The point of voting
By Steven Robert Allen
How many elections have you participated in where your single vote decided the outcome? The answer is probably zero. Yet we have had a few ties here in New Mexico for local races in the past. Our state constitution requires that the outcome in such situations be decided by a game of chance.

If you’re a registered Republican or Democrat, get yourself down to the polls tomorrow to vote in the primary.
After all the attention on Arizona’s SB 1070 (and the political gains for the state’s Republicans talking about the law), immigration became a hot topic in N.M.’s election.
Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, the Dems’ contender, said she opposed Arizona’s plan to have law enforcement check the immigration status of anyone violating any law or ordinance in the AZ.
The Republican candidates for governor opine otherwise.
Pete Domenici Jr. says we need a state law similar to Arizona’s to standardize the process in New Mexico.
Allen Weh says he would sign a bill like our neighbor’s if the Legislature in Santa Fe passed one.
Susana Martinez says law enforcement should be allowed to ask for documentation when arresting someone.
Janice Arnold-Jones says we must secure the borders, and she will uphold the law.
Doug Turner says technology should be able to help stop illegal immigration, and that the federal government should be responsible for it.

The Alibi Air Hockey Table Has Been Grabbed
By Nick Brown [ Fri Feb 19 2010 5:06 PM ]
This week, we ran an Alibi classified ad offering up our the air hockey table to the first person who could haul it away. We got about a zillion calls and now it’s gone. Sorry to everyone who didn’t get here first. It was really huge and took up our whole back room, so it’s kind of nice to have it gone. Our back room was packed with so much junk you could barely move in there, much less play air hockey. Farewell, air hockey table.
