Los Alamos Daily Post

This morning on the KRSN AM 1490 morning show, Gov. Susana Martinez accused Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard of breaking her campaign promise to voters in Los Alamos with regard to driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants (House Bill 606.)

Garcia Richard is on record during her campaign for favoring the repeal of the current law, which grants driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, saying “It’s a bad law that needs to be changed.”

Thanks for your informative column.

Thoughts from a – hopefully – Enlightened Skeptic
By Ralph E. Chapman

To listen to the pundits before the election you would think that anything could have happened last Tuesday when we all went to the polls.  

The mainstream media was emphasizing just how close the election was going to be and that Mr. Obama was potentially in grave danger of becoming a one-term president.

If you listened to the conservative pundits you were assured that good, as they define it, would win out over evil; some suggested it would be a rout with Gov. Romney getting over 300 electoral votes.

As an aside,
