A few old Jim Terr commentaries.


by Jim Terr

(Published in "Prime Time" seniors newspaper, March, 2000)

To me, faith in God, belief in a higher power or intelligence, is not a matter of faith at all.

Rather, it’s a matter of logic. It’s so obvious that virtually every aspect of the natural world (and I’m including in that the “spiritual” world) is so much more complex, so much more intricately designed than we will ever understand, that it seems obvious that humans and human consciousness are just a speck in a much vaster system.

Even if you consider “evolution” to be the explanation for some of life’s intricacies, the natural processes utilized by evolution are so complex and wondrous as to similarly escape anything near full human comprehension.

(continued on Opinion Page)

"A day without an update or recommendation from Jim Terr is like a day without sunshine, a night without stars, a party without guests, a pond without frogs, a dog without fleas, a deer without ticks."

-Gershon Siegel, publisher, Sun Monthly (Santa Fe)

Public service message for “free lance creatives”

When submitting a public service message idea to the New Mexico Department of Transportation, please follow these simple guidelines: DON’T DO IT!!!

Take it from me, a guy with a fairly good public record of creative work (including the VERY long-running “Toss No Mas” jingle.  I submitted an idea which arguably, years later, resulted in the popular NMDOT “Don’t Text” video,  “DNTXT: Deadly Conversation”.  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwta1bxyLGw

When I made the Department aware of my earlier submission, and gently suggested they pay me what I had requested as a creative fee in the first place, they politely declined, based on technicalities**, while not actually denying that my idea may have likely resulted in the current campaign.

This is the highly principled, morality-in-government, “do the right thing” Martinez administration, by the way. So, until further notice, and until they decide to do the right thing, my suggested guideline for  submitting ideas remains: DON’T DO IT!

        - Jim Terr 2014  / email bluecanyon2 – at – juno – dot – com

** and asking ME – legal expert that I am not – if I can let them know of any statutes contradicting the technicality they cited!!
