UPDATED: Taco-eater Wonkette dissin' us all over the place

2/7/08 UPDATE: POOF! It's gone. Wonkette becomes most annoying website on earth and biggest fraud since evolution by deleting shameful bullying story about Nuevo Mexico. Did Journal sue for its removal? Does Brian Colón's strong arm reach to D.C.?

"There is much tension in Mexico, the New one. According…

Morning Fix: Nothing To See Here

looming water crisis part 2, or what to do now...

Okay, so here’s the thing, water issues in New Mexico are incredibly complicated and

frustrating. That is the result of a lot of different factors -- including the

region’s aridity, how water rights are administered, insane development, and yes, a complete lack of political will to get anything

done. (I think that in the string of comments in the last post, someone pointed out how last year's legislative session was supposed to be "the year of… Continue

One Small Step

For whatever reason, I'm still irritated by the whole Jessica Alba comment. So I'm hoping this post will help put my frustrations at ease.

Back in the day, when I was much younger :), my choices of dining out included places like Chili's, Applebees, Bennigans, you know, the regular chains where servers have pieces of flare. Hell, my first job was at Black Eyed Pea and the second was at Applebees. So I've spent a good many years supporting chain restaurants, but now I say no more of…

Out Sick!

Well, it was bound to happen. Between working lots of extra hours at my new job and then getting very sick, I don't have a post! Although I have many stories waiting to be written, they all require research that I haven't gotten to yet.

So to make up for not having a post this week, I have a little gem on my page for your viewing pleasure. I'll be back in a couple of…

Backroom Budget and TIDD Bills

The New Mexico Legislature's Senate Finance Committee members showed true colors this week. They axed half a million from the Energy and Minerals Department budget in order to disable enforcement of environmental laws. Nice shade of industry hack with highlights of


Here's more 'bout it from Kate Nash. Today's…

Super Tuesday

I'm not gonna call shenanigans yet, but the past two weeks have been pretty crazy. Who here hasn't gotten 10 calls from Hillary this last week? This morning, I'm home with the ill child, the phone rings... Hillary campaign. Again. So the guy starts in on his shtick, and as I try and politely tell him I have heard it already the call waiting beep sounds. Probably my wife or the doctor I think to myself, and half panic cause I'm a tard with this particular phone and… Continue

Doing my Civic Duty...

So I made it to the Taylor Ranch Community Center at 12:05 today to cast my ballot. Yes, they were voting at the middle school walking distance from my house, but for some reason it made more sense to send me on a 12 minute drive to Taylor Ranch.

I parked my car and scurried inside the community center. I waited in line… some clever Udall staffer was getting signatures for his race. I signed the… Continue

SN*Wtography Contest

I moved back to Albuquerque after spending several years in the northern Rockies, and it was partly because I get pretty tired there of moving snow – shoveling it, snow blowing it, even snow plowing it – it could be fun for a while, but those times when you had to deal with it nonstop for a day or three became just too much.

I still like to play in snow, though, and I…

I'll take a grande extra hot no foam cup of democracy please!


Happy Demo-Caucus Day! Hope everyone has a good day exercising their right to vote!

And, if you don't know where to go - the NM Democratic Party site is much more helpful than the Berno county site.

and if you want more info on what the NM Republican Party is doing - their site is pretty helpful too!

Morning Fix: Complications

Yo soy un burqueno!

I'm currently sitting in the Satellite Coffee shop here on the East end of Nob Hill, watching the sunlight stream through the front windows and sipping my coffee. We actually made it! The hold-up at the OR-CA border was the only one of the trip, and we raced down 99 and I-40 through Cali and Northern Arizona to make it into Albuquerque by 2pm on Saturday. We're still waiting for our stuff to arrive and Comcast to show up for installation, but the dogs have started to settle in nicely. The wife… Continue

The Alfalfa Chronicles

Albuquerque is blessed to be located in a fertile river valley – the only fertile river valley for hundreds of miles around. But agriculture here has its detractors – especially when it comes to the topic of water use.

A conversation the other night was typical and led inexorably to comparing water for agriculture, especially evil alfalfa, to water for urban uses, like our hero the microchip.…

looming water crisis

I generally try to restrict environmental obsessions to posts on my blog, but I can't pass up the opportunity to point this news story out to anyone who cares about the future of Albuquerque and New Mexico.

Here's an excerpt from a Reuters story, titled, "Scientists see looming water…
