• Weather balloons, lens flares....they'll say just about anything to debunk the fact that UFOs just dig New Mexico.

• Turtle shoppers attacked, taken hostage by employees at Duke City pet store. We "ferret" out the story here.

• Volcano Vista students suspended for making, selling fake parking permits.

• Good news: Home prices in New Mexico were up in August. Bad news: As usual, we trail the rest of the USA.

• Who flies to Clovis anyway? Aviation committee there disses Duke City for Denver.

• After summer brouhaha, local food vendors still in the majority at Balloon Fiesta. Here's the full list.

• Your better, faster, smarter cellphone may someday owe its success to nanscience research being done today at UNM.

• Got an opinion about UNM's proposed new hospital? Don't miss your opportunity to speak up at public Town Hall meetings this week and next.

Having read only your teasers, my comment would be that (1) year in and year out, UFO's do more for the New Mexico economy than weather balloons, (2)  UNM can't even keep a football team running, much less a hospital; (3) An out-of-town vendor would have a hard time making a living in competition with New Mexico red and green vendors, already at mid-season form after the State Fair; and (4) Volcano Vista students are really creative and are following the lead of American businesses everywhere, especially those connected with the puro derecho U.S. Chamber of Commerce. -- Izquierdo.

"You make an innuendo that I don't agree with, that is there is something inherently immoral or unjust about business, the Chamber of Commerce and America indirectly."

 

Oh, that is exactly what he is saying.

I agree Aaron. I just recognize his MO. IIRC, he had made several comments about the chamber. All derogatory.
