Have you heard about the spate of shark attacks in Mexico? I won't rehash my thoughts on the danger of going in the ocean, I've made my feelings abundantly clear. I just wanted to point out a little tidbit from the story. Looking to reassure visitors to Mexico, marine biologist Chris Lowe, of California State University, Long Beach offered this choice piece of wisdom: People have a much better chance of dying of food poisoning going to Mexico than being bitten by a shark. Yeah, that ought to bring'em running. Of course it does relate to one of my other big questions about people and their holidays... Who freakin' vacations in the third world?
