  • Unfortunate response

    The allegations that have surfaced against New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Secretary Demesia Padilla are serious and troubling.

    But also troubling is the public response by Gov. Susana Martinez’s office.

    An anonymous person reached out to the state Auditor’s Office to allege that Padilla might have improperly influenced a tax audit of a former client. Specifically, Padilla is being accused of helping the former unidentified client to protect herself from liability and of influencing or pressuring tax employees to help benefit the former client.

  • Dispatch New Mexico - The Roswell Incident and pop culture

    Last weekend I experienced my first Cosmicon. That’s cosmic, not comic, aptly named for its interstellar flavor, which was inspired by an incident in 1947 that put Roswell on the international map.

    Cosmicon is an annual event alongside a science fiction film festival and the 20-year-old UFO Festival, which The Alien City puts on every year around the Fourth of July. And it’s all owed to an alleged UFO crash outside Roswell more than a half century ago.

    If you knew that today was your last day of life and you were asked by a stranger what has been the biggest regret of your life, what would you say? Honestly, what would you say?

    The Poughkeepsie (New York) Journal on improving the Affordable Care Act (July 4):
    Now that the Supreme Court has affirmed another vital aspect of the Affordable Care Act, federal officials should see the wisdom and imperative of improving this complex and important law. They shouldn’t let this matter fester until after the 2016 presidential elections, as they likely are apt to do.

    Contradicting nature
    Change your sex, just because you say so, no problemo.

    Same-sex parents are just as good at raising kids as a female Mom and a male Dad. Right On!

    Kill your own offspring; it’s your right after all.

    This is liberal “progressivism” in our Democratic Party. Absurd? Yes, but these behaviors are celebrated in our media-driven culture. They are applauded today, but they will not last.
