the United States for it’s various flaws and questionable leadership decisions but I’m at least grateful that I don’t need to worry about gun toting maniacs extorting money from me every time I go out for dinner.
