Joaquin Guzman Loera (El Chapo) was apprehended in Mazatlan, Mexico this morning. He took Osama bin Laden’s place as #1 on America’s most wanted list. It’s not on the news wires yet but it soon will be. They’re flying him to Mexico City for a press conference and he’s in the air as I type.

He was scheduled to fly to Las Vegas next month to watch the Canelo Alvarez vs Alfred Angulo fight. I wonder if he can get the money back on the tickets — or if his successor will simply sit in his seats?


  1. It's of passing interest that most current drug lords learned their trade from Amado Carillo Fuentes. After he went down, they all carved out a piece of the empire – and then it started to get really violent. I'm not suggesting that Chapo's arrest isn't a significant victory. It is. One must alway keep in mind the law of unintended consequences, though.
