The Journal ran a story this morning that said the Governor's office blamed the newspaper for the the Governor getting dissed as one of the worst Governors in the country.  Well, the Governor's staff allegation is true.  Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington rated the Governor '1 of the worst' in the country.  The Governor's office said that was due to the Journal's  repetitious reporting of stories on problems with the Investment Council.  It is still important to note that the Governor has never been indicted by any Grand Jury at any level of government.

Albuquerque Mayor Berry continues to be moved off the pages and screens of the media by his publicity seeking public safety chief Darren White.  Maybe that is the way Berry wants it, but I gotta believe that is not true.  I was happy to see Berry get riled up about the revolving door for criminals at the courthouses, but Mr. White is the one with his picture in the paper.

Former Governor Gary Johnson is on the drug legalization bandwagon again.  I am with him on that one, but only that one.  It was courageous for him to take that position when he was Governor.  It cost him big time but sooner or later these laws will fall and your homes will be safe from junkies stealing your flat screens so they can buy a fix.

I will be gone for a few days on a trip to Moab, Utah for a board meeting.  That is a beautiful drive and I am looking forward to it.
