Bill Gates started his great computer revolution in Albuquerque, New Mexico near the house I grew up in near San Mateo and Central. Because of small thinkers and fate he found it necessary to leave the Duke City when his local lawyers demanded payments in cash rather than shares of stock. Gates went home to Seattle and the rest is history.
Is this what Governor Martinez's administration is getting ready to do once again? I am not sure that the space port will be a great success. No one was sure Bill Gates would be either. But both the space port and Microsoft share cutting edge ideas that requires some risk and vision. And it appears the Governor just wants to dump one of them because it wasn't her idea and Bill Richardson started it.
This is sad because one thing Bill Richardson had was a bigger than life vision for what could be. Now we have an ultra right wing administration that wants only to please the oil and gas industry.
I finally got around to reading Martinez's state of the state speech. It was incredibly shallow and not much more than a political hack speech written by a second rate writer. Read it to believe it.
I am off to Salt Lake City for a board meeting. I hope the sun is shining.
