There will be blood

A bizarre and telling story in the World's Worst Newspaper about ever gorier developments in the war for control of drug traffic in Cd. Juárez.
As the death count in Juárez mounts, residents on both sides of the border now are wondering how seriously they should take an e-mail warning predicting that this weekend will be the "bloodiest and deadliest" in the city's history.
