Fracking.  In the very long term the earth will heal itself from the self-destructive, short-sighted tendencies of humans with dollar signs for eyes. The short-term outlook for the latter is not so good.

isn't New Mexico in a severe drought?  doesn't the fracking process require massive amounts of water?  why are more new houses being built if we are in a drought?  just curious...

Interesting that the owner of Revolver is blaming the death of the film industry in NM for her business closing in that article, but on their Facebook page ranted and raved about the Disco family's selling the building to another buyer was the primary reason they are closing.  What's the truth? 

As for fracking, yes, we will sell our future for short-term gains.  I am certainly glad I don't have children who will have to attempt to live on the screwed-up planet we've exploited for fuel.

I find it odd that the Revolver owner is upset...he never liked Albuquerque and trashed our population as not being as hip as San Francisco.

I did not blame the turn down in the film industry for the shop closing, the writer of the article emphasized that in the way he worded the story. I did comment that there was a slow down in projects, which was true. As for the comment on "trashing" Albuquerque as not being as hip as San Francisco, that comment is was not "trashing'" it was just a business fact. Independent Small Retail here is tough, and I don't think stating that a city like San Francisco is more hip than Albuquerque would be argued by many people, it's just the truth. We like it here or we wouldn't have moved here. When you speak of business, there are certain things that are relevant to trying to make a living and not meant to be taken out of that context. We lost our shop, our livelihood, something we had since 1997. It is hard to explain losing something you created and loved that was also your source of income to people who don't know what owning a small business can be like. It's brutal. We were always more on the personal end, the art and design end and less on the business end. -Samantha Anastasiou---co-owner Revolver
