I am upset with Gustav Lopez's Nov. 23 letter. I really don't believe U.S. citizens think Mexico's drinking and driving laws are any different. There is one major difference [when] driving under the influence of alcohol on U.S. highways and in Mexico. In the U.S. one can drive illegally without insurance, get free medical care if necessary, then sue the restaurant or bar that served you and go home rich. In Mexico you go straight to jail and there is no medical care with or without money.

If you're hoping to find an unusual gift for the movie buff on your Christmas list, you may be able to do that while also helping 20th Century Fox retire its considerable debt from the budget of "Titanic." Some pricey, one-of-a-kind artifacts among the "Titanic" collectibles offered in the current J. Peterman Gift Book include a 13-foot fiberglass anchor used in James Cameron's "Titanic" ($25,000), and six fiberglass lifeboats--none of which are seaworthy ($25,000 each). But you have to hurry.

ROSARITO BEACH, Mexico -- Sandra Mehas was enraged when she woke up one morning and saw the front entrance to her housing complex blocked by a steel beam. Mehas, the homeowners' association president, went straight to the mayor and demanded that the beam be removed. Soon after, workers reopened the road. So when Mayor Luis Enrique Diaz decided to open a new city office to help international residents living in Rosarito, he knew exactly whom to call.
