The Albuquerque Police Department and Democratic Presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton are both using social media to skirt the press in making announcements. APD Chief Eden, a certifiable failure, has used YouTube to announce an investigation into two officers accused of beating a suspect. That way there is no hard questions for him to answer. That is good for him and bad for us. And of course not a peep from the Mayor.
And Hilary Clinton gives us a four minute blurb announcing her run for the Presidency. That is it. No hard questions for her either. Don't get me wrong, I like her and would vote for her in a general election. But once again, where is the new leadership? Why are we reaching into the 90's again with the Clintons and bushes?
Susanna Martinez seems to be only a fly on the wall as legislators negotiate issues that might be considered for a special session. The leadership is moving ahead while the governor seems to be ambivalent about doing her job. I have never understood pols like here who seem to think that 'being there' is the only reason for being elected. Voters need to think about leadership qualities once in a while.
We are back from upstate New York. On Sunday in the town of Camillus where our son and family live the sun came out and a spring like day was presented. It was great watching these upstaters come out of their homes into the nice weather shielding their eyes from the bright sky. They looked like hibernating bears coming out of caves. Most of them got to work right away walking dogs or working in the yards. Their several feet of snow had disappeared.
