Today in history

    It would seem that the New Mexico judicial system isn’t exempt from the Inspection of Public Records Act [IPRA].

    The NM Foundation for Open Government [NMFOG] has the details on how to submit an IPRA request, including a sample request in PDF format.

    I would prefer that if a new B5 film or TV series were to be produced, that instead of casting new actors in previously-cast roles, that the new actors be cast in entirely new roles, like Roddenberry did with Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    Reboots are very rarely as good as the original — the only rebooted series that I can think of as being better than the original was Ron Moore’s 2003 Battlestar Galactica.

    That’s OK — I already have them, and read them years ago.

    I just don’t want to see B5 go down the same road as the Marvel comics line — rebooted umpteen times into near-irrelevance.

    What ever happened to all of the business and cash flow that the (State-subsidized) film industry was going to bring to New Mexico? How long are we supposed to wait for thsat one to happen?

    And wasn’t spending piles of cash on the welfare state programs, as pushed by Martinez (the Medicaid expansion), going to boost the economy as never before? Still waiting for that one to actually happen, too.

    At least the brewery owners aren’t soaking the taxpayers.

    Facebook has been slow and sluggish lately. Had to crash Firefox three times and reboot my laptop once last night because of this.
