crime boss, gang leader and Senate president pro tem Manny Aragon gets indicted on dozens of federal counts. Santa Fe New Mexican has the story. The Albuquerque Journal has about 15 different stories in which to get lost and disillusioned.
I feel an ominous, big and very cold thing under the surface. Like an iceberg of construction contract scandal. This would mean that a much larger number of people are feverishly praying that their own little boats will be able to float safely around this.
The Journal got great quotes. From Senator Joe Cararro: "We hope it's not true," ... Then, referring to the cloud of scandal, he added, "We need to close ourselves off from this kind of perception." He says this with his eyes squeezed shut.
The Journal helps with this bit of closure, "...this brings to an end months of rumours...". Wishful thinking. Dusts-off hands and turns around.
