The UNM Press story is sort of reminiscent of NMSO's problems.  Almost 1/2 of the Press deficit is the "rent" they pay to UNM.   I wonder if all the sports teams cover their rent?

Your headline on the PTSD/medical cannabis petition is majorly wrong. The interim director of the state's program has not, to my knowledge, taken any position on this bogus petition by a UNM professor or on anything related to PTSD's inclusion in the state's program. The petition has yet to be considered by the board governing the program and hopefully will be defeated. Thousands of New Mexicans would directly suffer as a result. If you're going to summarize the news, please do it correctly. Can you correct the headline?

Don, my apologies. You are correct. I've corrected the attribution in the headline. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

The UNM Press story is a major example of our "educational" priorities in America.  Billions for football...cake sales for books.

The sequel to UNM President William Davis' UNM Press book, "Miracle on the Mesa" is going to have to be named "Disaster in the Desert." Of course, Oklahoma University Press will have to print it..Has anyone counted the amount of money spent to get rid of basketball and football coaches since Year 2000.

It's interesting to see the "How to Publish Your Book Professionally Ad" by Universe that has cropped up on top of this blog.
