LETTERS

Mexico deserves our tourist dollars

November 30, 2008

I find it very sad that the letter about visiting Mexico [Letters, Nov. 23] was so angry. Although I would love to see Mexico solve its problems in fighting the drug war (fueled, sadly, by the U.S. demand for illegal drugs), I don't see how punishing the average Mexican citizen would benefit the cause. Tourism is an important part of the economy of Mexico. I have never felt unsafe there. As the Travel section always recommends, tourists must use common sense everywhere they go. Even in the U.S.
