If I ever get stricken with a serious and almost certainly terminal disease, I can only hope that I will be able to face it with the same level of courage that Speaker Lujan has demonstrated. I hope for the best for him and his family in dealing with this.
What do you know about the level of courage he, or anyone else has?

Before you annoint him for sainthood, please allow God to have a say.

Sr. & Jr. have raped this state for years. They are encouraged to do so every election. New Mexico voters are stupid and deserve to live in one of, or the most corrupt state in the union.
Let me help you out a little bit, not all of us are stupid nor did we all vote for either of them.

Speak for yourself and it appears that is what you are doing.

The only other way to interpret what you're saying is native born New Mexicans which would leave out anyone who moved here but not born here.

First of all, I did not annoint him for sainthood. So don't accuse me of things I have not done.

Secondly, I have watched many family members, friends and coworkers suffer and die from cancer. Cancers of the lung, and mesothelioma, are a pretty bad way to go...unless you enjoy coughing up and choking on blood and puss while having the feeling of suffocating very slowly.

Third, I don't believe in God, but I respect your right to believe in whatever God you think exists.

Fourth, having sympathy for this man, who has been diagnosed with a very grave disease, has no bearing on how I view his track record as a lawmaker.

My dad died of cancer at age 45 so I can empathize.

Seeing your Dad pass away at such an early age must have been tough for the young man that you were back then. My Dad got diagnosed with cancer at age 64. He put up a pretty good fight for 5 years and lived a pretty good life. His last year, however, was rough, and he suffered for 11 months until he passed away at age 70. It was very difficult to watch, and his passing was a blessing.

It wasn't easy then and is even harder now when I consider I'm 63 and I think of how I outlived him and what he must have thought at his age when he learned he had it. I was already in the Navy then(3+ yrs). When he passed he left behind his wife of 23 years, a D-11 and a S-6. Lujan is well beyond that but...

I'm very sorry for your loss. About the only thing that eases it somewhat is the thought that we'll one day be reunited and memories.

I too am sorry for your loss, even though it was so long ago. That must have been very difficult for your younger siblings, especially your little sister. Six-year-old girls are often closely bonded with their Dads, and have them wrapped around their little finger. I know mine did at that age.

I am truly sorry that he must endure lung cancer. Now is the time for him to resign for the good of the state- not because he has cancer, but because he and his hard core leftist totalitariansm are ruining our state.
Yeah, all those jobs and education he brought here reduced crime and poverty, and the Martinez Who' administration won't be able to justify pimping her prison jobs if that continues.

Many regards, Rep. Lujan. You will be missed. Our state is losing a Great Man to a horrible disease. If only you could make it one more session!

Look, Dude, I don't accuse your heart or Lujan's heart of anything.

I am not in the position of judging anyone.

I won't accuse anyone of having a head of hair after a chemo.

I just do not like Emperors who have no clothes.

And I'm not the only one.
