Just in time for the national walkout, back in the home country the Mexican Congress makes us all feel a whole lot better about our southerly neighbor’s contribution to law and order by handing Vicente Fox a bill decriminalizing the possession of drugs. Which drugs? All drugs. In what amounts? “Small” amounts — though the definition of smallness is as liberal as the rest of the bill.

“This law gives police and prosecutors better legal tools to combat drug crimes that do so much damage to our youth and children,” said Fox’s spokesman, Ruben Aguilar.
Better tools — like bent spoons and broken light bulbs. Fox
will sign. Junkies will multiply. Deaths will accumulate.
Mexico will rot.
