"Yes, Albuquerque needs expanded transit routes and schedules throughout the city. ABQRide recognizes this, but the problem is that the feds only award money for "sexy" projects like the ART. Seriously. If ABQRide could use the fed funds…"

"You can blame lack of leadership for not improving transit across the city, but you would only be partially correct. There has been no pressure from citizens for better transit. I have rarely heard transit ever brought up at city council meetings…"

""What problem is the ART going to solve?" I think that more ordinary bus service would solve the problem of "I got there a few minutes before six but the lot was already full. Dozens of cars were going around the block looking…"

About Me:
My real name is Jon Knudsen. Unfortunately "Jon Knudsen" is both hard to pronounce and to remember. Also, Johnny _Mango seems to be a braver person than Jon Knudsen. And better looking. Maybe that's why Jon's GF MaryAnn calls him "Johnny" most of the time.

Report From the Pat Davis ART Meeting: Start Late, Blah Blah Blah, End Early

Posted on February 4, 2016 at 12:00am 13 Comments

NOB HILL—A couple hundred people showed up last night to discuss their concerns about the pending Albuquerque Rapid Transit project.  From the look of the negative signs on various businesses along the street, I was sure it would be a lively meeting.  Most said something like, “NO ART!”

The meeting was well…

NOB HILL—Yesterday I went to Monte Vista Elementary School.  I haven’t taught there for over 15 years, but still it was a pretty emotional experience.  And today, of course, is our school bond election.

But what is a school?  There is something about a school that cannot be captured in statistical…

NOB HILL—We know this is going to be a year constantly defined in the media.  I don’t even want to imagine all the evil that will be assaulting us via the newspapers, TV, and Facebook.

There are pictures I refuse to look at; people I can’t listen to without anger and words I refuse to read or write…

Thanks for your blog about the backwardness of UNM when it comes to education and funding. :) On another note, many profs at UNM have little slips of paper that say, "I make ___ days of the football coach's salary to educate the students at UNM." Generally in the 20's or below...

Thanks Johnny. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I go 'home' and vist the Roswell Museum and Art Center. Being from there, I've always been a Peter Hurd fan and it's nice to see more art in Roswell outside of the alien murals!

Hey John. Great to hear from you! I am glad you contacted me. I just changed jobs and am staying a lot more local to town after 4 years of pretty constant travel. I am a member a local computer user group that will meet on DukeCityFix so I figured I would join, but did not expect to immediately find a few blasts from my past. Good times! I still have many fond memories of "Roach City" and Monte Vista...

I looked over you blog from your cycling trip. That looked awesome.

Wow, Jon. It was so good to see you with Doris. Your house looks wonderful. It looks like you. Take care. I hope to see you soon. Hopefully, I will have a good year. One never quite knows at Mental Vista given its cast of characters. Carri is working as an events organizer for Richard Romero. Love, Holly
