Re: fear in the news

This fear-mongering is not new. In 1974 or so, another thirty-something young woman and I planned to drive from central B.C. to Mazatlan in her brand new Volvo. The hue and cry from family and friends, citing news reports from papers as far away as New York, was not sufficient to deter us. It was the trip of a lifetime punctuated by only a couple of minor incidents--the result of quixotic weather and/or youthful poor planning. There was never a threat from the Mexican people. Never.

p.s. loved the allusion to Lindsay Lohan! :o)
