Not the Onion (and not the Angus either)

ABC News has some hard hitting analysis with a piece called “Top Mexico Cartel to Keep on Despite Capo Capture.”  When I first saw this title in a tweet, I assumed that it was the Onion.  But oh no, it’s a real headline of an article written by AP reporter Katherine Corcoran!  It begs the question of what ABC expected the Sinaloa cartel to do?  Just fold up and admit defeat because the top guy is arrested?  Has that ever happened in the history of drug cartels?  And even if it had, El Chapo has already escaped once from jail so maybe he’ll do it again.  How pissed would he be if he managed to escape and then found that his crew had decided to call it a day.
