January 2008 Stories (170)

Progress is slow...

Well, they've temporarily closed I-5, so we're currently hung up in Ashland, OR, enjoying a pint and bit of grub at the Black Sheep pub. We hope to be back on the road later today, but we just might be stuck here overnight. We're still planning to be in ABQ by Saturday. The weather has been terrible so far. We're driving through the middle of one of the Northwest's infamous winter storms.… Continue

Presidential Experience

I was only mistaken as a member of the Press Corps twice. I was given lots of smiles, and room to shoot. I stood, I listened, I shot and I cheered. I even had a banner clutched somewhere on my person that I wanted to wave around (but nooo, I had two cameras attached to my person as well). I had tears in my eyes when Bill Clinton was introduced. (No, I don't know why..)

Yes, I was there, at UNM, for Bill Clinton's speech.

It was…

Amtrak's New Digs

If you've ever ridden a train in or out of Albuquerque, you've seen the sad state of the cramped, worn-out Amtrak station down on 1st Street. For a town with a proud history of locomotive repair, the largest Harvey House by the rails (the old Alvarado) and some spectacular railroad boom years, this station was pretty tragic.…

A great day for batting cages and cyclists!

If it weren't so darn cold!

I am a fan of batting cages. And I say that knowing that I absolutely suck at them. But, there's just something about letting out a little unspent energy, or displaced frustration, by taking a full swing at a tiny little target with a baseball or softball bat. It really is quite a release.

SO, are there batting cages in Albuquerque? This town loves sports, so I figure there HAS TO be some kind of local batting cage.

Speaking of sports, while…

Hot4Henrich? Why the Hell NOT?!

Over at Salon.com blogger Glenn Greenwald is on a tear today eschewing the faux "bipartisan" mantra being spouted by a group of former Senators who may back a third party run by billionaire and NYC Mayor Michael Boomberg. In an update to his evisceration of this so-called "bipartisanship" he posted a video from our very own heart throb Congressional candidate… Continue

I Chew, Do You?

Luc is living in Las Vegas, New Mexico so I've been reading the local rag the Las Vegas Optic to get familiar with the area and feel closer to my son and stumbled across this video.

Every morning I take my huge silo of a cup to the cafeteria and fill it with ice, then I pop a cube into my…

Reforming the TIDD Gravy Train...Make that call!


we're debating presidential elections and hashing the movies, the State

Legislative Session is in full swing and many New Mexicans are only

thinking about the many issues currently being debated at the

Roundhouse. One of them is particularly dear to my heart.

Today House Bill 451 is being heard in the House Judiciary Committee at 1:30pm. HB 451 is a bill that would reform the state TIDD…

Fashion Sense

I consider my mother my fashion icon. She always looks fabulous and considering she is almost 80 years old, she's still hot stuff!

Shopping was more of a sport for my mother than a task. And interestingly enough, the 70's seemed to be her fashion decade. She had fabulous platform shoes, super hip denim, velvet and chiffon dresses, outrageous purses and an array of 'falls' or hairpieces. My mother was one of the only…

Jesus and Shapiro Speak in Parables for Revolutions' Free Speech Comedy Art Series

Why does Jesus curse? He was a carpenter, after all, and besides, his second coming appearance at Revolutions International Theatre Festival is made easier for us mere mortals when he talks like a real human being and not the Almighty.

Comedy Jesus, played by Troy Conrad, was preaching to the…

Holy $%@*!!! We'll be in ABQ by the end of the week!
