Condemnation Denied

City officials suffer setback in fight over Bosque land

Last week, the city's attempt to condemn the last privately owned patch of the Bosque and preserve it as open space stalled when a judge ruled the property—125 acres located on the west side of the Rio Grande just north of Montaño Bridge—was outside Albuquerque's municipal limits.

Thin Line

The velvet touch. Hey guys, next time your sweetheart goes in for a PAP smear, thank a trial lawyer for keeping the lust demons at bay. At least, that's how you might interpret President George W. Bush's latest verbal blunder (or was he serious?).

Letters

It is distressing and disgusting to witness the blatant hypocrisy displayed by Rep. Heather Wilson's ads taunting her support for the Medicare Reform/drug benefit Bill approved by Congress last year. That is the one which, days after its passage, we found out that the Bush administration had suppressed its own staff reports warning that the cost would be a "mere" $150 billion more than reported to Congress.
