Slashdot | Narco-Blogger Beats Mexico Drug War News Blackout

Suki usually does Slashdot stories. However, this caught my eye when I was checking for an unrelated item.

Slashdot | Narco-Blogger Beats Mexico Drug War News Blackout:
'An anonymous, twentysomething blogger is giving Mexicans what they can't get elsewhere — an inside view of their country's raging drug war. Operating from behind a thick curtain of computer security, Blog del Narco in less than six months has become Mexico's go-to Internet site at a time when mainstream media are feeling pressure and threats to stay away from the story. Many postings, including warnings and a beheading, appear to come directly from drug traffickers. Others depict crime scenes accessible only to military or police.'
Suki series tie-in: In the 2030s world I write about, drugs are legal. The only controlled recreational drugs are powerful anesthetics and hypnotics, which are still illegally obtained and used.  In Sarah's fanfiction, a 'designer drug' celebrity is featured, but all if her stuff is legal and in demand. In Suki III: Never Let Us End, Nancy works for John & Suki's therapist and has access to powerful, still controlled, hypnotic drugs.
