Of Potholes & Graves

                                  Four die in armed brawl over a pothole

Pothole MEXICO CITY - Four Mexicans were killed when a dispute between two Tzotzil Indian families over a pothole in the street escalated into a full-blown shootout.

One of the families closed off the cracked concrete and mud road in the town of Banelos in the poor southern state of Chiapas to fill in a hole left by heavy rain.

Insults led to blows and finally the two families shot at each other using various caliber guns and a hefty AR-15 rifle, Reforma said. Shootings are not uncommon in Mexico's little-policed indigenous regions, where many take the law into their own hands.

  I wonder how long before THEY sneak across the border? Better hope THEY don't move to San Francisco - it woud be a blood bath.
