February 19, 1942-February 19, 2017

Memorial above the former Santa Fe internment camp, site of the Casa Solana neighborhood
Its been exactly 75 years since Executive Order 9066 put a hundred thousand innocent people, many U.S. citizens, behind barbed wire. So let's not be too uncritical of present attempts to write broad reaching executive orders aimed at some of our most vulnerable. And yeah, Casa Spencer-Sachdeva sits on the site of that old barbed wire. It is a sobering thought.

On another topic, next Saturday is the annual bike-motorcycle rally at the State Capitol. Make yourself seen and heard. When you don't, bad shit happens to you. Bicyclists will rally at New Mexico Bike N Sport and ride to the Roundhouse. More details to come.
