The Daily Word in Sosa, Luhan, Johnson, Balderas, the state fair and trout

The Daily Word

Influential New Mexican civil rights leader, former NM Supreme Court Justice, World War II fighter pilot and all around chingón Dan Sosa Jr. died at age 92. He passed through the gate while residing in the same home he was born at, an adobe home in Las Cruces built by his abuelo in the mid 19th century.

Over at the local daily, Winthrop Quigley writes lovingly about New Mexico icon Mabel Dodge Luhan and her inimitable influence on American intellectual and cultural thinking.

Former New Mexico Governor and Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson took a serious, foreign-policy related stumble while visiting with the folks at MSNBC.

The New Mexico State Fair comes but once a year; now it's here, now it's here.

Our state's Attorney General, Hector Balderas, wrote to the US Department of Education yesterday, asking them to protect students following the sudden closure of for-profit college ITT Tech, which had a campus in Burque.

Netflix new Western, "Godless," began filming in the land of enchantment this week.

Meanwhile, Thomas Lee at the San Francisco Chronicle says a "demonstration city" to be built in New Mexico faces "long odds."

The economy of Milan, New Mexico may suffer because of the Department of Justice decision to phase out private prisons across the United States.

"Roylee Luna of Albuquerque caught and released a 22-inch lake trout while fishing the river below Heron Dam on Sunday. He was using a black woolly bugger."

Weekly Weather Report

Week of Aug. 30-Sep. 5

Clouds have been rolling through the metro area all day, so there's seemingly a chance of rain this afternoon. Yesterday it was the same situation but someone decided not to follow through with the rain so we all just had to watch it pass us by. Maybe someone will follow through with the signs that they give today. Tomorrow will be about the same, so we have that to look forward to. Things are going to start to heat up on Friday with a high of 86 degrees Fahrenheit, so don't throw your summer wardrobe in the trash compacter, yet (though advised by The City Fashion Council). Next week will be sunny with mild temps, almost like autumn really exists. But of course it does. We aren't all bodies floating in goo being prodded at by reptilian aliens.
