    Defend public lands

    New Mexico is home to millions of acres of public lands.  These lands encompass a diverse range of ecosystems — from the lush green Santa Fe National forest to the glistening White Sands National Monument. Not only are our public lands emblematic of New Mexico’s unique natural heritage, but they also anchor our tourism industry, one of the state’s fastest growing economic sectors.

  • Health care needs reform

    The following editorial was published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune on March 24.

    Congressional Republicans’ first serious attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act suffered a crushing defeat Friday with the last-minute cancellation of a House vote on the GOP proposal.

    The Trump family’s tangle of wealth and privilege has an additional complication. Ivanka Trump is getting an inner-circle White House office and security clearance, making her the most powerful first daughter in recent times.

  • Another Perspective: What’s happened to the Democratic Party?

    Once I was a Democrat. I went to see JFK at a rally in Elmhurst, Ill., wrote to Jimmy Carter and voted for William Jefferson Clinton in his first term.

    But things started to change in the ‘60s with the anything- goes generation, and culminated in Bill’s gig/gag with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office. I learned then we had devolved from a party of upstanding principles to one of political opportunism, i.e. get what you can, any way you can.
