UPDATE 9/29/11, TIMES THERE AIN’T MUCH A-CHANGIN': The New York Times reports that THIS year’s U.S. / Mexico Border Conference hasn’t improved much upon last year’s conference non grata, with only ONE, count ‘er, ONE U.S. Governess in attendance…full story here.
Hot off the presses or wherever ~news comes from these days – El Majico a.k.a. Governor of New Mexico Bill Richardson has agreed to host this year’s annual Governor’s border conference which has been canceled by Arizona Gov. you-know-who (the zexy, secretly Latin loving Jan Brewer) amid many pending, threatened or implied AZ boycotts by US and Mexican factions of this and other AZ events over the you-know-what (highly controversial AZ immigration law recently passed by that zexy b*tch Brewer).
With a whole host of border town/state issues requiring attention this the 27th annual border conference, to be held in September, is “structured” to serve as a forum for participants to share information, better relations, advance problem solving and decrease tension.
But tension is on the rise as Arizona and Texas (R & R) Gov’s state they will not attend. A stance stuck in mud perhaps to show/hold strong posturing on the issue as they are heading into re-election bids.
Can Rodney Lindsay stay off crack? Guess the answer is the same to both questions…
Of course we can count on the soon to be exiting stage right Governator of CA to attend.

“An Albuquerque man is sleeping on the streets for a few weeks to help people who are forced to sleep there all the time.
Steven Gutierrez has been camping out at Armijo Plaza – at Isleta and Lopez…collecting food and blankets for people in need.
He started three weeks ago and plans to sleep on the streets three days a week until he collects two-thousand and eight items.
Right now he’s only a third of the way there.”
Last year Jennifer Lopez charged $1.2 Million for a forty minute appearance at a billionaire’s birthday party. The “actress”, her husband and her entourage were also treated to paid travel expenses – an additional $800,000, and their stay at a posh London hotel (source).
