From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
Dec. 30, 1912: One of the officials in the annex of the Capitol has a curious clock on his desk. It is about 5 or 6 inches high and has two hands, the minute and the second hands. There is no face, however, and it requires a mathematical mind and an eye to observe the hour of the day. “You haven’t much of a face on your clock,” said a visitor today. “No,” he replied. “But the clock’s tick-tick all day is great company for me. Moreover, beauty is only skin deep, and the hands of the clock are graceful and delicate.”
Dec. 30, 1987: Although New Mexico was not among the list of finalists vying for a $4 billion supercollider atom-smasher project, officials say the state still benefited from entering the race. Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., confirmed Tuesday that New Mexico was not among the eight states chosen ... as finalists.
