So much for our peaceful community ... “Vandals ram a stolen backhoe into a nearly finished investment home, causing more than $40,000 in damage.”  Gotta be kids.  They know there’s precious little law enforcement out here (no local police).

Build subdivisions too close to archaeological sites ... and you get spraypaint gang sign on petroglyphs.  Albuquerque’s encroaching Petroglyph National Monument, building roads through it for the convenience of developers.  I suppose I should go down this year and take photos, before it’s all destroyed over the next decade.

Watch out: Here comes $4 gasoline.  Getting tired of hearing the ‘refinery outage’ excuse year after year.  Repair, replace - or supplant with new energy sources.  Don’t just sit and twiddle thumbs ... though that seems to be lining certain pockets rather healthily.

Washington Post:

Study: Hispanics Transforming U.S. Religion.  “The survey found Hispanics see religion as a moral compass to guide their political thinking and expect the same of politicians, with the feeling stronger among evangelicals. Most Hispanics believe social and political issues should be addressed from the pulpit.”

“It actually eggs us on. On e-mail, people aren’t quite themselves: they are angrier, less sympathetic, less aware. ... E-mail has a tendency to encourage the lesser angels of our nature.”  In comments, too.  Expressing tone accurately, is a forgotten art for many.  I work on it constantly.

How internet booksellers are killing art of browsing.  And yet, with no basis for me to theorize from other than experience, perhaps this will reinvigorate libraries.  My impression was, after the Barnes & Noble/Borders/Waldenbooks phenom, library use went down.

Internet crime rises in New Mexico.  So many remain shockingly uninformed about internet scams.  Interesting to see ‘auction’ fraud is more than half the stats.
