Stabs A Woman, Then Walks?

Posted on March 3, 2010 at 1:00pm 2 Comments

Is anyone else angry about the verdict in the so-called "Starbucks Slaying?" The one where the guy admitted he tracked down and stabbed his ex-girlfriend in public at ABQ Uptown, in front of witnesses, because she dared to throw a cup of hot tea at him when he confronted her? You can read more about it here, if you have a subscription to the Journal.

He was aquitted of second degree murder… Continue

Do you ever wonder why editors at the Albuquerque Journal make the news decisions they do? Do the editorials sometimes make you shake your head or throw the paper down in disgust? My former Albuquerque Journal colleague Denise Tessier and I are trying to unravel some of the reasons many readers are so unhappy with the city's only daily paper in a new media criticism blog called Please come check us out for thoughtful, informed media critiques!

Read This If You Own A Car and Park It In Albuquerque

I want to tell you about something that happened to me. But first, let me frontload my sad tale with a giant dose of self-flagellation to ward off the criticism that I know I probably deserve.

I know that getting a parking ticket is bad and wrong and not paying that parking ticket is even badder and wronger. I was a bad and wrong person, specifically in the area of parking tickets. If my dad is correct, and getting parking tickets is a sign of bad character, then I am truly rotten and… Continue

A Call For Clarification From the Hipster Weather Guy

Posted on April 2, 2009 at 6:52pm 16 Comments

Has anyone else noticed the new weather guy on Channel 4? He's a bona fide meterologist and all, so props to KOB on that. But what drives me insane is the three different ways he pronounces his name (there may be a kids and I are still debating).

The Hipster, as my kids have (perhaps disrespectfully) taken to calling him, is named Michael Kelting and he pronounces his last name in these three key ways: Kelting (regular), Kyelting (slight slowdown in the middle) and Kel-TING… Continue

Hi Tracy, My name is Zana Morris and I'm doing a research paper on the death of Luis Jimenez back in 2006. I noticed that you wrote a few great articles about him, and wanted to know if I could have your email address to interview you. I found this page through google, your help and time would be greatly appreciated! My email address is, and if you are able to send your email to that address I would be very grateful! I will only ask a few, short questions. :)

Hi, Tracy, Sorry for late reply it was a rough end of May. I do not have any Visla dogs. Whilst at the hospital waiting for mom to come out of surgery my brother in law updated my page with my approval. He had these dogs from an email. I think they are all showing their teeth in a funny grin. They are cute though. I have labradors. I do not go to dog parks because my chocolate lab loves to chase balls and the puppies love to bite his legs. He in turn bites them. It cost me $300 with my sisters puppy. I now keep him away from potential sharp biting puppies as I can not blame him really.

Just wanted to say that I admire your hutspah on the parking article.
It seems as if a big point was missed in that discussion - the weekend inaccessibility to pay the fines was unfair.

I love getting to see your excellent reporting now on NM Independent, especially education issues. You are a real asset to our community with your honesty and keen eye.
