"I thought I might hear from you.  So, my question, if the County adopts voter initiative, could it backfire and essentially be "controlled" by City voters?  Urbanization of the County should occur within the City, but we know…"

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.

How The Right Wing In ABQ Screwed It Up.

Posted on August 16, 2016 at 10:30am 7 Comments

NOB HILL, Albuquerque—Sometimes here under the enchanted skies of New Mexico, we seem pretty far removed from the issues of working people.  Organized labor has felt this and is under constant attack from many sides, including lobbying groups such as the Rio Grande Foundation.

Yesterday afternoon, while…


Bugging Out: 3 Of America’s 20 World Heritage Sites Are In New Mexico! Here’s Aztec Ruins.

Posted on July 26, 2016 at 10:30am 1 Comment

NOB HILL--UNESCO World Heritage Sites are outstanding national and cultural features that the whole world has deemed as meriting extraordinary admiration and protection.  Only twenty World Heritage Sites are in the United States.  Of those, New Mexico has three of them:  Carlsbad Caverns National Park, Taos…


Hey Michael Riordan, It's Not Working!

TULANE & LEAD SE—You can’t tell me that everything is hunky-dory with the traffic in southeast Albuquerque.  And I’m not even talking about Central Ave. and the much maligned A.R.T. system.

I’m talking about the Lead/Coal/Zuni corridor.  Reducing traffic lanes from three to two in each direction and adding…


Touring New Mexico: A New Trailer, Santa Rosa Lake

Posted on June 21, 2016 at 10:30am 2 Comments

NOB HILL—A couple months ago, my wife and I bought a small travel trailer.  Though new, its style harkens back to the days of the so-called “canned ham” trailers.  It was an impulse buy to be sure.  What one thinks about when signing the check is a dreamscape of soft breezes, quiet woodland settings, mountain…


How About A Route 66 State Park for East Central?

Posted on June 14, 2016 at 10:30am 6 Comments

CENTRAL AVE. & EUBANK—One of the more distinctive things about Albuquerque is that everybody has an idea of what the city needs in order to make it a better place.  We don’t want somebody else planning our part of town, we want to do it.  If you don’t believe it, just look at the number of anti-A.R.T. signs up…

Happy belated birthday.  It's pleasurable to be able to get a Tierra de los Encantados fix electronically.  Heather tells me that a NM chile fix is on the way via a homesick New Mexican returning to NashVegas. 

Interesting fact:  Nashville is ranked number 2 in the country for bachelor and bachelorette parties, trailing only Las Vegas—as in Nevada, not NM.

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.
