Cover, October 12: “Martinez on Trial”

Say it Like T Jeff

Thanks for this in-depth discussion of the upcoming court case. The response (or lack of it) from the Martinez administration regarding information requests would be expected from an autocratic regime in, say, the Middle East or Central Asia. Here in America, we very correctly take press freedom to be vitally important.

Remember that Thomas Jefferson quote about newspapers and government? “... And were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”

Cover, October 5: “All the World’s a Stage...”

We Are Merely Players

Thank you Alex De Vore and the Reporter. ... We’d like to add one very important piece to your thoughtful article on emerging theatre here in Santa Fe. Last year the theatre producers got together and applied to the Santa Fe Arts Commission for a grant to create a one-stop, all-you-want-to-know website dedicated to theatre in Santa Fe. is up and running now, and we are growing by the day. We believe that we are stronger together and that includes growing our audiences here to realize what great talent there is in Santa Fe. Please browse the website and see for yourselves.

News, September 21: “Refuge and Respite”

Pain of Psych Probs

[SFR has] been propping up the false values of behavioral psychology for nearly three years. ... You coninue to act as if it were a legitimate healing modality. There is no social science in the diagnosis manuals DSM-III and -IV. Poorly trained practitioners rely on addicting their patients to meds from big pharma instead of offering quality care. As one practitioner said to me, “The corporate behavioral fiasco is a dark time in counseling practice’s history.” ... Humanistic psychology has been censored for 40 years.

... Let’s start treating the pain of psych problems with real caring and not cover up the symptoms.
