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

Voters to Consider Regional Transit on November 4

Did you know the average New Mexico driver pays $7,823 each year in costs associated with owning a vehicle? What if you could dramatically cut your transportation costs? By keeping the New Mexico Rail Runner Express operating and establishing a regional transit system, many of us could cut transportation costs, keep money in our pocket, protect the… Continue

Upcoming Bond Issue A

General Obligation Bonds are voted for by the public, and paid for with increases in our property taxes. Bond Issue A is for Senior Citizen Facility Improvements. I am all for that since I think it is a good thing, and I will be a senior citizen sooner than I like to think. I downloaded the League of Women Voters of Central NM Voter'sGuide2008.pdf to sift through this years Ammendments and Bond… Continue

Harmonic Decay Album Review

Harmonic Decay - Self titled - released 2007

# of tracks: 6

Rating: **** 1/2 out of *****

I finally got a chance to sit down and listen to this album, given to me by Harmonic Decay's lead man Geoff well over six months ago, and I must say I really enjoyed it. The songs range from creepy ambient instrumentals (A Tainted World) to powerful compositions driven by Joanna Strange's vocals (A Living Dream). My only dislike is that I want more, with the CD only being six tracks. I… Continue

Oscillation 2008 Review

Oscillation 2008 came to a close this weekend, and left me with the usual feeling of some postpartum depression that usually comes with doing something huge and then seeing it finish up. While this was the most challenging Oscillation in years, it was also my favorite, I’d have to say.

I arrived at the Cell Theatre around 1 on friday, along with Markus, our sound master. I had already been to two Walmarts earlier, and been loading gear out into my car for the whole morning. Upon… Continue

Morning Fix: Quaint, Small, "Real"


Added by Somegye on October 15, 2008 at 5:30am — 1 Comment


So I called the magic number 311 and asked when the city picks up leaves and yard waste. "Twice a year". Huh?

Ok, in all fairness, I have heard this before, but I guess I was hoping the times had changed. "Let me look that up for you." Fingers crossed, I was hoping for an October pick-up, but November is ok. "The next pick up is scheduled for December."

Excuse me? I am pretty sure there is this season called Fall or's when the leaves fall off the trees. No offense,… Continue

Why Not 10 Days Ago?

I'm puzzled that this was announced today (Tues, 10/14). The trail was open 10 days ago (or more) and was very convenient for getting to Balloon Fiesta. Why wasn't it announced before Fiesta?

Trail now goes from UNM to Alameda Written by Nancy Tipton for the Albuquerque Journal, last updated Tuesday, October 14, 2008, at 12:01:43

Fiamma Fumana at the Cooperage

I had the pleasure Saturday night of attending an AMP concert at the Cooperage. The performing group was Fiamma Fumana from Italy. There music would be hard to label and that is a good thing. There cd loaded as Pop music and they seemed to have a world music flair. The instrumentation from the group was vocal, accordian, drums, bagpipe and dj. Occasionally the accordian player would play guitar and the bagpipe player would perform on Fife, there was constant wonderful vocal harmonies. The first… Continue
