Los Alamos woman aquitted in death of husband

Good sense prevailed. Sometimes I just hate prosecutors. Who told them their job was to do anything they could to convict everyone they could of everything they could think of? It really tilts the scales against citizens.  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #8)

Attorney: Few facts certain in plunge fatality

Getting back to the subject of the article, I say, let her go! How ridiculous to try to lynch her. This is an absolute tragedy for her. Compound it by charging her with homicide etc. when no one even knows the facts for sure? Just leave her alone and let her nurse her wounds and manage her own guilt about an event that she CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER. She's in hell enough without having the government come after her.  (Oct 6, 2009 | post #10)

Chavez joins Santa Fe mayoral race, Jaramillo exits counc...

Wow, what an impassioned speech. I don't know Chavez, but after reading this I think I would be wise to vote for him.  (Oct 5, 2009 | post #27)

Northwest Quadrant development plan partially approved

Go right ahead. Bulldoze and build, bulldoze and build, and the faster you do it the happier we'll all be--until you run out of room. And water. What then? Santa Fe has turned from a nice and healthy town into a city plagued with water shortages and crime in just the past 10 or 12 years. The last land will be developed in another 5. What then, city councilors? What's your master plan for Santa Fe after it has run out of land and water? And do you even remember all the boohooing and tearing of hair back during the drought? Do you even remember that we almost had to have the National Guard truck water in for us? You'll run us out of resources completely in another 20 years. What then?  (Oct 1, 2009 | post #96)

Preventing suicide by design

We need to stop people from jumping from the bridge because it's horribly traumatic for the people who have to clean it up and it's very expensive as well. I don't agree that the rest of us must look at the view through netting or poles, though. Nets laid down below the bridge to catch the jumpers would make me happy. I think that's a great idea--and a lot cheaper than making our public servants clean up the messes.  (Sep 29, 2009 | post #10)

Motorcyclist dies on N.M. 599

Wow, so easy to make assumptions, isn't it? Crazy woman out of control of her vehicle, probably distracted, probably on cellphone, maybe even Mexican, was her fault and she should be in jail. You know nothing. NOTHING. For all you know she is a native Santa Fean, a careful and alert driver who uses these roads on a daily basis--and got hit by a guy going 100 mph. No, you can't judge how fast a motorcyclist is coming toward you if he's going 100 mph. It's much too small to judge--though I'll wager most people couldn't judge the speed if it had been a big white pickup instead. See what I mean? People here have no f*****g clue how fast he was going, if he was changing lanes, NOTHING. Why not go off and listen to Glenn Beck awhile?  (Sep 15, 2009 | post #27)

Zozo's last stand

This whole Zozobra thing feels ultra creepy to me--but this year the "news" article makes it seem creepier than ever. Burning effigies of humanoids alive while they moan in agony and wave their arms? #1: Burning effigies to banish evil comes directly from Eurasian Steppe tribes and has nothing to do with Spanish-American culture. Europeans established this particular event in Santa Fe. #2: The practice of burning effigies to banish evil is closely connected with burning actual HUMANS alive--as so many countless "witches " had done to them throughout Europe. I don't get why so few people are really creeped out by the imagery of someone waving their arms and moaning as they burn alive. Just lost contact with history maybe?  (Sep 11, 2009 | post #42)

Murder charges filed against two in Santa Fe killing

Where are all our angry racists today? Now that two Anglos have been charged with murder? Are they feeling just a little foolish today? Nope. Doubt it.  (Sep 8, 2009 | post #4)

No title

You can't actually tell. Mine says "Albuquerque " but I've never lived there, I'm in Santa Fe. It's some weird thing that happens when you register.  (Sep 7, 2009 | post #36)

No title

Wow, I never fail to be amazed by the level of commentary here. Vile, bitter, mean, childish. A man died in a very sad and possibly brutal way. No one knows how he died. Some unfortunate person found him. The police are investigating. And for this we have two pages of stinking, hate-filled, whiney, hostile vitriol? Just amazing.  (Sep 7, 2009 | post #35)

Officials seek clarification of hospital's policies

Yeah, you're right. I'm a gay anti-Catholic monster devil with an evil "agenda" to take "control " of Santa Fe and damn everyone else!!! Good grief, where do you right wing nutjobs get your cockamamie ideas from? Freaking ridiculous. St. Vincent is the only hospital in town. The government helps pay for it, which means my taxdollars help pay for it. It isn't a CHURCH for goodness sake. All I want is for them to treat me and my partner with human dignity. For that I am some kind of monster with an agenda to control Santa Fe? PLEASE stop taking whatever drugs you're taking.  (Sep 5, 2009 | post #15)

Community action called for to quell gang problem

Get the boomcars off the streets. These gangland, racy cars with their painful booming send the message to kids that Santa Fe is the place to be for gangs, drugs, and toughguys. Try to get over the naive idea that they're "just innocent kids looking for fun." Most are hardened adult men who easily turn violent. Tolerating them sends the wrong message to our kids.  (Sep 4, 2009 | post #33)

Bulldozed acequia riles neighbors

Peoples' priorities constantly confuse me. It's okay to bulldoze, pave, completely obliterate an entire hillside, move your family in to a big new house and park your car outside where once there were pinons, rabbits, and birds. It's okay to turn a finely tuned ecosystem into a big tinker-toy city. It's NOT okay to bulldoze a nearly completely erased ditch that once served a farm that no one who lives there can even remember. In other words, its OKAY to completely destroy nature for ever and ever. It's NOT okay to destroy something that some guy made so long ago that you can't even see it anymore. Wow. Screw nature, huh? We're the only important ones.  (Sep 2, 2009 | post #54)

A look at the candidates

Gee, who am I? Let's see, I'm not a "very wealthy and part-time liberal resident," though I'm liberal. Not a "very poor immigrant." Oh! I must be middle class! (And liberal). Now, why don't I feel like I'm being squeezed? Hmm. Oh I get it! You're middle class and you're feeling squeezed because you're a right wing nutjob and Coss hates you in particular! Just you! Now it all makes sense. Can you try spewing something other than idiocy?  (Aug 31, 2009 | post #16)

Wow. Hippies, eh? And who would want anyone who pays attention to unions, workers, and the poor? Ewww. Guess we know where you're coming from, Hostile-Person-Afr aid-to-Identify-Yo urself.  (Aug 31, 2009 | post #15)
