Our Governator

New Mexico, almost in its entirety, is covered with snow. Cattle are starving, people are without power, temperatures are well below freezing, snow removal is more than just difficult in a state that has never had as much snow as we do now. Men and machines are being worked to the point of exhaustion and the poor and elderly are having severe difficulties coping with a situation that has never happened here before.
But that doesn't seem to bother our Governator. Bill Richardson is going to jet off to the Sudan to try and help them with their constant warring. You heard me correctly. Problems have arisen that have never happened in the past, but our Governator is flying off to a foreign country to help them. I wonder if he would do that if he were President and the American nation had a crisis going on its own backyard?
I am not denigrating his wish to help other peoples, just wondering about his priorities. If his own house were ablaze, would he be in town trying to raise money for the local zoo?

hey again--
kind of off thread, here--but there's nowhere to post on your sidebar article about the mayor.

this guy is actually spending that much on beautifying an intersection while the schools go wanting???
mebbe _he_ should go back to school--and study elementary economics.

I guess I can't talk too loudly--
Kansas City [where I live] used to have a mayor who owned a cement company.
so, when anyone asks why we have more statues and fountains than Paris or Rome -- well there's your answer.
the city is pretty but the schools suck.

I just noticed that about no post click on the sidebars. What have I done wrong? How do I fix them?

And I just thought I'd rub something in...doesn't Dubya have a Master's in Economics?

hey, Catmoves--
as to the logistics on the blog--
I don't think there's a way to set up a comments section in the sidebar. I think you'll have to post it as an article in the body of the blog.
dunno what kind of degrees W may have.
if he does have a masters at anything beyond Tinker Toys, I'd be much surprised.
