A newspaper columnist known for writing about corruption and drug violence was slain early Monday — along with his wife and son — by gunmen who broke into the family home as they slept. Miguel Angel Lopez Velasco was shot to death in the port city of Veracruz, the latest of nearly 70 Mexican journalists slain since 2000 and the second to be killed in Veracruz this year. The press in Mexico has increasingly become a target of warring drug cartel factions and corrupt local governments.

I was taking photos at a music after-party in Pomona when a guy went off on me for stealing his friend's image. I might have been forgiven for thinking the friend would appreciate the attention. He was standing in the back room of Aladdin Jr.'s cafe with an open umbrella over his head. But no matter; I explained I was a journalist. His buddy was having none of it. "You're just another girl with a Tumblr account and a camera phone," he sneered. I was shocked. And not only that he would think someone my age would stay up that late if I didn't have to. Had the generation that documents each new cocktail and dessert tray on Facebook finally realized it was over-exposed?
