Blurry Bill

My friend, David W. Teske from Manchester, Iowa was about as apolitical as you could get. But he could always spot the “implant.” That is, the person placed into the situation that was there to manipulate.
In New Mexico, Governor Fat Bill Richardson is that “Implant.”

Fat Bill and I are SOOOO happy that it is a Hoilday today. He is stuffing his face and I'm scooping horse poop.

Its nice Fat Bill's State coffers are bulging like his belly but Cities and towns are not as flush.

I wish Governor Gordo would go after the underground economy that doesn't pay their fair share taxes. From the itinerant vendors or street vendors to the corporate giant donators, all over New Mexico the idea of a Democratic tax-cutting Governor is being pushed as the credentials for national office. Man, it is as phony as a three-dollar bill.

In fact that's what we should call Fat Bill Richardson...Three-Dollar Bill.

President Mike

I take back everything bad I have ever said about ex-military.

President Mike used to be Colonel Peters but he is now President Michael Peters of St. John’s College, Santa Fe. He told me he didn’t like titles but even though I only spoke to him for a short time, I have to call him President Mike out of respect. The guy is cool; commands respect; and laughs alot.

He is strong on authority and humble about leadership. It seems funny to have a West Point Grad as President of the very liberal St. John’s College. I think it was an early in this century when one of the College’s presidents said it was the role of the college to simply teach the difference of “fact from fiction.” Something most of the “Johnnies” and liberals I know really need to learn.

Chief Lennen says "No Mob in Santa Fe but..."

Chief Lennen says there is no Mob in Santa Fe but Tom Arnold is filmimg "Three Wise Guys" at Rt. 66 Casino and has been spotted in Santa Fe.

While recently beating me with a rubber hose, she told me that it was my mouth that was getting me in trouble. I told her I know and it just cost me a"fity" for bad mouthing the United Way.

Walking down Marcy St. I ran into City Councilor David Coss who would not comment on whether our current Mayor Larry Del Jello is awake yet.

We talked about the problems associated with DOGS in Santa Fe. A candidate for Mayor himself, Coss said when dealing with dogs it came down to a little "enforcement." Coss being a man of few words nailed it with one word.

Ortiz Park Reprint

The real estate market has gone to the dogs like everything else in Santa Fe. I blame the dogs themselves. If people ate dogs rather them treat them as royal pet people might be able to pay rent or buy a house.

When Ortiz Park was being establish, petitions were being passed around to allow dogs off leash not only in the proposed dog park but everywhere in the City.

People signed the petition stating how many times a week and how many miles they drove to have their dogs shit on just this one piece of public land. Out of the 350 signatures on the 23 page petition the average frequency of their visits to the dog park was 6.5 times a week and from an average distance of 2.99 miles away or...13,604 miles driven every week to have their dog crap at Ortiz Park.


The Mob in Santa Fe?
