“There was a donkey painted like a zebra, hitched to a cart full of sombreros, a Tijuana photo opportunity. But no smiling tourists stepped into the picture frame.” Ha ha. Wait, really? 18,000 murders in three years and now Tijuana is empty? But… but… but the U.S. had 17,000 murders in 2006 alone! The murder rate per population in Mexico isn’t even double ours. But. WHY was the donkey painted like a zebra though??? I don’t get it.
