More on Mexico City Blast

To get back to the bombing in Mexico City two weeks ago. Immediate speculation pointed fingers at the usual suspects: maybe it was the drug cartels, or maybe it was the EPR, the guerrilla group whose name always comes up in the initial search for clues regarding potentially political violence in Mexico.

Turns out it wasn't either of these, but a homegrown assassination attempt against a local police agent. The Mex Files has the info, with a touch of appreciation for the inherent, low brow comedic nature of the crime.
