New Mexico, of course, has been inhabited continuously for ~1,200 years by indigenous peoples (Pueblo cultures) with their rich traditions, but is today a world much influenced by money tied to the US military-industrial complex, and to the nuclear weapons industry; i.e., but this is an industry in sharp decline! Perhaps as compensation, elements of the US federal government are advocating for the creation of a national nuclear weapons park, located partly at Los Alamos. As reported by the Los Alamos Monitor on June 15, 2012, "U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today introduced legislation that would designate Manhattan Project sites around the country as a National Historical Park. U.S. Senator Tom Udall is a cosponsor."
Thus, a national nuclear weapons park may become New Mexico's answer to the Alhambra.
