No one has been charged with his murder. Driven by gangs, drugs and guns, the bloodshed in President Obama's adopted hometown has resulted in a body count that exceeds the 312 murders this year in New York and 212 in Los Angeles, cities with populations dwarfing that of the Windy City. The toll here is up 25% from 2011: 391 through Sept. 23. Last week, two men who had been beaten to death were found in the trunk of a car. The same day, a 17-year-old boy and a 33-year-old man were found shot to death.

Eh Wah had been on the road for hours when he saw the flashing lights in his rear-view mirror.
The 40-year-old Texas man, a refugee from Burma who became a U.S. citizen more than a decade ago, was heading home to check on his family. He was on a break from touring the country for months as a volunteer manager for the Klo & Kweh Music Team, a Christian rock ensemble from Burma, also known as Myanmar. The group was touring to raise funds for a Christian college in Burma and an orphanage in Thailand.
Eh Wah managed the band's finances, holding on to the cash proceeds it raised from ticket and merchandise sales at concerts. By the time he was stopped, the band had held concerts raising money via tickets.

The sheriff's deputies pulled Eh Wah over for a broken tail light on Feb. 27th.
The deputies started asking questions a lot of them. And at some point, they brought out a scruffy drug-sniffing dog when they found the cash, according to the deputy's affidavit.
There was the roughly $33,000 from ticket sales and donations, much of it earmarked for the religious college back in Burma, according to Eh Wah and the band members.
There were cash donations to the orphanage in Thailand, small bills bundled in two or three dozen sealed envelopes with the orphanage's name written on them.
All told, the deputies found $53,000 in cash in Eh Wah's car that night.
They took Eh Wah to the police station for more questioning. They let him drive his own car there, with deputies' vehicles in front of and behind him the whole way. They interrogated him for several hours.

About safety where are the US travel warnings? Why doesn't the US of A appear on the top of the list of travel warnings? Tell us that Hillary Clinton!

The shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., on Monday marks the 20th time since Barack Obama took office that there has been a mass killing incident.

According to Mother Jones Magazine data, 174 people have lost their lives since January 2009 in such incidents. The incidents must meet several criteria: four or more killed, it must have been a solitary shooter, the killings must have happened in a public place or series of places.

I've come to the realization that nothing will be done to stop the madness. The mass killings by crazed gunmen with weapons that serve no purpose other than to kill will continue unabated.
After all, we've already witnessed the unthinkable:
A congresswoman meeting with constituents outside of a grocery shot in the head. She was lucky enough to survive, but six people who went there to meet her were not. TWENTY 6 and 7 year-old children slaughtered in their classroom, along with 6 adults who did everything possible to protect the children in their charge.
On Monday, the crazy man with the guns killed twelve people. But they were just your everyday, run of the mill, normal folk who raged in age from 46 to 73. No, they weren't babies. And no, they weren't high ranking elected officials.
If our representatives in Washington weren't moved by 20 babies' bullet-ridden bodies, or by one of their own being ambushed, they certainly won't be motivated by the loss of another dozen or so mere citizens whose job it is to protect.
Be smart be safe come here Aloft in Cancun

and food:
In 2010, a large shipment of export beef from American cattle ranches was rejected by Mexican health authorities and returned to the US.
The reason was that copper found in the beef exceeded safe levels for human consumption.
The rejected beef was then sold to consumers back home in the states. Legally.
Maybe you ate some?
The shame of it all!
Turns out that the US has not gotten around to define safety levels for certain harmful substances potentially found in beef, mostly residue chemicals like high levels of copper and arsenic.
How did a nation of burger loving, steak chomping meat lovers reach this point?
I'll tell ya.
Through corruption evidence is hidden in return for favors.
Come on down to Mexico and enjoy a tamale my friend.
