Misc

The Bloomfield city government, run by fundamentalist zealots, seems intent on proving that they will do anything to force their religious beliefs on the populace.  Their "monument" to the Ten Commandments is subterfuge and it defeats their own arguments that they would not force others to favor their religion.  It is almost comical.  It makes them liars, really.

Attorney General Gary King says he will stay in the race for Governor despite the humiliation of being left out at the Democratic Convention.  Sometimes, we all live in a bubble of one sort or another.  I have not talked to a single voter in the last few days that thinks he can win the Primary or General election.  I am not trying to be malicious here.  Just realistic.

The Albuquerque Journal has been somewhat readable the last few days.  I especially enjoyed their story on Juarez, Mexico.  It was over due.  Their story today on the US Forest Service Drug Sweep at Taos Ski Valley was excellent.  Their editorial page still sucks.

You published this before Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Diane Feinstein dropped her bombshell on the Senate floor as she declared war on the CIA. The classified report she refers to is the one whose release our Senator Heinrich has quietly been calling for for some time.

He has no doubt been prohibited from talking about a lot of things he thinks should be brought out and will be brought out by the release of this report, but I think it will come to light that the steady pressure he and Sen Udall of CO kept up on this was critical in bringing things to a head.
