on (semi-) small town status.
One of my favorite things about Albuquerque is the fact that I can take a working lunch at a local restaurant that's made good, expanding into even more cities and just happen to see one of the most prominent names in the race for Congress this term sitting there, eating lunch by himself. Guy just came in, ordered a sandwich, ate half the thing, got the rest boxed up and left. No muss, no fuss. No aides surrounding him, no focus group, nada. It was just totally refreshing to see. So much so that, even though I'm sure I creeped him out a little bit by staring at him a few different times, I never really wanted to bother him. So he just ate his lunch and went along his way. Good signs from a (semi-) small town.
