Mexico chides Rice for political remarks
MEXICO CITY - Mexico said Wednesday that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was out of line by suggesting that its democracy was just now maturing, saying it wasn‘t up to her to voice such opinions publicly.
"Mexico has come through this crisis and I think it‘s been a real vote of confidence in the Mexican democratic system, which after all, is relatively — it‘s just now maturing in a kind of two-party system," Rice said.

The petite young woman was a 16-year-old Laurel High School student three years ago when she decided to skip classes one day to join two other girls at a party at a Hyattsville apartment.
At the party, she said, Oscar Ramos "Casper" Velasquez took her into a bedroom, where he kissed her and told her that if she didn't have sex with him, as many as 15 other teenagers and young men at the gathering would have sex with her.
When she resisted, two more young men entered the room, the woman told jurors yesterday in federal court. One man threw her on the bed and choked her, the other held down her arms and "Oscar pulled out a gun," she testified.
"He put it to my head, and he said if I didn't shut up, he was going to kill me," the woman told jurors.
Eight men raped her, the 19-year-old woman said. Two assaulted her simultaneously. Outside the room, she said, she heard one man say, "Five minutes each." [snip]
