Mexicans Warding off Evil?

 Jason Beaubien of NPR has a story about the Mexican people seeking charms/potions etc. to ward off evil in these difficult times (eg the drug war).  A snippet said, “At the Sonora Market in Mexico City, statues of Christian icons are displayed for sale next to Day of the Dead figures and narco-saints. Increasingly, Mexicans are turning to amulets and figurines amid the country’s brutal drug war and languishing economy.”

Check out that article here, on the Day of the Dead of all days.
