Down to the Wire in New Mexico

Dona Ana County, New Mexico voters will decide the future fate of the first specifically designed suborbital tourist spaceport today. Governor Bill Richardson has advocated the spaceport for 30-months. SEE BALLOT.

If it's just a marvelous project that benefits the state, the whole state should pay for it. This is a very low income area. Albuquerque and Santa Fe has the money, we don't.

Another thing, nobody's going to want to live out there in that sand pit. There's no water. There's not even cell phone service so forget frivolities like high speed access. There is NOTHING there, nothing for miles and miles. The closest convenience store has got to be 50 miles away. Even in town with what "amenities" we have here, we can't hire all the engineers we need as it is. I'd love to see how they plan on getting a bunch of guys moving out there where there's nothing to do. And if they have families? Oh yeah, that'll go over well.

Oh well, it's time to go vote!
