Driving the Turquoise Trail from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, I stopped in Madrid (pronounced
MAY-dreed MAH-drid) for coffee at the Red Door Cafe. As I walked in, a young woman behind the counter was addressing a group of old-timers sitting around with their newspapers and cigarettes.
Young Woman: You’re kidding, right? You don’t actually mean that, do you?
Old-timer: I’m dead serious. I think he’s great.
YW: Seriously? You think George W. Bush is great.
OT: Absolutely. I mean, just look at the guy. He’s got great hair.
YW: What?!? Who cares about his hair?
OT: I tell ya, if I still had hair, that’s how I’d want it done. That man has got a great head of… OF COURSE I DON’T LIKE HIM!!!
YW: I knew it. You can’t put nothing by on me.
