26. It's too bad that in NM it seems to be that we take what
we can get, huh? I don't know enough about the Richardson vote "scandal" to comment, as I wasn't living in NM at the time and didn't follow it very closely, but I know that NM has at LEAST its fair share of corruption, among both repukes and Dems. That's one reason, at least for where I grew up in NM, that Dems had a hard time. But the reds can keep screeching...NM is blue, I think, and getting bluer. We've got to clean up our act, because we have SO much potential. New Mexico really represents an authentic "melting pot," a diverse mix of races, economic classes, and social povs, that I think our state has a lot to offer and contribute. If WE can get it together, (I hate to make this analogy, but feel it apt), WE can be "the shining light on a hill." I often feel, as a native New Mexican, that here in this state we have a very "true" representation of "America" that lots of people seem unaware of.
