    Interesting little twists to diplomatic immunity (though doesn't quite rise to the interest required for an ethics paper or answer the question whether the PDAs actually have to be attached to Mr Bush to have a “Blackberry Bush”). DI only holds when the country of employ of the diplomat allows it to continue, and apparently Mexico is withdrawing his job and immunity, at least that is the party line to us gringos:

    Mexican Embassy spokesman Ricardo Alday said Thursday he was asked to tender his resignation once he arrived back in Mexico City.
    "Mr. Quintero will be responsible for explaining his actions to the American authorities conducting an investigation. The Mexican Government deeply regrets this incident," he said.
