Save the planet, kill some Mexicans

Not only are Americans wreaking havoc in Iraq but apparently we could also be killing Mexicans as well. The current craze for energy Independence it seems, has driven up the price of corn tortillas in Mexico %400 recently. "Tens of thousands of people have marched through Mexico City in a protest against the rising price of tortillas." says a BBC article. So it would seem buying ethanol enhanced fuel might make some poor Mexicans go hungry. Sometimes you just can't win!
