I did say I wanted to share!
I get to visit a lot of amazing sites in the course of my research, and even just in passing. Here are a few:
Borderland Beat. They supply a constant source of daily news articles about the cartels in Mexico and the surrounding border regions, which is not something I readily can find here in Toronto. More importantly, the freedom of speech and of the press we take for granted no longer exists in Mexico. Journalists and their families are hunted down and murdered for reporting on the cartels. In addition to making the news available to all, the website does a fantastic job of explaining the cartels, their structures, their regions. The staff at Borderland Beat provide do an amazing job at providing an important service to many people. I cannot imagine trying to write my books now without them.
