Albuquerque Tribune:

Legislation targets credit cards.  “It also would limit so-called penalty increases in interest rates for payments made after the due date, to a maximum 7 percentage points above the current rate.”  It’s about time Congress addressed usury.

West Nile Virus study: Bird species devastated by disease.  “Of the 20 species included in the study, American crows were the most affected, declining about 45 percent overall from 1998 to 2005. Populations of American robins, chickadees, eastern bluebirds, blue jays, tufted titmice and house wrens also dropped, according to the study.”

The middle of nowhere.  A different opinion, rarely heard these days.  Sort of a “prime directive” take; let the Middle East grow by itself, and look elsewhere for progress.  The more we meddle, the worse it gets.

Earthshattering news.

Bigger than anything you can think of, if you live in Santa Fe.  Bobcat Bite is paving its parking lot.  What are they thinking?  It’ll ruin the hardscrabble character of the place, and make the porch unbearably hot.  Bobcat Bite is, unofficially, the finest burger joint in Northern New Mexico.  People wait outside for extended periods, because it doesn’t hold many.  This changes the character completely.  I have hopes it’ll get buried in dust and dirt ...
