A promise I am keeping...

Hey there Albuquerque Familia-

After about five years of doing community organizing work in Albuquerque New Mexico, I am officially taking a much needed break. Mostly I worked with the League of Pissed off Voters, which morphed into the League of Young Voters. In 2008 I helped to grow a new Organization called New Mexico Youth Organized. I learned a lot this year. Mostly I learned about myself.

My teachers along the way included my friends, family, colleagues and the… Continue

Shall The Big Three Get A US Taxpayer Bailout?

For 15 years I have watched as US automakers produced larger, heavier, more dangerous, less fuel efficient cars and trucks (trucks and more trucks) for the grossly over indebted American buyer. Detroit has done everything in its power to forget the lessons of the 1970's oil crisis or have ANY sense of environmental responsibility. They were making money hand-over-fist on Pickup Trucks and SUV's for people who didn't need them and couldn't afford them. Now, they are all on the verge of… Continue

Book reviews, week of Nov. 17

The Fire by Katherine Neville

(Random House $26)

We've waited for 20 years to find out more of the story of The Eight.

This global adventure about a 200 year old chess set, which alternates between the dangerous present time and the perils of the past, is full of riddles and puzzles. Intrigue, suspense, and great writing combine to make this is an exhilating trip through the history of ownership of the various chess pieces. Neville has given her readers a huge story which… Continue

Morning Fix: Can't Do That

I'm coming home, baby!

So, I haven't been gone for long, but holy crap, I am so excited to be coming back to Albuquerque for ten days. (Yes, yes, I moved. Personal reasons, blah blah blah. I've spent the last 12 years trying to live in Abq and periodically getting booted out of the city for one reason or another.)

But whatever, hell yeah, I can't wait to see the Rio Grande, eat some kick ass food, visit with friends, (go to my best girlfriend's engagement party!) and walk around downtown, Nob Hill, the… Continue

To kill a mulberry... and dump its remains

Right outside my bedroom window stands an enormous mulberry tree. In the spring a strong gust of wind will literally cloud the air with its pollen- dust devils of unstoppable sneezes, mere feet from my pillow. This summer we planted 3 replacement trees. Now, the fun begins: taking down the old tree, bit by bit- making room for the new trees to grow in place.

These freshly cut branches and non-mulchy yard detritus accumulate much faster than… Continue

Green Event Planning: considerations

As a budding green event planner, I've benefitted from attending / speaking with current green event planners that have paved the way. Some events addressed every element down to the types of soy based inks they used when printing. Other events didn't even consider putting out a recycling bin for guests. The following list outlines considerations when throwing an event that is 'green'. Please add comments / ideas so collectively we can make a robust… Continue

Share the Joy With the African Children's Choir

The African Children’s Choir has been traveling around the world and performing since 1984. They have been featured on American Idol, sung on stage with Sir Paul McCartney at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London, and played venues in every major American city. The group performances are famously poignant and striking whether experienced in New York City or small town Idaho. And now they are coming to Albuquerque to give us the chance to see something extra special while…

Introducing Tim O'Leary

OK, so he is just a dog and a rescue dog on top of that, which is kinda the point here. One of my wonderful companions of many years finally passed on last month. Paca, (yep, she was a rescue dog too and carried the acronym for People's Anti-Cruelty Association as her name), had been a great friend for about 15 years. When she passed on last month my other dog, Daisy, became increasingly lonely and subdued. I think I did too. It was… Continue

One of the best and most surprising effects of the election of Barack Obama has been an igniting in me to remain active in local and national politics. There is no excuse for apathy and passivity at this point. I will no longer sit idly by while a government who is accountable to its citizenry acts in opposition to the will of the people. I will learn/teach myself, with brute force if necessary, how to be a truly participatory citizen in a participatory democracy. I'm thankful that we have the… Continue

Boycotting Cinemark/Century and Blake's Lotaburger for support of Prop8

The Cinemark CEO gave approx $10K to support the passage of Prop8. Cinemark owns nearly all the theaters in Albuquerque. I don't care. Until the company recognizes what they have done and corrects it, I will not patronize their theaters. Here is the statement I sent them on their form for contact.

Based on the news that the CEO of Cinemark has donated approximately $10,000 to support the passage of the discriminatory… Continue
