Holy Weak Economy

Federal furloughs have arrived at our beloved State Film Office which will be closed for the day mañana. So you won’t officially be able to challenge Lisa Strout or ogle Eric Witt this Good Friday.

These mandated days-off and El Majico’s order to charge credit card fees for state payments are among efforts to help re-line the threadbare pockets of the Nuevo México economy.

Harry Winston Brooks is open to suggestion to save the terminal congestion that is the underfunded, over administrated, blood red APS ~budget. Tonight’s scheduled town hall meeting for the communal grasping of proverbial straws for ideas on how to fix the school district’s money woes, affecting thousands of students and educators has been canceled. Brooks is asking the community he works for to touch-type their ideas on the APS website, just in case some/one of us might bring more than a bandaid or a sweeping chopping block to the tableau.

The Duke too is announcing his economic recovery plans for the city, and is on record asking that us pilgrims, “come to the table“.

Good thing El Majico has worked so hard to put New Hollywood New Mexico on the entertainment map, so much so that the Duke has inherited the #1 city in the country for television and film production. The entertainment industry is one of the few industries that is in the black and in fact reporting profits in these here, “tough economic times.”

Maybe a good screenwriter can pen a solid, state economic recovery plan set in the school district – Hey, the Emmy winning series Breaking Bad has wrapped season three. Get them there cast & crew on the task, pilgrim.

“For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus – and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.” – President Barack Obama

“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man, and when white will embrace what is right,” – Rev. Joseph Lowery

It is a beautiful day for our country, but I would feel remiss if I didn’t voice my notice of the little to no mention for Women’s/Equal Rights. Freedom and equality per race and religion – yes, but I did not hear a nod to the revered responsibility and sacrifice undertaken by his single mother and grandparents in raising him. I’m sure it was an oversight that our new leader’s actions will remedy.
