Mexico coach Javier Aguirre wants only positive thoughts going into Tuesday's match with Uruguay. "If we go out there thinking that we can lose the game, fearful and full of doubt, then we're inviting the loss or we're doubting ourselves," he said. "I've impressed on my players that we have to go out there intending to win." A win would not only qualify Mexico for the second round but make its route to the quarterfinals much easier, facing either South Korea or Greece in the knockout round.

Regarding your editorial about unaccompanied children from Central America illegally crossing our borders, what's wrong with them stopping and settling in Mexico? ( "Death by deportation," Aug. 24). Central and South Americans (and there are lots of them) are passing through Mexico anyway to get up here and they already speak Spanish in Mexico, so why don't they remain there instead continuing on to the U.S.? Mexico is a big country and not completely crime-ridden by any means.

What now shall Mexico say, as Mexican kills Mexican? Since Independence in the 19th century, Mexico has imagined the threat to herself as a threat from without. Deep in Mexico's memory, Mexico imagines her true self as Indian, an Aztec virgin put upon by the grizzled Spaniard, Cortez.The year is still young and already there is plentiful evidence that Mexico is imploding. Mexican is killing Mexican. In January, Mexican Indians in Chiapas took arms against Mexico City, embarrassing the government of Carlos Salinas de Gortari, forcing him to play the role of Cortez.

What do you do when the small speedboat you're using to escape illegally from Cuba runs out of fuel partway through the Gulf of Mexico? The vessel rocks uncomfortably atop large waves. You haven't eaten in days. You know what could happen if you're caught. You fear the worst. "The first thought was, 'Wow, I went through so much just to die on the edge,'" Dariel Alvarez, 25, recalled recently in Spanish. "I was scared to come so far and fall short. " Two years later, the Triple-A Norfolk outfielder is one of the Orioles' rising position prospects, combining a steady glove in the outfield with an electrifying plate presence.

About 40,000 U.S. troops will be returning from Iraq this year. Why not put those who can't find jobs on their return to work patrolling our 1,969-mile border with Mexico? They might not be able to patrol the entire length. However, they could watch the areas where illegals and drugs are known to cross over or tunnel under the border. This would serve two purposes. It would keep the military employed and ready for future problems and it would protect the United States in its quest to stem the tide of illegal drugs and people entering our country.

Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez said he decided he won't pitch for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. “It was a tough decision because obviously I wanted to represent Mexico, but you always have to think about what's going to happen in the long run,” Gonzalez told reporters on Thursday during the Orioles' minicamp. “I think it's more important for me to be with the team.” Gonzalez, 28, rose from being a minor league free agent to becoming one of the Orioles' most dependable starters late in the season.

Yesterday in one sentence: Jack Bauer narrated the introductions and Clint Dempsey scored and I was very happy, very quickly but slowly realized that America would not score again, then buried my head in my hands after the Ghana goal and peaked through my fingers to see John Brooks prove me wrong and ensure that America can still win the World Cup; Germany is pretty good though.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Right-handed pitcher Alfredo Aceves left Orioles camp following Friday's workout so he could travel back to Mexico to obtain his work visa. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he is prepared for Aceves to be gone a week, but he's been told that the process could take just five to six days. Since Aceves pitched in the Mexican Pacific League and late in the Caribbean Series for Mexico in the offseason, Showalter said he isn't worried that Aceves will fall behind.

The murder of Mexican presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio in Tijuana, within sight of the U.S. border, is a cruel blow at Mexico's stability and the hope of prosperity for its people. Or so the crime was meant to be. In all likelihood, Mexico's political order and progress toward democracy will proceed apace, along with its economic integration in North America.With the hit men in custody, Mexican police should soon be able to say why the crime was committed and for whom. Until this information is made public with credibility, any conjecture is fantasy.

Oh, please. Don't call the tsunami of unaccompanied, undocumented migrants a "refugee crisis" ( "America's refugee crisis," July 9). If it were, they'd still be in Mexico. When populations flee, they seek refuge in the adjacent countries, they don't travel endless miles to a distant destination. Labeling those illegally crossing our border "refugees" is just a euphemism to soften the disaster facing this nation. I find it incredible that Mexico is never mentioned in connection with the surge.

Yesterday in one sentence: The nation of Brazil let out the world's largest sigh of relief after a win in penalties against Chile, and Uruguay proved (wait for it) toothless in attack when held up against Colombia and its star forward James Rodriguez. What's on tap: Netherlands vs. Mexico, 12 p.m., ABC; Costa Rica vs. Greece, 4 p.m., ABC. What you'll see: If Saturday was decidedly South American, here's to a Sunday that is decidedly CONCACAF-y. Along with the United States, a record three teams from the North and Central American federation advanced to the knockout rounds, with Mexico and Costa Rica fighting to move on today.

Considered a threat to crops and human health, it was captured - and the mint destroyed. An entomologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed the Philomycidae slug was a "new pest" for the region, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said Friday.

When Mark and I got engaged, I had no idea what I wanted to do for a wedding. All I knew was that we didn't have much money and we wanted to go some place beautiful. Initially, I had wanted a few close friends to be there with me to witness the special day, but deciding on exactly who that would be proved to be an extremely challenging task, and he wanted to go off somewhere, just the two of us. As far as family went, my parents have both passed away and his had just started the process of divorce, so after giving it some more thought, I realized that the two of us going off alone together to get married might actually be the most romantic and perfect option.
