Musings are for Wimps*

My Dad the ex-con just left town after a 6 day visit. He is the "survivor" of a 37 month bid in Federal Prison. It was really a glorified country club, albeit with a good portion of the members in green drab jumpsuits. He got out in 2005, and visits me and my beautiful family here in Albuquerque once or twice a year. It has been increasingly challenging in recent years. For some odd reason, I think part of the… Continue

Fixed Versus Free

Sometime in October as I was teaching my Freshmen, I said, "How 'bout this? I'll write the same essays that I assign."

So here is my Comparison/Contrast Essay

Fixed Versus Free

Having purchased it in 2006, my bike --a Gary Fisher mountain bike with a rear rack, pedals that I could clip in or just stand on, a small light, a seat bag with a set of tools, tube, and patch kit, and memories of rides through the Jemez, the Sandias, the Bosque, the Magdalenas, Arizona,… Continue

The Coming Lead-Coal Kerfuffle

In case you hadn't heard, tomorrow is the day Coal Ave. closes between I-25 and Washington for a $26 million improvement project. It's also the day that Lead Ave. becomes a two-way street between I-25 and Washington to carry the extra traffic.

If 4 lanes moving to 2 weren't bad enough, listen to this: the only places where left-hand turns will be allowed going either way will be University, Yale, Girard, and Carlisle.…

Recovery Cat 11.6.2010

In these difficult years, America has suffered from a fever of words: from inflated rhetoric that promises more than it can deliver; from angry rhetoric that fans discontent into hatreds; from bombastic rhetoric that postures instead of persuading. We cannot learn from one another until we stop shouting at one another -- until we speak quietly enough so that our words can be heard as well as our voices. For its part, government will… Continue

What You Want

I just finished teaching four sessions of a class on Broadway musicals for UNM’s Continuing Ed. I had a great time. One of the questions we left unanswered was the future of musicals.

The last few decades have been interesting for musicals. During the 1980s, Andrew Lloyd Webber dominated the Broadway landscape. In the 1990s, Broadway was desperate for something new until RENT came along. In the most recent decade, musicals have… Continue
