That housing project on West Alameda is pure plain and simple getting rid of the poor so the rich can have some space downtown. They call it "mixed income" ... and what that means is the complex is divided into 2 different areas distinct from each other. On the side with the better views and more space and better building quality and finishing is where the rich will be... and on the other side where it will be cramped, poor structural quality, and who knows what else.... will the the middle and low class. I strongly believe this is what is going to happen and until I SEE otherwise this project is plain and simple gentrification.

I think one DWI is enough to revoke the driver's license, and give the car to charity. There are plenty of other ways to get around. If you can handle getting drunk and not driving, I don't think you should be allowed to operate a motor vehicle. Call me crazy.

are crazy. Maybe in Denver there are plenty of ways to get around.
There should be severe consequences for first offenses, but I think there are a lot of people in places that take this crime seriously for whom that first offense is the last.

...is "rich", they are not likely to move next door to a low income housing project. Sad but true. More money equals more choices.

I agree with 505guy. They've been trying to get this done for years. Appease the rich folks, calm them down. They have come in and taken complete control of Santa Fe. Enough is enough. Go home, go back to New York and all those places where you can manipulate people. Leave Santa Fe the way it is, alone!~

I`m big on replacing those squalid projects.

Forgive William Waggoner. The DUI Witch hunt needs some mercy.

That drunk chic is one nut case. Hopefully she ain`t driving for a while.

Last but not least. Home owners need guns, guns, and more guns "At the ready"
Who wants to admit they live in a gun free zone. I dare you to put that sign in front of your house.

Malarky! I live in affordable housing RIGHT NEXT DOOR to a 750K condo...

But its true... it kills rich people to know that their money can not shield them from the poor.

Good one. Problem being! You have to let them in the house first. Just set up some bait in the front window, like a big TV, or lap top. That`ll bring them in like flies on fecal matter.
