construction city

Is it just me or does the entire town appear to be under construction? Sweeney Center's falling down, falling down, falling down. Then there's that mess over by DeVargas Park; the Don Gaspar area, It's crazy, yo.
I'm more and more irritated thinking about the county's takeover of the Guadalupe area and the state taking over Jean Cocteau. All this crap about needing to have the courthouse downtown. I mean, yes, it's a pain in the ass to hightail it down Cerrillos when you have to go to Muni court or the DMV but, you know what, you shouldn't have to do that more than once a year if that. Don't we want things downtown like restaurants and coffee shops and nightclubs and stores?
Read in the paper that in 20 years the commute from Albuquerque to downtown Santa Fe will take 2 1/2 hours. That is truly nutso. I guess we really do need a bullet train.
