i jsut came across this from the ap:
it is a particularly stiking article because of what it leaves out. the piece only mentions that tens of thousands of tourists are being bussed to ball rooms and not once does it mention the fate of the mexicans living there. (the only mention of mexicans is of them boarding up windows in hotels. where they and their famlies will go when this thing hits can only be left up to the imagination. i doubt there will be many mexicans in those ballrooms.)….if there’s anyone down there with a camera it might make a particularly strong piece to doccument how the tourists are treated and how the help is treated. …although i wouldn’;t apporach the ap with anything concerning the mexicans. aparantly they’re only interested in covering the people who are in their target market….oh and not to worry about the tourists being ripped off. according to Jesus Almaguer, president of the Cancun Hotel Association, ’It would be inhuman to charge them."
