    This study does not do enough to look at what the change in political conditions (PRI to PAN) did relative to the existing situation. It also is so easy to study this issue from Los Angeles and quote US small scale success…. which is not comparable. I give the authors credit for effort, but they also need to admit how easy it is to be an arm-chair quarterback. In typical US fashion, studies and calculations somehow are used to find solutions to control sadistic animals…. Calderon had monumental courage and started a process that will take many years to complete.
