Deserts are dry? Sue.
"The families of 11 immigrants who died [while] illegally crossing into Arizona from Mexico have filed a $41 million claim against two federal agencies, saying the government's refusal to put water out in the desert contributed to the migrants' deaths." Do they have a case?

In the desert on the U.S.-Mexico border, charity becomes political protest
as humanitarian groups seek to put hundreds of gallons of water in the form of "watering stations" -- a few gallons of water and a blue flag -- on federal, military, private, and Indian lands.

¿Headed south anytime soon?
This fun, if somewhat depressing, little site is the work of the South to the Future
gang. These wicked, evil folks have taken it upon themselves to try and educate
the masses here in the SF bay area. What troubles me is despite the pervasive nature of the dang ol' Innernet
on our everyday lives, I don't see a lot of people buying into causes of this nature. Maybe I am just jaded and exhausted from dodging SUVs all over town. I mean, there are a lot of hills in SF so why shouldn't people have monster 4X4s? On a lighter note, this seems to be a neat little side project

This isn’t exactly hot news, but there hasn’t been much MeFi discussion of the long-awaited defeat of the PRI
in the Mexican elections.
