Grenades at Goodwill? Yikes. on another note, the Hot-Air link isn't working.

anti-immigrant sentiment everywhere i look. it's all over. there is no escaping it. richard rodriquez wrote something to the effect that "once the walls are built to keep the others out, then the question becomes who has the right to stay within the walls." that's where we're at as a nation right now. meanwhile, the Palin-embraced republican candidate for governor is leading in the polls and latino democrats are crossing party lines to support her because she has a spanish surname. dark times are here, darker times are ahead. wonder what dick berry and his buddies have up their sleeves for the rest of us once they have a governor who thinks just like them?

Sandia Peak has a bike run that operates during the summer - you can rent a mountain bike (trash theirs, not yours) and ride up and down the ski area all day. Great, cool fun thing to do during the summer. I'm glad to see Angel Fire do the same, but with more adrenaline rush things tossed in.
Lights - yeah, I'm guilty of leaving fluorescent lamps on a lot longer than incandescent's - my porch light is on the entire night, stuff like that. But I reason that actually turning on/off of these bulbs shortens the life of them, (most bulbs, really), so its better to leave them on until you really don't need them on. Commercial buildings have sensors to prevent this rationalization.

There's also the advice from programs like Neighborhood Watch that you *should* leave your porch light on all night to deter criminals. This is a potential conflict with night sky friendly lighting, I know...

My apartment building (Silver Gardens, along with 500 2nd Street) offers "green living" classes. Pretty Cool. And Richard, a better link is forthcoming tomorrow. This one I posted as the info startled me, but tomorrow's is more humane...
