Bill Richardson's white elephant that the New Mexico taxpayers will be paying for as long as it runs. The ridership numbers were inflated by free rides and all of the democrats were onboard pushing for this project. We are only on beginning to hear what the real cost of this project is and its going to be huge. I also think Denish bares some of the blame for all thats wrong not just with this project but for the Richardson years of excess.

She was most certainly a willing accomplice to this fiasco.

YES .(that was a period)

it will never post any type of break-even or profit within the lifetime of anyone reading this.

I understand you CAN get a space ride to Santa Fe for a few extra bucks.

This state could have bought 100 busses for the cost of that boondoggle.

Lol, had they bought 100 buses to move those state employees, they'd have overbought, something the state is very adept at doing! Buses would have been a much better and more economical fit. Ever wonder why heavily subsidized AmTrak never provided such service? Hmmm, maybe they knew something about moving people and short/long term costs...

Do those Space Rides come with your very own $Bill autographed tin-foil hat in black magic marker or gold leaf fine point<G>? How much does the space port glean off the top for hawking them?
