1)  Can't they just argue that Hanna is just a designate, and has no power to issue charters?

2)  I think this is kingdom building by UNMH - how about building a community health center with the money, and rent the LL rooms

3)  Sucks being Mayor or city council in RR - this is what happens when retirees have too much time on their hands, I guess...

4)  This is what happens when you don't play nice in elections, Susana

5)  Sunshine works!

6)  Lucky for UNM, there's a recession

7)  Maybe Hanna S can come up with an online abstinence education curriculum and show that online education works

8)  Will his commercials live on????

9)  If only their clothing wasn't so industrial (but maybe its signed)

One thing I never liked about Whitener's ads was the phrasing. There is no such thing as a "quick check". Checks are neither fast nor slow. They just exist. Now, you can have a check that was written or drafted QUICKLY, but that would make too much sense.
