Soccer Anyone?

This article is somewhat off-topic, but morbidly fascinating. Over the New Year's holiday, among the many murders in Juarez, what is developing into the next front on the war against terror, a man's body was found. This man was found, his body cut into seven pieces, and his face removed and stitched onto a soccer ball. This ball was found near the City Hall. The event was most likely done while he was STILL ALIVE.

A creepier demise could not be thought up by Hitchcock.

A very macabre beginning to the new year for us in living in border regions. We can only hope the US does not see more of this violence spill across. Much of it already has, but it is conveniently ignored by the mass media and is seen as being a strictly Mexican problem.
