The earnestness of being important

My fellow Capitol Report New Mexico columnist, former State Sen. John Grubesic, observes in today’s column:

Ninety-five percent of the people in that building think that they are the most important people in New Mexico (myself included).

Ninety-six percent of the people outside of that building would have a tough time naming who represents them in Santa Fe and 97 percent don’t care.

As a citizen and political activist, that depresses me, but as a brand new (temporary) state employee spending more waking hours at the Roundhouse than at my house, I am most amused.
