Whoa! Fair New Mexico Posted on July 12, 2010 by Karen Fayeth 2 Comments Looking for news from the homeland, I hit up the news tab on Google and put in New Mexico as my search term. And what did I get back from that big omnipotent search engine? New Mexico man set on fire after losing drinking game 3 dead in New Mexico business shooting… and Police search for two after finding missing boy (in New Mexico)* My oh my former home state. Very busy in the news today. But not, you know, in a good way. Clearly, Bill disapproves…. * text in parentheses is mine.
Shamefully, I read the weird news at Rotten.com (stay away from the comments if you want to stay sane), and this is the first time I can remember that NM made it in two days in a row (for the burned leg & the office shooting).
I wouldn't know this if I didn't read it, I guess. But it is busy, busy here in NM. Maybe because it's getting a bit hot? Weather boiling the brains?
Yeaaaah. Some would say that the bad press is good for NM. Keeps people out.
Personally, I'd rather no attention than the world knowing we cultivate people who set their own artificial leg on fire after losing a drinking game.
But that's just me…..
