    I thought Alamogordo was a neat town the two or three times I passed through. It's not too far away from El Paso or Las Cruces and just up the mountain is the town of Cloudcroft, which has some cool (to me, at least) things to do.

    Don't know a damn thing about the paper itself. The ad sounds like it's your typical small-town daily where they want a young person to work 60+ hours a week for hardly any pay. But at least it's not Roswell.

    What are the odds of getting some UNM coverage there?

    Very good... from the AP Albuquerque bureau.

    You're much closer to New Mexico St, although from my New Mexico days, I remember the woman who was the SE there covering mainly preps.

    yeah, rebel... you're clear on the other side of the state. Might as well cover NMSU or even UTEP...

    That's what I meant to type, but had my head in the wrong place. Must be that Mtn. television channel brainwashing my good WAC mentality.

    Rebel, I understand completely. I HATE the Mtn. with a passion. It's the spawn of satan..
