Shelf deporting?

It appears that sleepy Fort Stockton, far, far, far West Texas was the center of a sophisticated smuggling ring, the bulk of the 4000 Pr-Colombian artifacts stolen from over the last few years from Mexican museums and archeological sites having turned up there. Geeze, I guess down at the Presidio border crossing, no one thought to look for anything other than drugs … although occasionally they do catch someone carrying in a live chicken.

    Interesting article. It is unfortunate that over the last decade,
    the travel industry has had to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu virus, swine flu, as well as the first
    ever true global economic depression. Through everything the industry has proven to be strong,
    resilient as well as dynamic, obtaining new ways to deal with hardship.
    There are often fresh troubles and chance to which the marketplace must all over again adapt and react.
