And I Thought Barack Obama had the Worst Job in the World!

 Meet 20-year-old criminology student Marisol Valles Garcia.  She has just became  the new police chief of Guadalupe, Mexico's second-most violent city because nobody else would accept the job.  In an area where two local mayors were murdered in the past year and police officers are beheaded on a regular basis, this girl accepted the job.  If I ever wondered if it were possible to be proud and terrified at the same time, I now know it's possible!  I can't decide if Ms. Garcia has the biggest balls in Mexico or if she actually thinks that she can make a difference in the face of all the fear and despair.

And if she wasn't ballsy enough, her team will consist of 13 women with no weapons!  From CNN:

"We are simply going to talk with them, with the people, with the families, giving them confidence so they will quit being afraid, so they can leave their houses," she told CNN en EspaƱol."

I am not a praying person, but I hope that the people who do pray do so for her.
