Truth or Consequences

PS: The little town "Truth or Consequences" was formerly known as "Hot Springs" (based on the mineralized hot springs every guest still can enjoy in a hot tub under the nightly sky even without wearing a bathing suit - a quite uncommon opportunity in the U.S.) The town took the name of the popular radio show "Truth or Consequences" in 1950 after the presenter, Ralph Edwards, had announced that he would broadcast his show from the city that was willing to ... weiterlesen...

A place to meet

shower-left.jpgear-plugs.jpg I learn to love these business hotels.

clinton-next-two-exits.jpg Which road are the Democrats going to take? After the debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama yesterday evening, six days ahead of the Pennsylvania Primaries, nothing has become less unclear than is has been for the last weeks.
