Alamogordo Daily News (Newspaper) - November 30, 2007, Alamogordo, New Mexico Opinion 4a Friday nov. 30, 2007 editorial delays at the Bridge Mexico pledges cooperation Long Waits at International Bridges connecting Mexico and the United states present problems for both countries. Therefore binational cooperation is essential in finding solutions to those delays. So it was Good to note that the new Consul general at the mexican consulate in Elpaso seems determined to make sure that cooperation is achieved. In a recent interview Roberto Rodriguez Hernandez said a the most important theme is Security. We agree with the United states on that Point. September 11 changed the strategies of both countries when it came to entry. But we need to look for More alternatives to expedite inordinate wailing times at the Bridges Hurt both countries economies discourage travel add to the pollution problem As vehicles stand idling in line and keep families apart. Rodriguez said that officials in Mexico City Are aware of the problem. But awareness and action Are two different things. Something substantive must be done to alleviate the delays.

Silvestre Reyes Del paso announced on monday that Field hearings will take place in december before the House committee on Homeland Security to discuss the wait times at the Bridges.

Economy along with the mexican and Canadian economies. But a recent Elpaso times analysis showed that Elpaso hits the longest wait times in the country.

Uhf a Udo Iii in int aliens presence sometimes still Felt in . By Jay Miller for the daily news Santa few of no. First aliens invaded new Mexico a Rose Parade boat and now they have taken Over the states tourism and Campaign. Suddenly aliens from outer space have become a bigger problem in new Mexico than aliens from South of the Border. Inside sources Tell me there is a move to declare space aliens illegal also. Or so it would appear from listening to those from inside and outside the tourism Industry. Some Are even calling for state tourism Secretary Michael Cerletti a head. Actually there is concern that Cerletti was abducted on a trip he thought was to Abu Dahabi. Possibly he was taken to the Mother ship and implanted with a Chip that put him under alien control. Sources inform me that the alien intent is to soften up earthlings by making aliens seem so commonplace that we wont give them a second thought when they come to take Over. My impression of the tourism departments alien Campaign is that it is a fun unique imaginative Way to catch the attention of a Public that is inundated with television cell phones text messaging blackberries and bluetooth. Its hard to Cut through All that clutter. Other Rocky Mountain states can advertise most of the same attractions As we do. And they have much bigger advertising budgets to do it with. So Here is a Way to attract attention to new Mexico a Beautiful landscapes. Put an alien in the foreground Riding a bicycle kayaking or inside the Capitol by Jay Miller golfing. We not Only get the Point across that new Mexico is enchanting we can claim to be the Best place in the universe to visit. Since the railroads came in the 1880s, new Mexico has been advertising its scenery history and cultures. And still about half the nation thinks we re a foreign country. It might be time to do something different. It has become embarrassing to say we Art from new Mexico Usa. Its mighty unique to have a context in which we can say we Are from new Mexico Earth. For those who complain that new Mexico a ads Benefit Only Roswell you should know that Roswell is never mentioned in an and. It does no to have to be. The world knows that the army air corps reported capturing a flying Saucer at Roswell making it Earth s ufos capital. In modern parlance that is called a Brand. Companies spend billions trying to establish a Brand. The government unwittingly did it for Roswell a free of charge. Roswell is beginning to Cash in on that Brand. And new Mexico is getting in on the act. And it fits. New Mexico officials have talked about branding the state As the worlds commercial space capital. Virgin galactic a Richard Branson has pledged to help with the Effort. The renaming of spaceport America is a step in that direction. Many other communities with space activity can be included in that theme. The alien and Campaign was managing to slip under the radar fairly Well until the Rose Parade float design was released followed by the announcement that our television ads have won a prestigious award from an International sales and marketing organization. But instead of bringing Praise to the state z tourism department the award has turned up the volume of criticism including from local tourism organizations in Albuquerque Las Cruces and maybe other cities. Evidently they done to see enough Benefit to their own communities. So lighten up new Mexico. No one likes a grouch. Many communities throughout the nation do quite Well with Light hearted celebrations. The Deming Duck races get More than their share of publicity because they re fun. Snobbery really does t become new mexicans. Its time to Stop the negative thinking and give the tourism department some credit for trying something new and different. And for having the courage to stand up to criticism much More severe than it deserves.
