Morning Fix: South of the Border

  • More on the City Council "takeover." I think Councilor Peña is probably right that there might have been more constructive ways of getting a message across. But I don't think shutting things down and making arrests is an answer either. Also: terrible comments, even for the TV News…

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

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
