• Man accidentally shoots 6 at UNMH; has concealed carry permit for his gun.
  • How many Superfund sites in Albuquerque could benefit from this proposed federal tax? Can you name them? Do you live near one?
  • Dozens of snakes seized from home. Could this be the start of a temporary solution for the recent mouse infestations?
  • Albuquerque hang gliding landing area park is named for former New Mexican astronaut and U.S. Senator Harrison "Jack" Schmitt. Check out this classic photo of Schmitt on the moon.
  • Longing for more civility and collaboration in politics? Listen to bipartisan views at tonight's Town Hall at the National Hispanic Culture Center in Barelas. It is sponsored by New Mexico First, a nonpartisan organization that focuses on finding solutions for New Mexico.
  • Speaking of civility, it is good that gubernatorial candidate Susana Martinez disciplined an employee for inappropriate use of government resources. The employee, a prosecutor, forwarded an email that advocates killing Mexicans and Arabs. I'm still hoping Martinez herself makes a statement about the incivility of the email content.
  • The North American Monsoon has arrived, bringing us cooler summer nights. Geek out with NOAA Albuquerque monsoon stats!
  • Last but not least: Tamarind Institute (pictured above), Albuquerque's venerable and internationally famous fine art lithography center at UNM, opens its brand new building on July 1, its 50 year anniversary. Ribbon cutting at 11 am; open house starts at noon - make plans to stop by tomorrow during your lunch break!

“I kind of feel sorry for the guy but then again I don't because it was stupid.” If I had a nickel...

It's spelled, "Susana", as in susanamartinez.com. Interesting that her main page defaults to a big graphic announcement touting her being endorsed by Sarah Palin. Because that's what's best for New Mexican Citizens, a Governor who is thought highly of by Sarah Palin. The issues and stances be damned. I want someone who Sarah Palin approves of. That'll put the state on good footing.

So, I worked in that building back in the dark ages when I was a freshman in college. At that time, it was called the Technology Application Center and was a division of NASA. They did landsat surveys, sold space pictures and compiled bibliographies of all the alternative energy research that was going on in the world. We would send out these bibliographies quarterly to subscribers all over the world. Wonder what happened to all that alternative energy research....oh, yeah, right....REAGAN.

Ha! I just clicked on my link and it's not the same thing that happens when one clicks from Google. The very first option when someone Googles "Susana Martinez" (or any other spelling aberration) is "susanamartinez.com" and that converts to this. Too funny the way the interwebs work.

Oof! Thanks for the correction, Masshole. I've fixed it now.

I think the emailer is a she? The pdf on Democracy for NM indicates her name is Lisa Kuykendall.

Sophie - I will pay you big bucks from my DCf salary if you bring horchata to Barelas as part of your aimless driving route!

Between the gun debate and the Tanoan musings, our site has been totally commandeered... i'm too busy at work and home to post my weekly post, but i have to find a soothing video or something to break the spell.
