A police chief in the state of Jalisco, Mexico was murdered with one of the missing Fast and Furious weapons:

WASHINGTON—A high-powered rifle lost in the ATF’s Fast and Furious controversy was used to kill a Mexican police chief in the state of Jalisco earlier this year, according to internal Department of Justice records, suggesting that weapons from the failed gun-tracking operation have now made it into the hands of violent drug cartels deep inside Mexico.

Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, the police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo, was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire. Also killed was one of his bodyguards. His wife and a second bodyguard were wounded.

Heckuva job, Holdie.

Plus, LambiePieK drank teh Kool Aid…gaaaaaaaaah!

I don’t wanna even think what that could mean.

She drank actual Kool-Aid, which tastes every bit as foul as I recall from my yout’.

Even fifty years ago, I thought that stuff was vile compared to Wyler’s lemonade mix or Hawaiian Punch. Hell, Kool-Aid was as bad as Fizzies.

But I’ll admit it’s slightly better than King Stir or Tang.

Hey! Fizzies were great! Unless you had to drink the result, that is, then it was more like carbonated Kool-aid.

Oh, and Grape Tang wasn’t as bad as that horrible orange-colored stuff. It had real, artificial grape flavor!

“True dat!” re Fizzies. Never had the grape Tang; it was unusual to have any of that sort of stuff in the house when I was a kid.

I also recall the artificial grape and sour apple flavors of Adams chewing gum…which I don’t think I’d find palatable at my advanced age.

Dunno about Pixy Stix…

Pixy Stix -- sugar and citric acid in a paper tube. The citric acid causes your mouth to water enough to close off the end of the tube, leaving most of the mixture out of reach without making a mess.
