It's not Bill and it's not Marty. It's the $100 million in equipment and incentives. If you want to be competitive, you have to pony up. When is the last time New Mexicans were willing to pony up rather than feed at the trough?

Willing to, or forced to w/o having a say in the matter? We're small change on the grand scale here. Metro San Fran has over 7.2mil people, the entire state here is less than $2.5mil. We can't compete with those kinds of numbers.

Besides, how can you lose what you never had in the first place?
