Since when is flu the illness spelled like the flue in a chimney? Shame on you KRQE/AP! This, and the typo-ridden petition - makes me weep.

Kelly, since I've been doing the Morning Fix again, I'm astounded at the number of typos on KRQE, KOAT AND KOB news websites.  KOB is by far the worst!

State Fair:  Will Chicharron be washed and dry-cleaned? Or stuck in the flue with the others swine? Will the Journal finally cover the state fair queen and Junior Livestock Show farm and ranch features with a reporter on site? And isn't it true that TV reporters seldom know how to spell, because they are orally-oriented?

So Trudy Jones says she doesn't want to see the minimum wage law on the Nov. 6 ballot, because it might be challenged and  she "Would hate to spend the money and make that happen, when we could do it correctly the first time." Her solution is to definitely spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a special election. Notice she doesn't provide any details to substantiate her claim that "the whole petition was flawed."

Seems like some politicians are fearful a higher voter turnout could result in approval of a higher minimum wage. Which is just plain stupid if you actually care about all segments of the economy. More money in the pockets of the lowest earners turns into more money being spent at businesses in the area. When people at the bottom of the earnings spectrum have more income, they spend it, rather than banking it as people at the top of the earnings spectrum do. Hopefully the judge will allow the issue to appear on the Nov 6 ballot.

Unfortunately, the judge rejected putting it on the Nov. 6 General Election ballot.  And even worse, she says the whole thing is invalid because the proposition does more than one thing: "i.e. voters would have to decide with one answer whether to raise the minimum wage, establish a cost-of-living adjustment annually and change the treatment of tipped employees."
