Commentary: According to their website, "on April 5th, 2010 WikiLeaks released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad- including two Reuters news staff. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-sight, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded."


As a result, the U.S. is now charging Julian Assange with conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network. But even if he was part of the hack itself, who can rightly argue that the material he accessed should have been hidden from the public forever? In other words, did Julian Assange commit a crime or expose one? Is the United States seeking accountability for his actions or merely a way to eliminate the messenger? 

Las Cruces Event Was A Reminder Of Those Who Serve

Commentary: Last weekend, I played in the 2nd Annual Aaron Gifford Memorial Pickleball Tournament. 

It was fun. Met many enjoyable people from eleven different states, on two beautiful New Mexico spring days, and ran around a lot. Healthy exercise, and a chance for local pickleballers to play with referees and strict rule, and play game after game in the hot sun, even when they felt tired or dehydrated. There was even a court for beginners to try out the game and learn. If some of those folks got hooked, the exercise could improve their health and even their longevity. 

It was also a good event for a good cause. 

New Federal Proposal Gives Needed Boost to New Mexico’s Working Families

Apr 10, 2019

Commentary: U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich today joined Senators Sherrod Brown, Michael Bennet, Dick Durbin, Ron Wyden to introduce the Working Families Tax Relief Act (WFTRA), legislation that would begin to fix our tax laws to help working people with low-wage jobs make ends meet as they work to support themselves and their families. The proposal would strengthen the highly successful Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for working families, most of whom have children, ensure that millions of poor children aren’t left out of the Child Tax Credit (CTC), and boost the CTC for families with very young children.

Group Applauds House Democrats' Efforts To Restore Net Neutrality

Apr 10, 2019

Commentary: On Wednesday, April 10, 2019, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 232-190 to pass the Save the Internet Act (H.R. 1644). If enacted, it will restore the Federal Communications Commission’s 2015 Open Internet Order and bright-line net neutrality consumer protections. The FCC would be responsible for regulating the internet instead of allowing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to regulate themselves. Additionally, the agency would have the requisite rule-making and enforcement authority to protect consumers from harmful, discriminatory actions by ISPs.

Art And The Struggle For Justice

Apr 10, 2019

Commentary: The visual and performing arts have traditionally served as a means for political movements to communicate, but is political struggle a subject for art?

The subtitle of the art exhibition at the Southwest Environmental Center in downtown Las Cruces through April 30 answers in the affirmative: “The struggle is beautiful.”

This may not seem an obvious takeaway from the daily news. Climate disruption threatens natural systems that preserve much of the planet’s life forms, including us. Society remains organized through exploitative models of power and exchange, while organized labor continues to decline. Rates for alcoholism, addiction and suicide — measurements of societal despair — are on the rise.
