They Got Shorty

 Here's a good account of the Mexican and US police work involved in capturing Joaquin "el Chapo" (Shorty) Guzman last week.  This is a big victory for the rule of law in Mexico.

So many times I've heard the Mexican government had a "deal" going with Guzman at the expense of other traffickers.   It took 13 years to capture him, about the same length of time it took us to get Whitey Bolger and Osama Bin Laden.
