  • 'Give me liberty or give me death!'

    No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the house. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The question before the house is one of awful moment to this country.

  • For those who so proudly served: A tribute on Veterans Day

    This intangible thing we call freedom is interpreted differently by just about every individual, but one aspect that’s not open for debate is that we enjoy freedom because of the sacrifices made by countless men and women of our armed forces. We must never question that freedom is worth fighting for, and dying for. That very concept was the genesis of the United States of America.

  • Bingaman honors veterans

    Each Veterans Day is a solemn occasion when we, as a nation, reflect and show gratitude to those who have served or are currently serving in our military and the families who support them. On this Veterans Day, I’d especially like to thank New Mexico’s veterans for their commitment to protect our country and its interests.

  • Doss signs his newest Charlie Moon mystery

    Los Alamos’ own James D. Doss signs his newest Charlie Moon mystery, “A Dead Man’s Tale,” at 6 p.m. Nov. 18 at Otowi Station Bookstore.
    Charlie Moon, Ute rancher and investigator, isn’t afraid to throw the dice even when a man’s life is at stake, but when that man is betting against himself and Moon’s ability to save him, that makes for some awfully high stakes.
