Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

I had a girlfriend accuse me once--long ago, when I was much worse at relationships--of being gone from ours long before we'd broken up. It was probably true. And while I've gotten better at being with another person, I have a confession to make: I'm doing it again. Bailing out before the iceberg's even struck. Exiting before the captain's turned off the Fasten Seatbelts sign. Ducking out before the curtain call.

It's true:… Continue

On (possibly) not being able to vote -

Every time I think about voting, I feel ill.

This isn't because I have anything against the candidates, the process, my status as a citizen, or the ultimate outcome. Quite the contrary, actually. All of these things are in place according to how I would wish them in a hypothetical world. Even more so, I'm enjoying history's unfolding every single day and staying informed.

I also did everything I was supposed to do. I went to vote for change dot com and filled out my… Continue

Is Albuquerque too big to be pro-America?

Unlike Sarah Palin, I like it big.

Big as in giant men on Harleys cruising down Route 66. Monster ATVs spraying sand at Montessa Park. Shooting ranges, duallys, and football stadium sized mega churches on the… Continue

Red Priest on Fire

This weekend I had a chance to attend two very different concerts in New Mexico, one in Santa Fe and the other in Albuquerque. The Albuquerque one, well to be honest, was one I produced for Chamber Music Albuquerque. And although it is sometimes difficult to really focus down on the performance when one has other responsibilities as a producer-presenter, I usually find a way. For the CMA concert it wasn't hard at all.

On Sunday as part of CMA's… Continue

I can vote. Twice!

I have a cousin who used to live on the westside. She lived here for 10 years. Two years ago her husband died and she moved back to NJ. Being a responsible voter, she registered to vote in her new location. A few weeks ago she complained to me, (we're from NJ...that's what we do), about the calls she is getting from candidates she assumed were in NM since they weren't people running in her neck of the refineries. After telling me their names I confirmed that they were indeed NM… Continue

In the Backseat with Martin Heinrich

The race for U.S. Congress in District 1 between Martin Heinrich and Darren White is neck and neck. Last Saturday I got a chance to shadow Heinrich as his campaign kicked off the Democrats' Early Voter drive.

NOB HILL--What a day: 3 counties, 8 stops, 11 hours, 251 miles. But it was such a pleasure to be with a candidate that was working harder than anyone around him! I left the campaign car at 7:30 PM. But the Heinrichs still had… Continue

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. This campaign has turned increasingly negative...especially White's TV spots which, aside from an initial bio, have been attacking Heinrich 100% of the time. They attack his integrity and character. 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
