Trouble in La Laguna

Security in the Laguna has long been on the federal government backburner, despite a skyrocketing murder rate and some episodes of terrorism. It will be interesting to see if the murder of Carlos Valdés, a major shareholder in dairy giant Lala, outside of his house earlier this week, will change that. With the fallout of the Durango and Tamaulipas occupying most of the current federal attention (which calls to mind the way the mass murder in La Ferrie in January 2010 was overshadowed by the attack on the birthday party in Juárez the same night), I doubt it.

Sincerest condolences to the Valdés family.
