Not so just up the street where protesters from San Reyes Nopala were dispersed by city and state police using tear gas. Several people were injured. (Story in Spanish from El Imparcial)
Finally, I like to juxtapose events that happen here and imagine what it would be like in El Norte if the same thing happened there.
Just imagine if John McCain or John Kerry had been kidnapped and held for seven months by some nefarious and nebulous organization and was finally released. Well, that is what just happened here.

Former Mexican presidential candidate Diego Fernandez de Cevallos was released in the past few hours after spending seven months in captivity and is in good condition at his house in the central state of Queretaro, Televisa reported Monday.
“He was released a few hours ago. He is in good health, he is weak. He spent seven months and six days in captivity,” Televisa reporter Joaquin Lopez Doriga said on one of the network’s morning news shows.
“The news is that Diego Fernandez de Cevallos has returned to his home. He is weak but strong over having been released after this extremely long abduction, which is undoubtedly the longest registered in Mexico,” Lopez Doriga said.
The veteran politician “is at home, he is sound, he is safe and, most importantly, he is free,” the Televisa reporter said.
