- Veteran of the Southwest honky-tonk circuit. Homeowner slash builder, photographer, musician, and of course pajama-wearing, guitar-player pundit. I ask only two things: (1) please don't message me when you have something new. I start every session here on the most recent page, filtered by my favo(u)rites. (2) When you comment, it reassures me you've approached the piece as what the quaint of heart like to call a 'reader.' I have a lovely wife, fantastic friends and two charming cats. What else is there?

She rode the waves of Crackpot Dome back in 2010 more skillfully than Margo Oberg, casting her opponent as a carry-over from Bill Richardson's second term. The gubernatorial jet and yadda. She represents more of the same. Also yadda. (Also "he-he-h… Read full post »

The Roberts Court poses an affront to my beliefs.
Potter Stewart found us the language that failed 5 of our current justices: we know corruption when we see it, smell it, and have it thrust in our faces as a fact of life.

I live in the 37th congessional district of Texas, located in southeastern New Mexico, which has long-since gerrymandered its little Medusas into our part of the state.
