UNM booted Gathering of Nations after long-simmering feud
Think of it as a bad marriage and a divorce too long in the making.
That seems to be the mutual feeling between the Gathering of Nations and the University of New Mexico, which unceremoniously terminated the contract for the annual event May 5. Both parties acknowledge that friction between them goes back many years.
The question now is whether the kids, in this case the local economy and the Hispano Chamber of Commerce, take a big hit.
