IMSS application process discouraging, to say the least.

Dear Sir:

My husband and I applied for IMSS through the Chapala office in May 2011.  We followed every instruction to the letter … completing applications, paying fees, getting blood, urine and ECG tests, keeping detailed records of every visit, and making multiple copies of every document.  Based on my ECG test, and saying that I had a heart problem, IMSS sent me to Tlajomulco to see a cardiologist who looked at the very same ECG printout and said, “I don’t know why they sent you to me.  This is perfectly normal.”

Police, local and state governments need to get serious

Dear Sir,

At 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, I was driving home to Ajijic after visiting friends. I live in the heart of the village. As I turned down a local street, I saw a full-sized white pick-up truck in the middle of the road, blocking my way.  I slowed down and noticed a man standing next to the driver’s side door. He looked in my direction and then turned toward me. When he did I saw an automatic weapon in his hand.
