The Lessons of Manny

What lessons?

Even though the story of Manny Aragon sometimes seems to be used as a Faustian cautionary tale about the abuse of power at the state Legislature, few at the Roundhouse seem genuinely interested in making state government more transparent.

My story in Wednesday's New Mexican about Aragon's fall and its effect -- if any-- on ethics legislation is HERE.


Speaking of legislative fun and games, right before the Senate recessed, Majority Leader Michael Sanchez announced he wouldn't be doing any House bills because, he said, at least two House committees were refusing to do Senate bills.

This could blow up into a full-fledged hissing match -- or it could all blow over and fizzle out by noon. We're a little early for a complete meltdown.
