Sadness South of the Border

While I was in high school, I lived less than an hour away from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Who cares? Well, about ten years ago when I was in high school (I know--I'm old), there were reports about the disappearance and death of young women. Sadly, these reports never stopped. The New York Times has a story about the horrendous "police" work that is going on over there:

International observers, human rights workers and federal authorities say it illustrates a disturbing pattern of malfeasance by state law enforcement authorities responsible for investigating Mexico's most gruesome murder mystery: the deaths of more than 350 women in this border area over the last decade, including at least 90 raped and killed in similar ways.
I guess this story hits close to home since I grew up nearby and have feared many times for the safety of friends--Juarez was a destination of many post high school/college students. Hopefully this article helps to bring the issue to a wider audience and gets Mexico serious about finding the perpetrators.

You can find out how you can help at Amnesty USA. Hundreds of women have died in this area and it's about time that it stops!

Don't pay anyone to submit your site to search engines. Just do it yourself. Go to the following links and submit your site. You just need to submit to the main search engines. Submit your site to google, yahoo and msn.. This is free. It will take anywhere from 14 to 90 days to get listed in the search engines. Other search engines link into the major search engines. Example would be altavista which uses yahoo submit process. There are techniques to speed up the process of search engines submission. Read more about make easy money

Hi

Sorry to intrude but I saw your blog, noticed you have anonymous posting enabled and thought you might be interested in this great search engine optimization tool for your blog and website (if you have one) that a techi mate recommended to me. Apparently it's all the rage in the IT arena.

I am involved in web site design london and I've found the best way of promoting my blogs and websites is The amazing link referral program. Don't worry it is absolutely free to join and you can generate visitors to your site by visiting others. It is really quick and easy to set up and the traffic you generate will help your website increase in google ranking. Give it a go now!!

I have generated amazing traffic from this program - increasing my affiliate sales and cannot recommend this enough. Believe me, if you have tried all the other programs on the market that you have had to pay for then you realise this one is the best - and it's free!!!

Best of luck with the blog!! I hope you get as much out of this program as I have ;-)
