The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Coming to America

For John, BLUFPeople from Central America endure a lot just to have a chance to sneak into the United States.  This must be a great country, to attract such passion.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From the article linked below, it sounds like folks in the Mexican State of Tabasco have been purloining "fishplates" from the local railroad.  The results have not been pretty.
MEXICO CITY – The theft of a metal bar used to link two rails caused the train crash last weekend in the southeastern Mexican state of Tabasco that left 12 dead, the Communications and Transportation Secretariat said.
That is just terrible.  Twelve dead.  Seven of them "undocumented" Honduran immigrant, hopping a freight for Northern Mexico, where they could cross over into the United States.  They were on a scheduled run of the scrap metal hauler, “La Bestia” (The Beast).

And the last two paragraphs in the article from The Latin American Herald Tribune:

Besides the dangers inherent in hopping onto moving trains, Central American migrants must contend with criminals and corrupt Mexican officials.

Gangs kidnap, exploit and murder migrants, who are often targeted in extortion schemes, Mexican officials say.

It another news article from The Latin American Herald Tribune we have this;
Mexican authorities detained 80 undocumented migrants, most of them from Central America, in three separate operations, the National Migration Institute, or INM, said.

The migrants, 47 Guatemalans, 22 Hondurans, eight Ecuadorians and three Salvadorans, were intercepted during routine inspections of buses and in an operation to combat people trafficking in three states, according to the agency.

It may not be illegal to be illegal, but it can be dangerous to your health.
