Maybe someone should call Steve Pearce's office and ask him why he is letting NM children starve to death.

That bus driver should drive the shuttle bus at next year's gay pride parade and if there is no such shuttle service, he should set one up and work a full shift without pay. This, for starters.

Also, as an add-on to the starving children of NM, gratis the GOP House, I notice on Joe Monahan's blog that the Koch brothers and Paul Ryan commandeered Tamaya to meet with Susana.  What, are they coming up with ways to further impoverish NM?  The last thing this state needs is the "wisdom" of the Koch brothers (motto:  everything is ours, OURS) and Paul Ryan (motto:  I've always lived off the government, but you cannot).  Gah.

I should've known better than to read the comments on the food stamps article.  Hard to believe people have the gall to deny children access to a meal - especially when food stamps are already so meager.

Re: Anasazi, we walked passed it this weekend on our way to Summerfest (Yay Ozomatli!) and were really pleased with the work that's been done on the exterior.  The glass tile on the walls of the ground floor look really snazzy.  Glad to see some life is being breathed back into that building.

Re:  Big Plans.  So, is it "high end office type jobs" or is it low end jobs in high end retail stores?  There seems to be some double talk here.  Seems like a prime location for the next westside WalMart.
