  • Dispatch New Mexico - Election-year issues that will and won’t matter

    In the wake of the Labor Day weekend comes the campaign for Election 2014, in earnest.

    All the noise you’ve heard so far was just the warm-up. Now comes the hyperbole, followed by a big dose of overkill.

    Still, it’s an important election. On every New Mexico ballot this November, there will be boxes to check for governor and lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer, auditor, land commissioner, U.S. senator and representative and five state constitutional amendments.

(As early as 1863 the Atchison & Topeka Railroad added Santa Fe to its company name, when it decided that New Mexico’s capital city would be the southern destination of its rail line.)

    The Tribune, Seymour on common sense and guns (Sept. 4):
    A little girl’s life was changed forever. A man’s life was brought to an abrupt end. A nation is left to wonder why and how it all happened.
    Recently, reports emerged from Arizona that a 9-year-old New Jersey girl had accidentally shot her firing-range instructor with an Uzi submachine gun. The instructor, 39-year-old Charles Vacca, was standing next to the girl when she squeezed the trigger.

    Once again immigration reform has been pushed to the back burner, this time by President Barack Obama, who announced on Meet the Press over the weekend that he will wait until after the November midterm elections to take up the issue.

    Previously, Obama had threatened to issue an executive order by summer’s end if Congress failed to take up the matter.

    Now the Obama administration is pledging to act before the end of the year.

    We’re not holding our breath.
