The New Yorker takes on APD

In this week's issue, venerable magazine The New Yorker takes a close look at the failings of APD, in "Your Son is Deceased." The article is gated, but here's a taste:

In Albuquerque, a city of five hundred and fifty thousand, the rate of fatal shootings by police is eight times that of New York City. Renetta (Torres) vaguely remembered hearing about many of the deaths in the local…

The Sunday Poem: Renny Golden

I knew about Renny Golden long before we met. I had read her first poetry collection, back in the 1980s, because the other poet with whom she collaborated on that book had a daughter who was a good friend of my youngest daughter—the intergenerational webs that encircled and uplifted us back then.

Burque Music Scene: Memphis P. Tails

It's no secret that I am a major blueshead.  When I want to hear some scorching, in-your-face, screaming blues guitar, I go listen to the Memphis P. Tails.  Many members of this band have come and gone, but the mainstay has always been guitarist Darin Goldston.  This is one hard working band.  Whether playing blues festivals or Molly's up in Tijeras, they never…

A Landmark on I-25 South of Town is Coming Down as I type....

If you've ever headed south on I-25 from ABQ, you may have seen it.  At the second exit for Belen, there is......or was......a large water tank on the west side of the highway with a huge Belen High School Eagle painted on it.
