  • More hits than misses

     New Mexico voters did their usual good job separating the wheat from the chaff when it came to the questions at the end of the November ballot.
    Predictably, they gave a sound thrashing to two constitutional amendments designed to give politicians a longer leash. They gave our veterans a couple more breaks. And they sent a message to our higher education system that it is getting out of hand.
