Tahna has a good question. What do you mean? As a New Mexican, I'd sort
of like to know what *odd* opinions people cherish of our state. I'm
impressed you even knew it was a state--you wouldn't believe how many
people think we're part of Mexico :-) *sigh*. It's certainly true that we
have a *lot* of pawn shops, but here in Albuquerque, I don't think it's
because of Native American Jewelry.
