WHAT A WEEK!
I'm a political junkie, but with all the stuff going on these past few days I feel like I'm about to OD.
And now Julia's accusing me of hagiography. At least it's not child hagiography.
Besides all the scrambling for Pete Domenici's seat (Heather in, Udall out, Pearce pondering, Lyons leaning, Richardson closing the door), the latest story is about state Sen. John Grubesic's announcement he's not running for re-election. Here's an early Web version of the story. But check The New Mexican tomorrow. There's much more, including a possible surprise candidate.
My favorite part of Heather's announcement press conference today was seeing Al Hurricane there and getting to yack with him for the first time in at least a couple of years. Al's a long-time Wilson supporter. But whatever your politics, he's a great New Mexican musician. I'll play a song of his on the Santa Fe Opry tonight.
No politics for me this weekend. I'm taking my son to see They Might Be Giants at the Santa Fe Brewing Company Sunday. If you see me there do me a favor and don't try to talk politics. back in 1992 or so I took my daughter to see TMBG in Albuquerque and I had to threaten to strangle this guy WHO WAS ON ACID and wanting to talk politics (!!!!) during the concert.
