It is pretty easy to tell that I am left of center.  So here is some Sacrilege.  I don't see any problem with people having to show an identification when showing up to vote.  It is at least as important as a thing to do as requiring i.d. for buying a bottle of wine.  If one doesn't have a drivers license then get some sort of i.d. that shows who you are.

This whole debate is really just a culture war and there are more important things to work on in our society.

Another sacrilege today is the photo coverage in the Albuquerque Journal on an otherwise good story on the big donors to politics on both sides of the aisle.  It  has only pictures of democrat donors.  No right wing crazies were shown like the oil and gas magnates and real estate tycoons who supported our new governor.  I am thinking maybe pictures of the Yates Petroleum people and Texas wingnut Rick Perry who gave a half million dollars to Susana Martinez.

“The new always carries with it the sense of violation, of sacrilege. What is dead is sacred; what is new, that is different, is evil, dangerous, or subversive.”    ....Henry Miller
