For the news of the week discussion, Dowd and I discuss the Air quality in the Four Corners. Environmentalists keep harping on the air and methane, but what do groups that actually study the issue have to say? NM’s unemployment rate recently dropped to 4.9%. What is happening with that? Eddy County is the latest New Mexico County to adopt “right to work.” A New Mexico judge recently made a momentous decision on education spending deeming the system “inadequate.” Does the judge know what she’s talking about? Is she just legislating from the bench? What do the data say? Finally, Dowd recounts an issue of corruption in New Mexico. Finally, Paul and Dowd remind listeners about the upcoming luncheon with Don Boudreaux.
