Today's Opinions

  • An explanation of Arts Council efforts

    In response to a recent letter to the Optic in the Oct. 1 edition: Art organizations and art projects in general have been run aground, unfortunately, in a rather roughshod manner. The Las Vegas Arts Council cannot speak for the artists’ master website or the Artists Directory as they are not our projects. As for the LVAC, in particular, misrepresentations abound.

  • Putting Bond D to good use

    In addition to electing our next governor and other officials on Nov. 2, you will have the opportunity to vote on passage of various constitutional amendments and general obligation (GO) bonds that will have an important impact on our state as well.  


    If approved, Education Bond D will provide $155 million for capital improvements of higher education facilities across the state, including $12.1 million for New Mexico Highlands University and Luna Community College.  A list of all the projects may be found at www.educationinnewmexico.com.

    At the risk of sounding like a self-righteous individual, I must say the recent rescue of the 33 miners in Chile, certainly qualifies as a miracle for me.

  • Buying our votes, 2010

    The governor’s race is the most obvious case in point. Tune in to local radio or Albuquerque television for very long and you’re sure to get an ample dose of creative negativity and bold-faced hypocrisy. You can catch one of Susana Martinez’s ads hammering home Diane Denish’s misuse of taxpayer funds, or a Denish ad that rails against Martinez’s dark and sinister out-of-state connections.

  • Work of Art: I really wanted to join brigade

    One of many things I regret as a youngster was ever trying to become a member of Sister’s Brigade. My compunction has had  to do with telling tales. And as we know, some can tell ‘em, some can’t.


    Let me explain:
