Friday Reading

Alejandro Hope has a long, convincing look at the role Mexican criminal organizations play in American cities, which you should read now, before the eggnog impairs your analytical functions. The gist is that the frequent arguments from American officials that Chapo (or whoever) is taking over street-corners from Baltimore to Fargo are unsupported and unlikely, something with which I heartily concur. He also generously mentions a couple pieces of mine, which really only scraped the surface.
