Today's Opinions

  • Mil Gracias - Jan. 18, 2012

    I am writing to let the people of Las Vegas know that there is an establishment in your community that went out of its way to assist a stranger that had broken down on the highway on Dec. 22 at 4:45 p.m. This establishment I am referring to is Michael’s Precision Automotive.

  • End ‘silent’ filibustering

    New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall has been making some national news lately, and for a good cause. He’s helping lead an effort to change the rules regarding filibusters.

    Yes, it’s simply a procedural matter, but it has become a very big deal in the Senate.

  • Work of Art - Did Musburger go too far?

    Men need to be extra careful in how they regard women, even when the woman being described got where she was by being, well, attractive.

    Let me explain:

    The recent Bowl Championship game between the universities of Alabama and Notre Dame flopped. As it had been decades since the Fighting Irish had risen to No. 1, I thought — finally — this is their year. The trouble is, Notre Dame never showed up.

    Even the presence of stellar linebacker, Manti Te’o, a 6-2, 255-pound senior for the Irish, was virtually unnoticed. Let’s not forget that he was a Heisman Trophy finalist.

  • Compromise in Santa Fe

    Tuesday begins a 60-day session of the New Mexico Legislature, and it promises to be a rowdy one. There’s a contest for president pro tem, between Pete Campos of Las Vegas and Mary Kay Papen of Las Cruces on the Senate side, a power void left in the House with the absence of the late Ben Lujan, and a governor who is already putting on the gloves to fight for her proposed budget. It all promises to be great entertainment for political animals statewide.

  • Editor's Note - ‘Water wars’

    Last week it was reported that Texas is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to force New Mexico to share more water from the Rio Grande. Texas officials are accusing New Mexico of usurping a 2008 water-sharing agreement by pulling water out of the river before it gets to their state, and New Mexico Attorney General Gary King has countered that the agreement is unfair and that the Texans’ move is “tantamount to extortion.”

  • Columnist cherry picked the facts

    Regarding (Tom McDonald’s column) “Free Speech and Gun Rights” in the Jan 7 paper:
    I’m disappointed in the way you cherry-picked the facts when drawing comparisons between proponents of free speech and gun rights.

  • Passing mistake on to taxpayers

    Us taxpayers are stuck with Fries Fiasco and/or Lopez’ labyrinth. They didn’t know the rust panels were part of the new building! Now, they want us to pay additional monies to Franken for a color change! Must be nice to think you can just play with taxpayers’ hard-earned salaries and taxes.

    Malfeasance or stupidity — just pass it on to the taxpayer.

    Watch this space — my office will be broken-into, again.
