#1 could be a wish ... instead of reality. but if Guzman really did die - does that reduce the violence in Mexico? it might get worse, because Chapo exerts some control over one of the major cartels. after his death, whenever it happens, the ensuing chaos could unleash more murders.

#2 I think the aftermath the death of of El Chapo will make the bloody year of 2010 look like a quinceañera.
#3 well ... good news is that the period of "ex-Chapo bloodletting" is still somewhere in the future. It turns out that Chapo is NOT dead, and the rumor was wrong. Who knows - maybe he was just out watching a movie? His time will come - just not today.
