I don't think the grocery store idea is such a good idea anymore. Especially, since this project was mentioned in a previous morning fix. I-40 and 12th is in very close proximity to the downtown area and it mentions that they are already in negotiations with a natural foods grocery store.

I think another grocery store on the proposed site about the size of the remodeled Lowe's at 12th and Lomas would really be great for downtown Albuquerque. Hope it happens.

"We have to question the culture and try to determine the value of what we have created or have had forced onto us.  Think about it."

You can "think about it" all you like, but your mental exertion is unlikely to actually help improve the lives of NM children. Early childhood education is a functional tool for helping kids who, for whatever reasons, are starting from a deficit in our society. It's easy to take the position that children suffer because of the moral and social failings of the adults in their lives. But what are we going to do about it? Preschool, Headstart, early childhood education--these are all programs that society can implement, through the vehicle of government, to actually help kids catch up with peers from more stable or enriched environments. You won't get far clamoring for positive role models in the future unless you start helping today's kids.

What you have to remember is that throwing money at the problem is not the answer. Children across this country, not just NM, are being deprived of a quality education because education has become a political issue just like healthcare and firearms. We spend more money per capita than any other country on education but our math and science scores continue to fall when compared to other countries. This is a dis-service to our children and ourselves as a society. We just can't sugar coat this anymore. We are an unhealthy nation and we are becoming more stupid by the generation because we cannot successfully educate our children.
