  • Spaceport may head elsewhere

    The New Mexico Legislature’s failure, once again, to expand liability protection for the space industry may send our $200 million Spaceport investment down the drain. Trial lawyers again were the major culprit.
    The Spaceport’s major competitors, Florida, Texas, Virginia and Colorado, already have passed the necessary legislation. New Mexico passed limited legislation in 2010, holding harmless spaceflight operators from lawsuits in case of accidents.

  • Keep the green faith

    In New Mexico, observing St. Patrick’s Day is usually relegated to drinking green beer.  But if you live in or near New York City, you are inundated with the news of the parade for most of the months of January and February.  Every year, the LGBT community sues to seek permission to march in the parade.  And every year, the religious wrong prevents them from joining the festivities.
      In case you aren’t up on your acronyms, LGBT stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered.  You know, those abominations of nature that are trying to destroy the very foundations of our way of life?

  • Lobos win, Aggies fall in March Madness

    It was a mixed day for the state of New Mexico during the second round of the NCAA Tournament in Portland, Ore., Thursday.
    Fifth-seeded New Mexico held off Long Beach State 75-68 and the Lobos will face Louisville in a third-round matchup Saturday in the West Regional. Thirteen-seeded New Mexico State, meanwhile, was unable to handle Indiana inside and fell 79-66 to Indiana in the South Regional.
    In the New Mexico game, Kendall Williams scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half and bottled up Long Beach State star Casper Ware defensively.
    When New Mexico needed a big shot, Williams delivered. His 3-pointer with 4:38 left pushed the Lobos ahead for good after Long Beach State (25-9) took a 61-59 lead on a steal and windmill dunk from James Ennis.
