Thanks for the kind words folks. I knew the friends on the coal board would do the same thing and as Freddy put it the thought of what could happen fars out weighs the "it's probably nothing." It one of those things that you wouldn't be able to live with. Let's just hope its just some odd behavior.

I haven't heard any Mexican drug lords vow to kill me, my wife and children. On the other hand, that is the stated goal of the islamic terroists. I'm not worried about the Mexican drug war.


Honest answer Terry....If you lived near the Mexican border, what do you think the insurance company actuarial tables would show the relative risk of you being killed by Al Quieda or Mexican drug gangs? (& lots of Americans live near the Mexican border.....very few live near the tribal regions of Pakistan)
Personally I think Mexico is a much bigger threat to me & my family. (my daughter just came back from a vacation in Mexico & I have been there too)

You did the right thing better to be safe than sorry. Beings we're not acknowledging terrorists anymore they were just out for a cruise.

Look around, there are Mexicans living all around this country( not saying they are all bad & if legal have every right to be here) but the ones that don`t have a known source of income. Most are in & around the bigger cities but some are in rural areas as well. Appearence wise they look much like middle eastern, don`t you think terrorist could easily annex them easy enough?

That plant may look open and unprotected, but they have a large
squad of hup-hup guys with some real firepower on hand. I'd
like to see someone try.

The 2,966 people killed on 9/11 didn't live near the tribal areas of Pakistan either. Neither did the sailors on the USS Cole, or any of the other victims or islamic terrorism that have killed Americans. Mexican drug wars are over turf. They have pretty simple goals. They want to control the drug market and make money, straight up capitolists. They arn't religious zealots that want to kill you because you are an infidel. Mexican drug lords are not going to be strapping on suicide belts and showing up in the mall in your home town or hijacking airplanes and flying them into buildings or more on topic, they are not going to be conducting surveilence on power plants in PA with video cameras and plotting to blow them up. Americans have a short attention span. Just because there hasn't been a sucessful attack here since 2001, you've been lulled into a state of complacency. Al Quieda is patient and counting on our complacency. Underestimating their resolve would be a huge mistake.
I don't live near the Mexican border and I wouldn't go to Mexico, especially now.
