• One of the five worst!
  • But Skandera thinks kids will do better on next year's new, more difficult test, because.....actually, who the hell know what she's basing that on. Certainly not evidence.
  • And what are we preparing students for anyway?
  • Maybe seasonal repair jobs if the monsoons continue....
  • Too much rain can be a problem elsewhere in the state and on people's plates.
  • A different kind of green is on the minds of legislators, near and far.

Well, you didn't link to the story that Susana and her rocket scientist of a Human Services Dept. sec'y have decided to force adults who get food stamps to work before they get their food stamps.  WORK WHERE?????  The economy in NM has steadily gotten worse and we are sloughing jobs like a snake sheds its skin.  What on earth is Susana thinking?  Is it that important to her to punish people for being poor in the poorest state in the nation?  And then we've got rocket scientist Skandera who keeps proclaiming her methods are working despite all evidence to the contrary.  Gah.

I wish I were an octopus so I could slap eight people in Susana's administration at once.

Easy there, OBTS.  Between Sandia, Los Alamos, and KAFB, there are plenty of ACTUAL rocket scientists in this town who might be offended by any association with Martinez's cabinet, sarcastic or otherwise.

May New Mexico doesn't need a Governor. Maybe a King would be more suitable.
