Pablo Mora, a journalist and native of Ciudad Juárez, rails against the drug-fueled killings: “This my city of Avenida 16 Septiembre, the Victoria Theater, cobblestone streets, the bullring, La Central, La Fogata, more bookstores than El Paso, the university, the ballet, garapinados, pan dulce, the mission, the plaza, the Kentucky Bar, Fred’s — now it’s known for these idiotic thugs.”. Pablo goes on a rant invoking no fewer than 39 writers, poets, architects, painters, sculptors and other notables of art and culture, ending with the disgusted observation that “now the names are ‘famous’ narcos — no more than sociopathic murderers whose sole contribution to the culture has been the narcocorridas sung by no-talent sycophants. Mexico, the land of pyramids and palaces, deserts and jungles, mountains and beaches, markets and gardens … is now known as a slaughter ground. And for what? So North Americans can get high.”.
