    Excellent article – I remember this all very well.

    Unfortunately, the problem with drug-related violence has merely shifted north to Mexico which these days seems about as safe as downtown Basra. The Colombian cartels were in decline in the early 90s and, as you said, the country is a lot safer than what it once was. However, the problem has merely moved further north rather than be eradicated all together, no matter how much money the US throws at the problem.

    It’s tragic that it takes events such as this to put things in perspective.

    I miss Andres, as a colombian and a fan of Atletico Nacional i can tell you that he is a folk heroe here in Medellin and to this day you still see banners with his face in the stands. RIP

    p.s. not to nitpick but Andres played for Atletico Nacional, you have it wrong in the second paragraph but right later on.
