Recently, KOB News reported that the DingleBerry Express [1] has shut down, at least temporarily, due to COVID-19 hysteria -- https://kob.com/albuquerque-news/art-other-services-suspended-as-covid-19-spreads/5683537/ ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The City of Albuquerque continues to adjust services to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. "It's very serious and important that we all as a community work on some of this," Mayor Tim Keller said Public transportation will begin operating on a Saturday schedule, starting March 28. The mayor also announced Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART) service would be suspended on March 28. "The ART route, that whole thing will stop this weekend," Mayor Keller said. Never mind that the DingleBerry Express (some call it "Albuquerque Rapid Transit" or "ART") isn't anything more than an overpriced remaking of the Central Avenue "Rapid Ride." If you look at video clips and photographs of the DingleBerry Express busses, you can see "766 RED LINE" and "777 GREEN LINE" on the top of the busses' front ends. Just like on the "Rapid Ride" that preceded the DingleBerry Express. In fact, the "Rapid Ride" "Blue Line" (Route 790) still exists, and still uses the same sort of buses that the "Red Line" and "Green Line" used before the DingleBerry Express was created. The best case that we can expect from this is that the ad hoc demolition derby along Central Ave [https://duckduckgo.com/?q=ART+accident+Albuquerque] will be put on something resembling a hiatus until at least Easter weekend (Friday, 10 April 2020), as that's when the Governor's "shelter in place" order is supposed to expire. "The local 66 route will continue. That's a part of the Saturday operating schedule." So Albuquerque's Number One rolling bad neighborhood and disease vector continues its operation. Just wonderful. As for city parks, Mayor Keller said they will be open but playgrounds will be off limits. "The state is asking people not to go to parks, there is an exception I believe for exercise," Keller said. "We are officially closing all our playgrounds." The mayor said the Albuquerque Police Department can enforce the governor's stay-at-home order. That last paragraph there is what separates Albuquerque's First Crook Tim Keller [https://mikewb1971.wordpress.com/2017/11/19/the-keller-defense/] from his freelance comrades. Mind you, this schtick of Keller and Lujan-Grisham isn't new in any sense. It's the same attitude displayed by French King Louis XIV when he said "L'etat, c'est moi" ["I am The State," in other words, "My every utterance is law."] and had the phrase "Ultima Ratio Regum" ["the final argument of kings"] cast onto the barrels of the cannon fielded by the Armee royale francaise -- "Do what I tell you, or my guys will point this cannon at your home and light it off."
