  • Listen to the silence

    What one does is important, but what one says can be just as important.  
    In fact, we even have laws stipulating what can or cannot be said.
    You can’t launch a volley of vulgarity in a public restaurant. You can’t yell “Fire!” in a building just for fun. You can’t joke about having a gun in an airport.
    Oddly enough though, there’s no law against lying.

    What first surfaced earlier in the week as tensions between the two over problems with the statewide voter computer system now appears to be on the verge of erupting into a full-blown feud.
    During a telephone call as she traveled north from Las Cruces Thursday, Herrera unloaded 18 months worth of suppressed exasperation.

  • LAPS dedicates new LAHS wing
