It's almost like shipping coal to New Castle to joining the crowd praising you.

It has been too long since I've read the deft of phrasing of Gwen Roath.

I've especially missed the revealing analysis of Gary Jaramillo. Gary's peeling off the veneer on the doings of the 'powers that be' shows us the reasons for Socorro's decline.

He helps see how the 'power that be' are 'strip-mining' this once prosperous town.
