“They may be invisible and their art unsung. But in the age of blogging, editors are needed more than ever.”  Absolutely.  But that kind of superstructure requires income, ad-based or other.

A War the Pentagon Can’t Win.  “While the C.I.A. doesn’t have an unblemished record, its counterterrorism operations have shown more promise than the Pentagon’s. The agency has already had some successes operating in ungoverned spaces.”  Again, I would have to agree.

Too Much Information. “While the absence of policy detail in the Republican presidential campaign is remarkable, Democrats go too far in the other direction.”  I have to agree.  How often does one see such campaign policy papers realized in a subsequent Presidency?  Not often.

Indian Tribe Becomes Force in West’s Energy Boom.  Just over our border in Colorado.  “In a normal world, if you have reserves 50 percent of operations you’re looking pretty strong. The tribe’s reserves in its general fund in 2006 were 21.6 times expenditures.”

County seeks to ease oil-drilling fears.  Yeah, yeah.  Whenever I hear this: “Think about the amount of tax revenue it could bring to the county ...” I realize we’re going to lose, big.  This is what I ran into back in Princeton, NJ, and why I left.  I couldn’t bear to see my beloved hometown destroyed over the pursuit of increased tax revenues by allowing in big-box retailers.  This is, no doubt, similar.  I can only hope our landscape is dry of oil or other energy-bearing strata.

SF New Mexican:

Man lives up to his name in purse-snatching incident.  Never oppose an auto with your body.  Smash the windshield with something that comes to hand easily, like a rock.  Leave identifiable marks.  Playing the ‘running the bulls at Pamplona’ routine with a car is usually a losing situation.

Kids stranded after getting kicked off train.  In these post 9/11 days, one can’t go monkeying around on mass transit.  You lose something, you let the conductor know first, before rummaging around the train.

SF New Mexican:

Clamor to keep parks open.  Fall and winter, with the early dark, would be the times this would be most annoying.  I love this comment: “If you are just there kicking the ball around, reading a book, why would the police come talk to you? I know the police will not be doing that.”  Of course they will.  Who reads books after dark?  Temporary curfew on the problem parks, with increased patrols ... leave the rest. One would hope parents would enforce their own ‘curfew’ on their kids during the school year.
