Witnesses said about 20 armed men entered the betting parlor and that the emergeny exit was stuck and some of the dead died from toxic smoke.

This is really scary. I can practically smell the smoke. How awful to be trapped (typical Mex. that the door was stuck) and die of smoke inhalation.

I don't want to sound like Chicken Little, but the sky is really falling. Or society is falling apart.

What is the average Mexican's lot in life?

One of the people I recently helped out in my practice went back to Mexico for his daughter's quinceanera party--they held it at the town hall. During the party several masked gunmen entered and assassinated a bunch of people.

The guy was very nonchalant about it. He said that he and his surviving relatives buried the bodies and cleaned up the town hall. And that one day, sure, he'll visit Mexico again.

I wonder if he just made it all up because he told me this story like it was no big deal. Very scary!

The latest report is that there are 51 dead at the casino. That number will probably keep going up.

The woman talking on the video is saying, "wheres the ambulance, where's the firemen?" Notice during the entire recording no police, fireman or ambulances show up while the people are burning to death inside. Traffic is normal, nobody even stops to look.

There is other late news that another casino in Saltillo owned by former Tijuana mayor Hank Rhon was attacked the same day.

We just had a house guest from Monterrey. He said they call them "Narco Casinos" because technically gambling is illegal there.

Now they are saying there are 61 dead and the Mexican attorney general has put out a 30 million peso reward for information leading to the capture of the culprits. President Calderon has called for three days of national mourning and said, "united will will overcome this tragedy." There are dozens of news articles in the Mexican newspapers where politicians are pointing the finger at each other for being responsible for the disaster. Apparently the casino was closed on May 4 of this year by the city for expanding the building without a permit. But the casino went to court and got an "amparo" and reopened a few weeks later.

How do you get a Mexican citizen to report crime?

Make it profitable.

Well, the judge who issued the "amparo" which allowed the casino to reopen has just resigned.

"El polémico Juez de la Primera Sala del Contencioso Administrativo, José Alfonso Solís, que fue acusado de dar amparos a casinos, renunció a su cargo, informó el gobernador del Estado, Rodrigo Medina."

The controversial Judge of the First Administrative Chamber, José Alfonso Solís, who was accused of giving "amparos" to casinos, resigned his position, said state governor Rodrigo Medina.
