Hanging Chicos?

With the crazy stuff in Lebanon going on right now, North Korea going completely haywire, Fidel Castro's slow Chretien/Klein-like fall from power, and everything else tying up the summer, I for some reason woke up this morning with the question on my mind:

Er, what the hell happened with the Mexican election dispute? (I briefly blogged about it one month ago today)

The answer, from what I've been able to piece together from Google News, is that things are still fairly unstable and might get worse.

Here are a few of the Google News headlines on the topic from the past couple days:
