I’m watching the news about “El Chapo” Guzman and wondering how long the lie will continue? What lie is that you ask? The lie about Mexico as being a real country.

Woman Shot in Leg. Doesn’t Realize it for 5 Days.

A woman in Florida was shot in the leg with a 38 caliber handgun round. It seems the bullet was fired into the air during 4th of July celebrations. Obviously this is a bad idea.
