The kooks seem to be winning. Who is paying attention to what is going on around us?

Prairie dogs have assumed an elevated status. This furry little rodent, carrier of the Black Plague virus, has managed to delay the construction of the Rail Runner track into Santa Fe and is increasing the cost of the project.

The road fund has been raided by the dominant party in the Legislature to the point where needed road repair and construction are to be halted with a consequent loss of 5,400 construction jobs.

Congress is obsessed with dinging the president and can’t pass a bill to fund vital research at New Mexico’s two nuclear laboratories. The responsible party in Congress, the Democrats, is working to slash the laboratories’ budgets so as to have money for pet social, vote-getting programs.
