Interpol in Mexico: Busted / Great Exhibit on Colombian Art in Tampico

Milenio.com reports that the current and former directors of Interpol in Mexico have been busted for being on the narco pay roll. Figures. If there was one place the international organizations and cooperation might be half useful it would be in the control of narcotics, both in health treatment and in fighting production and distribution.

On another note, the Milenio Tampico daily is reporting the opening of what looks to be an interesting exhibit of art in that city by the well known artist Fernando Botero. Glad Tampico could get on the circulation of a show that I think has been pretty well all over the place.

Glad to see more than coca linking Colombia and Mexico.
