On Thursday, Amazon released its short list of 20 cities for its second headquarters, and - shock of all shocks - Albuquerque isn't on it.
Of course, that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.
Some cities that made the list are Chicago, Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Denver Dallas, Austin, Indianapolis, and Washington, D.C.

I've been a reporter, writer and editor for 37 years. I'm dedicated to honest, fair and hard-hitting reporting. I'm not conservative or liberal, but am just a reporter who tries to get to the truth at any given point in time. I don't believe in pulling punches or being a lap dog because that serves no one. A free and aggressive press is essential to human liberty. That's why the Founding Fathers put a free press in the Constitution. So on this site you'll get a variety of news, fearless opinion, analysis, humor, satire and commentary. It's kind of like a free-for-all. My motto is "Without fear and without favor." But good journalism takes time and money, so I hope you will contribute what you can to these efforts by clicking on the "Donate" button above. I could use your help. Thanks, Dennis Domrzalski.
