Tonight’s articles for discussion

From KOB-TV (Albuquerque Ch.4)

No charges filed against NM co. that sent body parts to Kan.

It seems that current U.S. law allows everyone involved in the body-parts market to make money, except the donor (or the donor’s estate). See here for examples – Reason: Who Owns Your Body Parts?

Michael Crichton used this sort of situation as the basis for his novel Next – the main storyline is based upon the case of Moore v. Regents of the University of California, in which Moore was treated for cancer by a Dr. Golde, after which Dr. Golde developed a cell line of T-cells from Moore’s tissue samples. This cell line netted Golde Ø110,000 a year and 75,000 shares in Genetics Institute common stock, while Moore got nothing.

Woman charged with DWI for letting friend drive drunk

How about a revision to the Election Code that a candidate for public office must be have a record clear of DWIs for five years?

As for the defense attorney’s comment that “We don’t have the expertise, we don’t have the training,” he’s sort of correct here.

Keychain fobs are availble with built-in breathalyzers. Anyone with a fourth-grade education can determine if the number that comes up is above or below 0.08, which is the current legal standard for intoxication – if it comes up over that, you’re too drunk to drive.

Embudo Canyon fire 100% contained

Notice that these fires almost always seem to start on public land – another case of the tragedy of the commons.

This is just like the Bosque Fires of 2002 – government officials at all levels (local, state and federal) doesn’t let people go in with chainsaws and axes to chop up the dead wood lying around. Then when that wood catches fire, those same officials talk like this was an “act of God,” when it was an easily-preventable condition.

From KOAT-TV (Albuquerque Ch.7)

City Launches Free Website For Local Businesses

Here’s the site, which I found after a Google search.

I leave it to you, the voters and taxpayers of Albuquerque, whether or not this is a desirable use of City funds.

Police Arrest Couple After Kids Miss School

What this looks like is a simple paperwork screw-up. Rather than just fixing the error, the Los Lunas School District are playing jack-booted thugs here in filing charges against the Chavez family over this. Yet the people running the government-owned-and-operated daycare-indoctrination system think that they deserve more of our cash?!

From KRQE-TV (Albuquerque Ch.13)

Dangerous fire season ahead

So instead of letting people chop up that dead wood, we’re told by “our betters” that we can’t have campfires and our backyard barbeque parties have to be restricted. Why again do we keep these people on the payroll?

No wonder the Chavezes wanted their kids out of the Los Lunas Public Schools . . . Why is that this sort of thing doesn’t seem to happen much if any with private schools, or amongst kids that are homeschooled?

But if this kid had fought back and injured one of his tormentors, well, then, he would be the guilty party, just like Casey Heynes in Australia. At least that’s what the Ruling Classwipes will tell us.

From the Weekly Alibi

A racist joke from the Secretary of State’s Office?

This doesn’t look like ignorance at all. Someone in the know put together the names of two black legislators, then added in “Jefferson Davis” for kicks.

This looks like some senior staffer, part of the Madrid / Vigil-Giron clique, who is getting ready to quit the office, wanted to take a parting shot, and have it attributed to Secretary Duran.

From USA Today

Romney: On jobs, where is Obama?

That’s an easy one, bozo – he’s busy stumping for the federal takeover of the healthcare industry that he cribbed from your state-level plan in Massachusetts.

Gadhafi’s rule relying on wavering tribal support

See the next article . . . .

From the McClatchy DC desk

Libyan rebel leader spent much of past 20 years in suburban Virginia

Here we go again. Haven’t the goofballs residing in the Imperial District (of Columbia) learned by now the folly of this?! Let’s see – Iran, 1953, Chile in 1973, Iraq in 1979 – and now Libya.

Cue the theme from The Empire Strikes Back.

Thanks to William Norman Grigg, owner of the Pro Libertate blog, for the heads-up.

From Talking Points Memo
