Back Home with a Tan
I got home to see the Darren White, City Public Safety Officer, is still in the news. His 'rescue' of his spouse from police officers and medics after a traffic accident continues to bring grief to the Mayor. It also makes the police chief look pretty lame too. Why can't White just admit he screwed up and resign.
I also notice the Journal is touting the fact that the city bus system hit a million passengers for the fourth month in a row. When I was Mayor and trying to pass the transportation tax that funds the bus system the Journal was not a big supporter. They thought more should go to the developers road building effort. Now, we can see what an investment in public transportation can mean. And yet they still hate the Rail Runner System between Belen and Santa Fe. Short sighted again. I am pretty sure the bus system doesn't make money, just like the interstates and state highways, but since the Journal's advertisers make no money from the existence of the train then it is a bad thing. The train really means less car sales and road building for developers.
