at the beginning of October, the son of the former governor of Coahuila (nephew of the current governor) was murdered, ostensibly by the Zetas/police working in association with the Zetas

apparently his father, Humberto Moreira, just came out and, among other things, directly linked the Zetas to the coal mining industry in Coahuila, which by extension would include the proposed coal mine in my hometown (the company seeking the permit is Mexican, and among other things, they want to construct their own railroad bridge over the Rio Grande instead of using the ones that already exist)

on one hand this was obvious as hell from the beginning, but it’s still kind of amazing and terrifying to see it outright confirmed by someone so prominent. (And hopefully it’s this in combination with the recent FBI arrest of a local commissioner for smuggling drug money into Mexico that’s behind the Texas Railroad Commission’s delay in making a decision on that permit, but who knows.)
