Heinrich Launches New Website...Highlights Bush-White Connection

NOB HILL--Martin Heinrich's new website gives plenty of ammo to those wanting to put a few chinks in the armor of his opponent, Bernalillo County's Republican sheriff, Darren White.

They lie about taxes. They even… Continue

(Gus) Wagner's (Farm) -- the current Center of My Life

Growing up, the fall lineup of family activities included the occasional trip out to Gus Wagner's to buy squash, corn, and (if I remember) apple cider. As a kid, I hated doing things with my family, so I hated Gus Wagner's.

But now that I'm a grownup (bonk, bonk on the head! bonk-bonk! bonk-bonk!), and these days I work in Corrales about half a mile from there. Gus Wagner's, now just called Wagner's Family Farm (I believe Gus has long since passed away), is… Continue

An Open Letter on the Wisdom of Imprisoning Errant Shopping Carts

To the person at the Albuquerque Target on Eubank that didn't corral their shopping cart:

ARRRRRRRGH! In a city as windy as this one you couldn't be bothered to haul your cart five feet to its cozy little cart corral home? And instead you left it to its own devices? Of course, being the delinquent shopping card that it was, it made a beeline for the side of my car? And there I found it, bumped up against the side of my vehicle, proudly… Continue

Comcast Complaint

I am soooo upset with Comcast I could scream!!!! It all started when I got home phone service, I never had a single problem with my service until then. Since I got home phone service I have been without phone service and/or without internet service so many times I don’t even remember. Whenever you call customer service they always, always, always tell me that there is a problem with my modem and a technician will have to come out and replace the modem. Of course when the technician does come… Continue

Growing Up Purple

I’m looking forward to voting this week. One of my earliest childhood memories is of walking down the street on Election Day with both of my parents and my younger brother, whose toddler exuberance was constrained with a baby blue leash child harness.

It was rare that we’d walk somewhere together as a family of four. Most of our family outings involved getting in the car and… Continue

This article is cross-posted at Desert of the Real Economic Analysis.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: The Author often cracks wise that "he has forgotten more about healthcare economics than most people will ever know" (That is not necessarily self-aggrandizement as the Author is an exceedingly forgetful person.)

John McCain (his wildly erratic conduct aside) attempts to cast himself as the stable, rock-ribbed choice for… Continue
