The Morning Fix - Former Guv Johnson Says the 'R' Word. Councilor Sanchez Wants a Foxhole.


Former Guv Gary "Big J" Johnson commends Martinez for examining film tax incentives. Says she ought to take a look at the RailRunner too.

• City councilor talking about needing a bullet-proof dais, giving councilors something to duck behind if shooting starts. And those in the audience? Maybe high-backed bullet-proof seats with built-in periscopes...to allow viewing of 21st century democracy in action.

• Our Water Utility Authority is suing PNM and the PRC along with the AG. Why? Try to follow this perverted logic. To protect "residential and small business ratepayers," PNM is upping the cost of electricity to the WUA by $3.5 million without any input from the Water Authority. That increase, of course, will be paid by...residential and small business ratepayers!

• Speaking of water, every day seems to bring more breaking water pipes. Btw, read the first two comments as well. I do know that concrete asbestos water pipes were being installed in the valley as late as 1971.

• Go directly to jail. Do not pass Go. But DO collect $200. The Metro Detention Center is hiring 100 people to be jail guards. Current prisoner-to-guard ratio is about 90 to 1.

• Intel claims "best year in history." 2010 Sales up 24%, profits up 167%. Hmmm.

Looking for a deal on a nosecone? Over 4 feet high with military markings...$200. East mountains (natch).

It is a sad situation when community interaction possibly is put in jeopardy by armed opponents because it discourages the exchange of important ideas necessary for solving community problems.

The fact that there was no train between Albuquerque and Santa Fe until the RailRunner is beyond me. I'm originally from Chicago and I can't imagine why it took so long. It makes so much sense and can be expanded to so many other destinations, North and South.

The idea of dismantling the RailRunner is upsetting. Why must things be torn apart? Why not just make it better. Such backward thinking.
