“Sodomy holds forth in Santa Fe (AKA San Francisco of the east).”
Yeah, Santa Fe has always been a blight on the state. I grew up north of Santa Fe, and always hated driving into town. Never felt that I would come away unscathed...
Moved out to Oklahoma in the early ‘80s and never looked back. And New Mexico has gotten worse over the years.
Loved the land/climate and some of the people, but could do without Santa Fe, Taos, and Albuquerque.
