So Much Action in the Roundhouse .... zzzzzzzz

OK, in the last few days we've heard some music, a short comedy performance and lots and lots of memorials being discussed here at the Roundhouse.

Libraries, they're really cool ... Albuquerque's west side is a good place to be ... Whereas, whereas, whereas ...

Actually the most excitement today happened just a couple of minutes ago when House Speaker Kenny Martinez got booed (good-naturedly) after suggesting (jokingly) that the House meet this Sunday afternoon. (That's Super Bowl Sunday in case anyone doesn't know.)

I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but I heard some speculation from a Roundhouse regular that made me wonder. Could it be that things are moving slow on purpose, to stall until Rep. Ernest Chavez, D-Albuquerque and/or Rep. Phillip Archuleta get well enough to make it to the session?

Probably far-fetched. After all, last year during the 60-day session, a lot of us were complaining that nothing happened in the whole session until an hour or so before the end.

So until then, here's to libraries and here's to the West Side ...

(Things might perk up next week if the Rules Committee holds that racetrack hearing. My story on that is HERE)
