Spencer: Dems Have To Learn To Win Elections Again

Upon reading former Sen. Jeff Bingaman's recent endorsement of Damon Martinez for Congress as published in the Los Alamos Daily Post, my first question was "Huh? What district?". Since I doubted Jeff would be blind siding our incumbent, I checked to see where Mr. Martinez is running and indeed, it is in District 1, Albuquerque. Ok, so not a big issue for those of us out in the Provinces. Except for dealing with those trying to mine District 3 wallets for the District 1 race.

But on a more serious note, I was disappointed that the best that our former Senator could

No one likes to experience home damage – it can be traumatic and costly, and it can even disrupt your entire life. But, when you do, isn’t it nice to know you have home insurance to help with the covered expenses and repairs.
 
Now, when it comes to taking advantage of your insurance benefits and filing a home insurance claim, are there certain things you can do to help things go more smoothly? There certainly are. Here are my five suggested dos and don’ts for filing a homeowners insurance claim:

Every so often, the Los Alamos Concert Association presents an instrument that has more name recognition than the musician playing it.

István Várdai, who is scheduled to perform here Jan. 21, is not a household name in this country (he’s Hungarian and a big deal there) but his cello is named for three famous people. 

The first famous name is Antonio Stradivari who is so universally known as a maker of fine string instruments that just saying “It’s a Strad” is enough to convey that

Fr. Glenn: Missing Class

This week’s uproar over the president’s reputed profanity (which he denies) in a private meeting simply highlights what seems to be an increasingly rapid downward spiral in societal propriety, courtesy and … well, just plain ol’ class.

Whether the president did say what is reputed, he would not be the first politician to use such crude language, and—sad to say—will likely not be the last.  Obama, Kennedy, Nixon, Johnson, Cheney, Biden … all have had vulgar comments recorded, and doubtless the list could go on.

While driving the road off of the mountain, the vista of the Sangre de Christo Mountains opens before you. It is a spectacular view in every season. Right now they are capped with snow that has somehow avoided us here in Los Alamos.

However well we know the sight of them, they are very far off. Even if we look at maps or fly over them on our way in or out, they remain distant. Even our own mountain remains transcendent, unknown.

A man named John was sent from God. He came as a witness to testify concerning the light, so that through him everyone would believe in the light. He himself wasn’t the light, but his mission was to testify concerning the light. The true light that shines on all people was coming into the world. (CEB, John 1:6-9).

These words speak a very powerful truth that is somewhat taboo in our culture today. This truth affects us all as it speaks of reality and addresses the figments of our imaginations.

Light is important to us, because it

The Tony award winning “God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza opened Friday night at the Los Alamos Little Theater.

“God of Carnage” presents us with four dislikable protagonists behaving badly.
