Some of these Mexicans Would Make Good Americans

Headline: "Mexican townsfolk kidnap drug boss' mom, demand loved ones."

Suddenly the Mexican government has found soldiers to dispatch to the region, "in hopes of defusing the situation."

I don't know. Sounds like your citizen militia has got it under control.

ummm...but they *are* Americans. Not citizens of the USA, obviously, but Americans nonetheless for that. Like everybody else in the Americas

Sure, it's pendantry, but when you take a step back for a bit....

I wondered when I wrote that headline if someone would say exactly that.

There are two senses of the word "American." I meant the good one, not the one that embraces Communists in Cuba and Socialists in Venezuela as well.
