"Last Friday it was a major drug lord in Ciudad Juarez. Over the weekend came the capture of the alleged head of meth production of a group terrorizing the state of Michoacan. And on Tuesday Mexican authorities said they caught a major figure of a splinter group in Acapulco. But each piece of positive news the government showcases seems inevitably to come paired with a setback or other negative development in a battle against organized crime that has already seen some 40,000 killed since Mexican President Felipe Calderon took office in late 2006."
