I can get the Albuquerque radio station KKOB on frequency 770 late at night.

Sometimes it is better then the local KFI 640.

It's important? Not a topic of idle or general conversation or discussed with wry smiles and humour but actually important?

The mind boggles!

The "heat" from a NM chile will vary from year to year.
Sometimes the red chile is hotter than the green or vice versa.

IMO/taste buds - I take the green chile over the red - no matter the season.
They have a peppery tang I just adore

Or Senators for that matter. Or presidents of the Harvard Law Review, etc. Big dummies, all of them.
Next up, does Obama prefer the softness of two ply TP, or the thriftiness of single.

Important enough that "Red or green?" is the official state question.

True. It's got to be green chile and cheese on hamburgers, and green chile and cheese tamales are hard to beat but when it comes to enchildadas, I think red is better. Really though for rellenos and grilled and in eggs, I like the poblano chiles most.

It's a chile to me, too. Give me an Anaheim or a NM #6...I really miss those rellenos.

Given the president's socialistic leaning - it shouldn't surprise anyone that he prefers red chiles.

He can have as many red or green chiles he wants, but it won't matter. Our tormentor-in-chief will not win New Mexico.
