    "Pack of rabble" Steve? There are well over 6,000 signatures on the petitions. I would guess that the convention center will have an overflow crowd for this issue. The very fact that the road is there makes the preservation of the mesa so important. Historically, there have been trails and roads finding their way to Santa Fe. I'm certain that most of the travelers upon cresting the escarpment would appreciate the wide open, unspoiled views!

    I agree with all of the above letters. I live in Cedar Grove and have to pass by Tijeras which has an ugly mine there welcoming people as they come through the canyon. NM does not need another gravel mine and our water resources are scarce to scarce to expend on irrelevant businesses.

    I wonder if this pack of rabble would have reacted this way the first time that a road was planned to go down La Bajada.
