The last entry was intended to be about the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 (the Terrors), and the fact that Jemez Pueblo has decided to change history a bit to make it appear something to celebrate.
For 300 years New Mexicans have celebrated Fiesta on or about September 15. That celebration is in honor of the return of the Spaniards, peaceful re-conquest by Diego De Vargas without firing a shot, the tribes heaving sighs of relief that normalcy could now return.
However, I digressed.
Instead of talking about the terrors, and the Jemez Pueblo's surprising new view of the end of them, I wrote instead of a different sort of revisionism..... the modern revisionism by State Officials in complicity with Lottery Authority officials fraudulently advertising a 93 million dollar jackpot which was actually a 55 million dollar jackpot (93 million if you allowed them to collect interest on it and trickle it out to you over a 30 year period, which isn't a jackpot, at all, but rather a 55 million dollar lousy interest savings account). I was perturbed when I learned that this 93 million dollar winner we NMers were thrilled about will actually see 36 million.
Thieves, scoundrels and liars, those officials who misrepresented their product to the ticket buying public.
In any case, sometime I promise to tell you about the Pueblo Revolt and the terrors. Meanwhile, if you'd care to get a general overview, you can get it from my webpage with the chronology of SW history. Scroll down to 1680.
