wow--when i saw that headline i gulped--there has been longstanding antipathy toward the bolo--i know as i tried wearing one years ago in the Air Force when needing civilian attire--and was redressed by a general who said the bolo 'was not a real tie'. i about puked in his face. it is about time for new mexico representatives to do this.

It's good they did this. I can only imagine how much time was wasted each day by these guys trying to tie a half-windsor knot.

No transparency, but it's cool for carpetbaggers from Texas to wear bolos so they look more 'authentic'.

They spend time and taxpayer money on crap like this? Only in NM. Whether bolos or regular ties, make 'em wear them really, really tight.

Does the state need a state insect. Vote for one, you have 60 days to waste.

Wasted time and money on an agenda for bolo ties - in an economic state where citizens are losing their jobs, homes, and everything else they have worked for to achieve. Bolo ties – really… This is simply pathetic.

What? you don't want to wear the bolo? everybody wears the bolo. Your not a true New Mexican if you don't wear a bolo.
This is as ridiculous as the wearing a flag pin that the republicans always say you not American unles you wear the pin.
