Damned If You Do, Damned if You Don't and NYC

I actually appreciate the coverage by the Albuquerque Sunday Journal on out of state contractors getting state building projects even though they cheat by saying they are local companies.  They just rent a small office somewhere so they can say that.  They are con men.  But, they are also the low bidders.

Now, if the Richardson administration were to give the contracts to higher legitimate local bidders inside the state instead of going with the low bid from outside, you would see stories about favoritism for locals especially if they had made a contribution to Democrat campaigns.

This is a no win situation for any administration.  In the end though you just should get what the taxpayer has funded, a well built project that will last and is efficient.

I can't wait until we see who planted the car bomb in NYC's Time Square.  I am pretty sure it will not be a foreign terrorist but a Glen Beck/Rush Limbaugh inspired red neck lunatic.  But, I could be wrong.
