Signpost’s Man on the Street
Q “Which era of New Mexico history is of particular interest or fascination to you?”
"My family is from Texas. What impresses me is that when the Anglos settled in New Mexico they were able to do it with a lot less bloodshed than they did in Texas."
"Chaco Canyon! I mean who, what, where, and why? ... and where did they go? It's like the Atlantis of New Mexico."
"The Spanish Colonial days along the Santa Fe Trail. Places like San José, San Miguel, and Villanueva still observe old family ways, traditions, and the isolation. Even the form of Spanish they speak goes back to Spain; they're descendants directly linked to Coronado and other Spanish explorers."
"The science-fiction era. That whole thing with Roswell—there have been multiple sightings in the open spaces. There's something that the aliens like
about this area."
"The Long Walk of the Navajo to Fort Sumner—the thousands of men, women, and children involved, the hundreds that died along the way—has always intrigued me."
