Trouble in Mexico

Dear Editor:

Calderon’s being on the verge of losing control in Mexico has as much to do with the fraudulent presidential election that put him in office as with the drug cartel. Mexicans view the U.S.-educated Calderon as an elitist and U.S. puppet. Only about 37 percent voted for him. I fear that any moneys the U.S. sends to Calderon ” how much is it supposed to be, $700 million? ” ostensibly to “beef up Mexico’s security force,” translated “keep the rabble in line” will be used to suppress political dissidents.
