1994: Where were you the night that Luis Donaldo Colosio was killed?


On this day in 1994, I left a Toastmasters meeting and got the news from the radio:
"Luis Donaldo Colosio, Mexico’s ruling party’s presidential candidate, is gunned down during a campaign rally in the northern border town of Tijuana."
It was quite a shock, to say the least.

Colosio was replaced by Ernesto Zedillo, who turned out to be a rather responsible president.  

Nevertheless, Colosio inspired a lot of people with his talk about reform and ending corruption.
