Why we have a U.S. State Department (and pay them well), reason number 37:


With deaths in the drug-war torn city of Juarez approaching 2,000 since January, 2008, making it one of the most dangerous places on Earth, the State Department took the following action Friday:

"The U.S. State Department has renewed a travel advisory warning Americans about an increase in violence along the U.S.-Mexico border.


"The alert does not recommend staying away from the country or any particular part of it, but advises Americans to stay away from prostitution and drug-dealing areas."


So I guess it's okay to cross the border to buy your prescription drugs and pinatas, but for Pete's sake -- and your own (!) -- when it comes to those other drugs and sex, just stay home and "Buy American!"

And, don't forget: it's particularly OK to buy American products that were assembled in Mexico.
