Everyone's a Lobo - Even if you don't have the mtn. network

In light of the Lobos starting off their season undefeated - I'm reminded why I don't like television. Since August 27, 2008 - UNM Lobo games have been broadcast on channel 616 on DIRECTV CHOICE or with a subscription to DIRECTV's Sportspack.

I'm a fan...grew up watching the Lobos on channel 13...listening to games on 770 KKOB...wishing I could go to Coop Camp - Michael Cooper was my first favorite NBA player as a kid. Anyone from Burque knows what Lobo basketball means to the city. We fans can be fickle. Harsh. Stubborn. Mean. But we love our Lobos.

The business decisions of cable and satellite television are beyond me. I'm sure there is some analysis out there that says UNM and the television company's make money on the deal - which in turn leads to better facilities - better recruitment - something about outreach to fans across the country - blah, blah, blah...but right now, I don't care. I can't turn on my television and watch my Lobos.

Lobo's are 19th in the country. Awesome job and congratulations guys. I'll see you at the local bar.

Q-bags - hee hee

Before I chime in on this, I must say I'm all for reusable bags. It's a good idea. Why not? But again, this Q thing upsets me. Pro-environment does not have to be synonymous with pro-Q. I refuse to accept it even though I'm forced to pay for it, see it on billboards, airport signs, street signs, city run television shows, radio ads, trash bins, etc.

On the other hand, if a business has a sticker saying "Soy de Burque", or "Support Local Business, Support Burque" I'm in. Anything but "the Q" or anything else city officials try and brand me.

The website says these bags are free. Nothing is free - we as taxpayers are paying for this campaign propaganda. Funny someone decided to get rid of term limits and announce his run for re-election this past weekend. Little did I know I'd be paying for his campaign. Maybe he could continue the green cliche to include "the Q - so green we got rid of term limits so we can now recycle our politicians". I can see the new billboard now...

Soy de Burque supports an environmentally fiscal city government. Not q-bags.

There are some bags on the website for sale - they're not free, though I wish they could be. Seems I can't find the magic tree that grows free durable recycled plastic bags for the general population. The bags on the site are made from canvas..

The article:

Reuse in the Q

Let's put a stop to wasteful plastic bag use!
plastic bags

The City of Albuquerque and local retailers want to partner with you to reduce a major source of pollution - plastic shopping bags.

According to The Wall Street Journal, people in the United States use 100 billion plastic shopping bags a year. An estimated 12 million barrels of oil is required to make that many plastic bags. Unfortunately, only 12% of these plastic bags are recycled.

The rest end up filling landfills, littering streets, and -- even worse -- harming our wildlife, who often mistake them for food.

Click to vote for your favorite reusable bag design.
Skip the Plastic - Choose Reusable

There is a simple solution to this problem:

* If you're buying just one or two items, skip the bag altogether.
* If you're buying more, use a reusable bag!

The City of Albuquerque plans to provide free reusable bags to those who make the commitment to reduce their plastic bag usage.

But we need your help to make it happen - please pledge to do your part, and voice your opinion by casting your vote for your favorite reusable bag design. We'll tally the votes, produce your favorite, and distribute it to Albuquerque citizens.
Business Owners

If you’re a business owner, sign up to support this effort. We'll send you signs that will remind your customers to bring their reusable bags, and announce your involvement in the Reuse in the Q program. Your customers will know you're committed to protecting the environment and reducing our petroleum use, just like they are.
