By Michael D. Shear and David S. Hilzenrath April 16, 2010
On Jan. 20, 2009, Barack Obama raised his hand and took the oath of office. It made him president, and it didn't hurt his book sales, either.
On Thursday, the White House posted online the 2009 tax return for the president and the first lady, offering a peek into the book royalty engine that continues to fuel their status as millionaires.

AP Exclusive: Sinaloa cartel wins Juarez turf war 

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico — After a two-year battle that has killed more than 5,000 people, Mexico's most powerful kingpin now controls the coveted trafficking routes through Ciudad Juarez. That conclusion by U.S. intelligence adds to evidence that Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's Sinaloa cartel is winning Mexico's drug war.
The assessment was made based on information from confidential informants with direct ties to Mexican drug gangs and other intelligence, said a U.S. federal agent who sometimes works undercover, insisting on anonymity because of his role in ongoing drug investigations.

 El Semanario SIN LIMITES
El Mayo, Operación Maquillaje
8 Abril, 2010, por Delia Estévez
La insólita entrevista que Ismael El Mayo Zambada concedió a Proceso anuncia el inicio de una campaña de relaciones públicas a través de la cual el cártel de Sinaloa buscaría maquillar su imagen con intenciones de posicionarse ante la eventualidad de una negociación política con Felipe Calderón. Después de todo, voceros del Presidente han admitido que la organización que comanda El Chapo Guzmán, aliado de El Mayo, es demasiado poderosa como para confrontarla con fuego. “Es lo mismo que hicieron los colombianos través de los medios, decir que son seres humanos y no monstruos, que se puede hablar con ellos, que también sienten miedo y sufren por sus hijos. Buscaban ablandar a la opinión pública y cambiar la manera en que eran vistos, especialmente cuando estaban en plan de negociar con el gobierno”, dice Douglas Farah, quien como corresponsal de The Washington Post en Colombia en los años 90 cubrió el auge y caída del cártel  de Medellín y su líder Pablo Escobar.
