Back on the Horse
Sitting in the Pink's Cafe. Eating those little French donuts.
"Who the heck are those people in the picture? I think I see Debbie, Rat Lujan, and Mayor Coss. I know the Governor was there but who else was invited to fake shoveling party? Thank God, at least I see one human...good old Lucky. Some of the DIGnitaries must be from that rip-off pile of lawyers called the Mistrust for Public Scams. Stupid fuckheads. I saw the Governor on TV saying that the railyard was going to be "the heart of Santa Fe" and he was there "to help." I hope won't be like the help he gave to the so-called 'Year of the Child" ... his veto of State money for Santa Fe schools is killing the District. The Railyard, the Lensic, Church property, the Convention Center ... I think Santa Fe is taking the a lovely Baghdad approach to downtown redevelopment." Cove's rants at the morning table over coffee are just the worst.
Cris turned to everyone and asked about the planned use of the ugly "cage-o-river rock" walls for the railyard public park. Cove just continued.
"Yes the fortifications are going fuckin' forward Cris without an H. The landscape designers also work for Homeland Security. Baghdad was their last design assignment. They did a beautiful job of similar cage-o-river rock in the Green Zone."
I think Frankie agreed with Cove about the Fat Bill part of the story, but Frankie wondered out loud "I thought you and the Governor were friends?"
Cove said nothing but Santiago did..."Whine whine whine."
'Santigo, please, not this morning' most people there seemed to project. But sure enough Santiago Filamino did his "WE locals" and "US locals" and stupid fucking "go back to Baltimore" rap. Fucking Baltimore?
"Fuck you Santiago." Cove is so cute when he's all worked up.
