Today's Opinions

  • A cynical alliance

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The Dallas Morning News and was initially published on April 26.

    Cruz-Kasich alliance to stop Trump is a cynical gamble that could backfire.

    If it holds, the uneasy truce between Texas’ Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich may — and we emphasize may — succeed in keeping real estate mogul Donald Trump from securing enough delegates to win the GOP nomination outright.

  • Just for the record: A recent experience with medical costs

    We can’t all seem to agree about much lately, but perhaps we can all agree that in order to address a problem we have to have some accurate information, even if just one person’s experience.

     So, assuming we agree we do have a problem with medical costs and coverage (including the specter of going bankrupt from medical costs if not insurance costs), I’d like to share a recent experience with surgery and hospitalization:

    As we celebrate national Law Day on May 1 and Juror Appreciation Week in New Mexico, I would like to recognize the vital role each citizen plays in preserving the rule of law by serving on juries in our state courts.

    New Mexico courts each year summon about 10 percent of the state’s adult population to participate in jury service. Along with the ballot box, the jury box is one of the two most direct forms of citizen participation in our system of self-government.

    Well, I just can’t let this information hide out in my collection of books.  I knew I should have looked up “Loma Parda” in my copy of “New Mexico Place Names” by Robert Julyan. His description of this long-gone town says it all and I quote: “A settlement in the north bank of the Rio Mora, 6. Mi. NW of Watrous PO 1872-1900, mail to Watrous. Only silent ruins remain of this infamous village, once infamous on the easter plains a the “Sodom of the Mora.”
