Floods in Mexico
The State of Mexico is presently suffering from some acute flooding, which authorities say will create serious problems for 10 days or so. Like the Juárez residents fingering Calderón for the massacre of 16 teenagers last weekend, some neighborhoods are demanding the presence and support of Enrique Peña Nieto as they recover. (At the risk of making this too much about politics...) Given that in the last big-time emergency in his region he was conspicuously absent, it'll be interesting to see what people make of Peña Nieto's performance here.
