A lesson in democracy from south of the border:

Hanging protest banners from sculptures and pitching tents in the middle of Mexico City's historic Reforma Boulevard, supporters of the leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador paralysed the city's financial district yesterday, and refused to leave until they received a ruling on demands for a recount in the presidential election.
It's hard to imagine Americans up in arms over fraudulent elections. I guess the Mexicans are not the sheep we are.
