i blame you, david simon

you know, when i read something like this:

[the] Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, working with the Imperial County Narcotic Task Force, Imperial County District Attorney Otero, and Imperial County Sheriff Raymond Loera … seized 550 pounds of cocaine and marijuana and indicted 16 people – “dealing a body blow to Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel”

i know that i’m supposed to think, well that’s good, mexican drug cartels are bad (and in a perfect world, pot would be legal and regulated and we’d all get it from our friendly corner bodega).

but instead, i just think, “drugs on the table,” while shaking my head and wondering if these 16 people aren’t just flunkies and the marlos and the stringers of sinaloa are still out there, business only mildly interrupted.
