In response to the election of November 8, 2016, I’ve decided to start up The Mercury Messenger. It is the next rendition of a column I’ve been writing in New Mexico about politics, culture, human rights and the environment since 1971. The column started in The New Mexico Independent and versions of it have run in Century Magazine, the Albuquerque Journal, the Albuquerque Tribune, New Mexico Magazine, The New Mexico Independent online, and the New Mexico Mercury, online. While the New Mexico Mercury is still seeking adequate funding to reinvent itself, the Mercury Messenger will be a forum for my column offered as a direct newsletter, and on this website.
V.B. Price has lived in New Mexico since 1958, mostly in Albuquerque’s North Valley, writing poetry, journalism and non-fiction. His website is vbprice.com.
