Daily Beast: The Border Towns the Constitution Forgot.

It’s really hard for people to grasp that, as the CBP interprets it, civil liberties and constitutional protections are suspended 100 miles into the interior of the U.S.” At least ten years ago, while discussing law enforcement issues with an officer, he candidly said, “We pretty much treat anything south of I-40 as potentially ‘below the border.’”

After a day of digging into Expression Engine programming (changing an existing site’s mobile layout through Foundation 5), my brain is just *not* in a creative space. I liked the pattern against the viga crack, and that’s all.

Roundhouse Roundup Blog: Mother Jones Scorches Gov. Susana.

You’ve probably stumbled across the Mother Jones piece already; seems to be the talk of political circles, so I won’t tax your feeds. New Mexicans are unruffled. Perhaps the remainder of the nation’s admirers will prick an ear or three, but I feel that most political cadres operate in this manner. News today, forgotten next week … unless MJ has some powerful follow-up they’ve held back on purpose that brings more centrist media to feed rapaciously in the free-for-all.

SF New Mexican: Patients hit with fees amid health care consolidation.

Representatives of several of the state agencies that were contacted said consumers would be best served by asking whether out-of-pocket hospital-based service charges apply under their insurance plans before setting an appointment at a specialty clinic. Caveat emptor, never moreso than with health care.

SciAm: Massive Turquoise Trade Network of Ancient Pueblos Revealed.

In the new study, researchers traced Chaco Canyon turquoise artifacts back to resource areas in Colorado, Nevada and southeastern California. The results definitively show, for the first time, that the ancestral Puebloans – best known for their multistoried adobe houses – in the San Juan Basin area of New Mexico did not get all of their turquoise from a nearby mining site, as was previously believed.” Instead of those amazing ancient ‘roads’ (no horses!) being a one-way delivery route supplying Chaco, trade was running back and forth across much larger distances. Cool.

SF New Mexican: Mayor proposes closing Plaza to all vehicles.

Merchants are going to have a bloody fit again. This is the eternal conundrum in Santa Fe - it’s a walking town, but Americans prefer to park their behemoths as close as possible to shops. Closing the Plaza does not really take away much parking, and the traffic flow has been logically rerouted before with little inconvenience. I’d ask them to provide information on harm through sales figures, then make a judgment based on realities.
