No Need Here

There is no need for the ultra right wing Koch brothers to include the Albuquerque Journal in their newspaper buying plans.  Since the paper is already editorially so right wing the evil brothers can just move on to other markets.  The publishers and editors of the local rag have already fallen into place with the ultra rich.  And this is in one of the poorest states in the nation.

I have also decided there is no need in the Governor's office for original ideas because Susanna had decided that the movie industry and spaceport are what needs her attention.  Of course those projects were started by Bill Richardson.  At first she condemned them but then found the only thing she could do was to embrace them after seeing that made sense politically and economically.  Pretty soon she will even like the Rail Runner.

The one thing I will support the Governor on is her opposition to social promotion in the schools.  She is right on that one and the legislature should come around.  That and fund a highly effective early childhood reading effort.  I have always believed if kids can read well in the third grade then they an make it in life and career.

I would urge folks to read the comments in yesterday's posting.  They are very telling.

Let's send the governor a picture of someone filling up one of the Rail Runner's 2,500 gallon diesel fuel tanks, and crop out the dozens of cars in the commuter parking lot in the background that aren't polluting the air and clogging up the highways.

Whenever Repubs say anything they really believe, they have to apologize.

I just saw something on Facebook from a group called WildEarth Guardians warning about the BLM considering opening up land around Chaco Canyon for oil and gas drilling. There's not much detail.
