Mayor Red Peril
Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank you for printing Mike Blessing’s delightful letter [“Eric the Red,” April 27-May 3].
Mr. Blessing’s misidentification of former Council member Eric Griego as mayor cheered me greatly, and his view of tax breaks for locally owned businesses as equal to advancing socialism as a state religion made me smile.
Further, his evocation of both the communist red peril and armed violence in response to an op-ed piece about taxes and restaurants in Albuquerque, N.M., made me laugh out loud.
Mr. Blessing’s histrionics demonstrate clearly why the Bernalillo county Libertarian Party has such a robust and dynamic role in New Mexico politics.
