Kind Reader,

Narco News launches an experiment to receive your comments about the news and commentary we publish: Here it is! Your comments page.

Here, you can offer your opinions and ideas in response to our reporting on the drug war, the media, and democracy, from Latin America.

You can disagree or agree with our writers. We insist that your comments be directly responsive to specific stories on Narco News, that you don't engage in promotion or advertising of products, and that you follow Uncle Bruno Fallaci's first rule of journalism: "Do not bore the readers!"

When you post a comment here, you will receive an automatically generated email message at the address you provide. You must reply to that email - confirming your address - to have your comment considered for publication (this seeks to protect you, too, from someone else impersonating your email address).

The opinions expressed on these comments pages are exclusively those of the author and not necessarily those of Narco News, its publisher, or its writers. They are pure opinions, and not endorsed statements of fact.

We may, on ocassion, edit comments for grammar, spelling, brevity, and clarity, but we may also, on ocassion, leave errors intact. The burden is on you, the writer, to make your comment coherent. We reserve the right to reject or accept any comment for any reason, without implying our agreement or disagreement with its contents.

Thank you for participating in the Authentic Journalism renaissance.

from somewhere in a country called América,

Al Giordano
