  1. It’s nice that we in New Mexico get to share this record in a vicarious way.

    We seem to be close to the bottom in so many other standings.

    Thanks for the great visual of some of New Mexico.

  2. I bet old Felix would be a riot to have at a dinner party. Just wait till the subject of the horrors of commuting came up.
    ‘So Felix, how do you get to work?’
    ‘Helium balloon for the first 23 miles, then I jump.’
    That would be a conversation stopper.

    sure, you have a great readers’ base already!
