Morning Fix: ...

MFer tips us to Scholes Hall Watch, a blog poised to get to the bottom of stuff at UNM. They need your help in the following area:
"UNM has lost faculty at a rate not seen since the mid-1990s yet no one seems to keep track of the resignations and what these have cost the university in terms of research dollars, student credit hours, contribution to core programs, such as Native American Studies, Southwest Studies, Latin American Studies, the sciences, and UNM's national and international reputation."

It seriously ticks me off that hiking is prohibited! How is hiking going to cause a fire? Most hikers I know don't smoke and if they do, they're smart enough to NOT smoke in the mountains! I'm so sick of being penalized from doing things because of stupid people!

obts,
Yeah, I know, the pinheads are irritating! I definitely don't want the Sandias going up in flames, I just want to go on my twice weekly hikes! The responsible people should be able to get some type of permit to hike anyway, don't you think? You say go up north, where exactly do you mean?

Oh well, I guess I'll pray for rain, or do a raindance or something. Come on rain!!!! :) I wonder if yesterday's cloudburst had any effect on conditions.

More than worrying about people who would start a fire, the Forestry folks want to make sure that, in the event that a fire spreads, they don't have to worry about any hikers stranded in the middle of a fire. Evacuations are risky and expensive. An ounce of prevention...

The other reason that the closure includes everyone is that if a fire does start getting people out is one less thing to worry about.
I agree that most people are responsible but one moron is all it takes.

Now, If I could only get a government agency to ban me from sitting on my couch in front of my TV . . .
