The big question that observers have been curious about is whether, given the porous nature of the Mexican-United States border and the narcogangs’ extensive ties to the U.S. underworld, violence could spread into El Norte on a mass scale. There have already been isolated attacks in Arizona and Texas, and an American consular worker was the subject of an attempted hit from the Sinaloa cartel. Ironically enough, Mexican narcogangs appear to be a greater threat to American homeland security than the Middle Eastern terrorists who dominate the popular discourse.

Let’s say you’ve written a word that starts with “a” but you’re unsure whether to use a space. Change “a something” to “two somethings.” If it makes sense, you need a space. So, if your sentence is “I heard a buzz in my ear,” change it to “I heard two buzzes in my ear.” That makes sense, so you need a space in “a buzz.” How about this—“I took apart the toy”? It wouldn’t make sense to write “I took two parts the toy.” Therefore, no space.

"A Hold" or "Ahold"?
