What's going on, Albuquerque?
Wait: is anybody surprised Bourdain is both a dick AND wrong? He's made a career out of being both of those things.
Totally agree, Kenny! I'd be a lot less pissed off if the first things to be frozen were congressional pay and medical benefits. I thought it was interesting how the different congresscritters are choosing to deal with the shutdown in terms of furloughs, etc.
From the Las Cruces newspaper: "Human Services Secretary Sidonie Squier, the same person responsible for upending the state's mental-health care system and turning it over to providers from Arizona, responded to a draft report on hunger in the state by observing that, "Since there has never been and is not now any significant evidence of hunger in New Mexico, I would offer that the focus of the report should be on getting proper nutrition for children (and adults). The idea -- which is the easy way out -- that we should expand every government food program in existence is not productive, especially if the issue is nutrition and not hunger."
Translated: Let them eat more nutritious cake, at the end of the month, when the food stamps run out. And donors from Arizona give much more campaign cash to R's than donors from NM.
