Bikers Beware

Bikers Beware: City Plans to Balance Budget by Citing Bicyclists

After 5 years of making the arduous trek in my car to CNM’s WS campus, this summer I was transferred to Main Campus, an easy bike commute. To mark the occasion, I donated my piece of crap CO2 spewing Ford Escort to KUNM and became a biker.

Years ago the thought of giving up my car and relying on my bike was about as abhorrent an idea as listening to a born-again preacher ramble on about how much… Continue

All Politics are Local or relational....

Today, I will walk into an Elementary School and color in some circles in an attempt to actively participate in a right that has been hard to come by for some, if not all of us. This year is different though. This year I will be voting, not for who I think is best, or who I feel will lead better, but instead, I will be setting aside my fishing pole and pick up my wife's, casting it into the deep muddy waters of the political ocean.

Why people vote the way they do is as varied as the… Continue

A Malestrom of Mail

‘Tis the season of stunning fall foliage, calacas y calaveras, and incredible waste. I’m talking about the dead forest deposited in my mailbox daily. Campaign leaflets, postcards on cardstock, glossy 8 x 12 flyers and everything in between.

Last Friday, we received ten pieces of campaign mail, so I decided to take note of who got what in my household. We’ve got two last names and 3 voters; two males (one older, one younger) and moi in the… Continue

A referendum it ain't

I've heard several people recently say that they'll vote for Susana Martinez because Bill Richardson was a crook. I completely understand the urge to punish the Democratic Party for the sins of Bill, in the hope that it will motivate the Dems to find, nominate, and support candidates who are not ethically challenged in the way that some recent Dems have been. But that logic is flawed. 

Guilt by association is a bad basis for an important decision. While Denish stood with Richardson… Continue

Recovery Cat 10.30.2010

Psephology is the study of results and other statistics relating to elections (especially with a view to predicting future results)... When elections are called, politicians and their supporters attempt to influence policy by competing directly for the votes of constituents in what are called campaigns. Supporters for a campaign can be either formally organized or loosely affiliated, and frequently utilize campaign advertising. It is common for… Continue

The Empty Stage Filled Fast

If you walk into Popejoy Hall the morning before a show, you might be surprised to see a pretty empty stage. You’d probably wonder how we expect to have a show at all that night.

Loading in Cirque Mechanics’ Boom Town was pretty typical. At 10 in the morning, a crew of Popejoy stage hands began focussing lights. At 1, several more… Continue
