They sure don’t make ‘em like that any more.”  A Studebaker Avanti as a daily driver.  I have to admit, I thought that design would never age.  It looks long in the tooth now.

Albuquerque Tribune:

“After initially claiming that red-light camera-foiling license-plate covers don’t work, the city now says they do - and that they’re illegal.”  Someone needs to take it beyond settlement, to court.

“The federal government has been urging people to sock away money for their retirement, but low-income families would be foolish to take that advice, according to a report recently released by a Washington think tank.”

“Put simply, the Constitution does not allow the President to order the military to seize civilians residing within the United States and detain them indefinitely without criminal process, and this is so even if he calls them ‘enemy combatants.’”

“In the US, the cost of home loans, corporate loans to build new factories, and interest expense on the federal deficit has hit the highest level in about a year. Economists worry that long-term rates will move even higher. This could prolong the downturn in the housing market and cast doubts on the future direction of capital markets.

Chicago Tribune:

“If you’re honest with yourself, you admit that two hours spent with well-chosen professional television or film is a much more rewarding experience, that reading the Guardian online is a vastly more efficient use of one’s news-seeking time than jumping among 20 blogs in search of nuggets of wisdom.

City’s White Elephant Now Looks Like a Transit Workhorse.  “Riders can push a button and select which of the five stops they want on the system’s 3.6-mile route; it is like a horizontal elevator that can go 30 miles per hour. The driverless, 21-passenger fiberglass cars, gliding on rubber wheels and powered by electric motors, pick up riders and deliver them to their stops quickly, bypassing intermediate stations along the concrete and steel guide way. It is this individualized destination option that sets it apart from other cities’ systems.”

Albuquerque Tribune:

Not paving Chaco road preserves area’s value.  News articles of late have been talking of the tourist devastation to Bandelier, yet some wish to pave the road to Chaco.  Leave it dirt, leave the ruts. It is an essential part of the overall experience.  You enter Chaco’s world, rather than having modernity pull up to ancient history.  Chaco’s historical importance can’t be overstated.
