Yeah, the number of pages was fine; if you can get us both a b & w and color version, that's best.

The part about U.S. banks laundering money is true --- Wachovia already got in trouble for it. .... This is pretty shocking: "He says the drug lords own the pilots of the Mexican Military choppers too. He says the incursions we've seen into the U.S. aren't innocent mistakes. "They're coming to drop off merchandise," he says."

This isn't Mexico. This is Texas. This is how far the real Drug War has spread. It's basically too late for us in South Texas. How far north of the border does it have to get for you to start worrying?

Dear G+ ... I know I've kinda been ignoring you for the past few weeks. It's not that I don't find you attractive anymore ... it's just ... maybe I would be more excited to hook up if you had Spotify. Plus, it's weird ... i feel like I'm naked in a room full of also-naked strangers ... which is pretty hot overall ... but where the hell are all the semi-familiar people I've never met except on Facebook, the human thumbnails who have all but replaced my tangible friends and family? You know the most intimate details of their lives, G ... can't you make them follow me or whatever the hell the verb is around here? Plus, you suggesting that I would want anything to do with Alyssa Milano or Wil Wheaton really made me think you don't understand me all ......
