Spaceport development

Wal-Mart is coming to Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, and it’s all thanks to Spaceport America. That’s the premise, at least of an article in the Las Cruces Sun-News about new development in the town, not far from the commercial spaceport that will serve Virgin Galactic and other customers. Also headed to T or C: a speedway and a luxury golf course development. Is it boom times for the small town, part of a county with a total population under 15,000? One person said her husband was caution: “He doesn’t want it to get as big as Las Cruces or Albuquerque.” Las Cruces, for the record, has a population no bigger than about 80,000.
