The situation in Juarez, Mexico is getting so bad that one local paper asked the drug cartels: What do you want us to do?
More details can be found here, and below are snippets from the story about the paper's rather unusual editorial.
"What do you want from us?" El Diario de Juarez asked the cartels whose war for control of the border city across from El Paso, Texas, has killed nearly 5,000 people — including two El Diario journalists — in less than two years. "You are currently the de facto authorities in this city. ... Tell us what you expect from us as a newspaper?"
For many Mexicans, it was a voice that finally exposed in a very public and unusual way the intimidation felt across the country.
