A PROCLAMATION

As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on April 15, 2013, in Boston, Massachusetts, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, April 20, 2013. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixteenth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.

BARACK OBAMA

Thank you Governor Martinez.  You are the real deal for all New Mexicans:

And such a sparkling clean improvement over Bill Richardson.

New Mexico passed a law during the recent legislative session allowing an owner to have his or her dog accompany the owner to an outside dining area at a restaurant.  Governor Susana Martinez has signed the bill and it will become law in due course. There are some details about the new law and the Governor’s signing of it found here. Which brings us to a question. Now that doggies can dine with their people, will their people be able to dine with their canines at a Doggie Diner? And how might that look?
