If you've ever ridden a train in or out of Albuquerque, you've seen the sad state of the cramped, worn-out Amtrak station down on 1st Street.

NOB HILL--Something happened yesterday afternoon. I thought I owed it to myself to watch Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Barack Obama, and Obama’s speech in response. After all, every news commentator on TV was talking about the event. Well, it brought tears to my eyes.
