Some Good News
Milenio says that a slightly lower number of Mexicans were killed in acts stemming from organized crime in February than in January. The overall decrease was from 904 to 799 according to the newspaper's count, which is typically slightly higher than other organizations' tallies. Of course, the three fewer days in February account for virtually all the difference; the per-day average dropped only 29.2 to 28.5 persons killed. At the same time, though it might not be cause for champaign, anything other than an increase is good news at this point.
