Predicting 2012

-A A +A
By Jay Miller

Happy New Year. Let’s see how the crystal ball looks this year. 

HMMM … it looks clearer. Maybe that is because we’ve had a year to get acquainted with the new state administration.

Oh, I see Gov. Susana Martinez pushing her drivers license bill up another steep hill. Maybe she should wait until next year and hope she has a Republican legislature.

I don’t see any bill to eliminate the $25 million film rebate cap now that the governor is a supporter of the film industry. Maybe that one is waiting until next year, too.

I see the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We started knowing that last year when items from Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Billy the Kid started selling at many times their expected value.

I see Iranian scientists scratching their heads trying to figure out how to reverse engineer the drone airplane they captured.

I see the Aggies beating the Lobos at football once again. That makes how many times in a row?

I see the protest movement morphing several more times to include any cause a group is willing to finance.

I see no more $10,000 bets made on live television ... but much joking about it.

I see Mitt Romney winning the Republican nomination for president.
