    Other than hearing it on CNN a day or so ago I have no first hand knowledge of exactly how the deal was finalized, but if you have two customers in a Hispanic grocery store saying otherwise I'm okay with you blasting me to wherever smithereens may reside. I do enjoy travel.

    I'm not sure who has more credibility, CNN or the two customers. I’m guessing neither were there, and it probably doesn’t matter anyway.

    Mexico released their copy of the agreement today. Can you take your finger off the trigger now?
