    You really don't get it, Donald - you seem bright and intelligent. Yet, instead of getting involved in a positive way, you hang out here and post insulting comments to people that you don't care for.

    I'm not your boss, just someone that shakes his head when he reads your posts and wonders why you do this instead of doing something constructive and positive.

    I wish you well Donald.

    Just the satisfaction of being a decent person - that's all.

    BTW - Donald Coviello - you are more than entitled to your opinion. I'm simply asking that you treat others with respect.

    Donald Coviello - this is my real name, and I will ask you as respectfully as I can to please treat others here with more respect and courtesy. I value and respect everyone's opinion - yes, yours too. However, I feel as though you are hurling insults at anyone that disagrees with you.

    Please be more respectful.

    Thanks
    Dennis

    The interesting part of the Lost Souls' Room is the appearance that the New Mexican is in control. This cyber space is more of a filtered email network so that one never knows what others see rather than it is a published comment chat. There might be several program controllers but what get said here in this Lost Souls' Room is not "controlled" by the New Mexican. Consider it a app or a game played in cyberspace or consider it a NSA homeland security serious program. What amazes me the most is how easy I fall into believing that everyone here see everything I write.

    Brother Carbajal,
    I will guarantee Celeste makes more than $11.00 an hour and that her job was never in jeopardy. And as far as Frank's qualification for a job, I think telling Gay people at NewVisions apartheid center what gay things to do and what gay places to go are perfect qualifications for assisting our Mayor. I asked the Mayor to come to the neighborhood around Water and Don Gaspar and he didn't know where that was. Maybe there's a gay restaurant in the neighborhood that Frank knows and can direct the Mayor the the three blocks from City Hall

    Frank Cordero's job is to keep people away from the Mayor. During the open door session that the Mayor just had Frank's job was ordering the people who's turn it was to see Javier from one room to a seat in the hall then to stand by the door then into the room where the Mayor was. I mean it was silly how authoritarian he was about how to wait in line. There were four people beside the Mayor there including Frank and Spin Doctor Jodi McGinnis Porter to "handle' 24 citizen.
    $11.00 an hour is better than the $8.00 an hour the City paid 350 Santa Feans to work as a election clerk. Although it certainly isn't as good as the $200,000.00 a year that the City Clerk makes. And Celeste is only doubling up her work while the Mayor spends tens of thousand on redoing his royal office.

    Yeah, I agree, leave him alone. And $11.00 bucks an hour to do the work that Mrs. Montoya-Valentine has do two jobs for is not enough either! I met Mrs. Montoya-Valentine prior to the mayoral election and observed the work load she had to accomplish while the election cycle was in motion. I have to give her credit for putting up with the general public unpredictable emotions and roller coaster stuff, etc. Yeah, I think it is about time someone brought this cat to help her out. Every new administration regardless if it is a municipality, private sector, or federal level needs good administrative assistant's to get the administrative paper work in place.[beam]

    I met Frank Cordero on the campaign trail at many events (where he often did photography) and was always impressed with his talent, professionalism and discipline. The city is fortunate to have him. [smile]
