Fall In The Duke City

I love fall in Burque. It is the time of year when you leave in the morning wearing a jacket and head back home without it. I always associate fall in Burque with Balloon Fiesta and the intoxicating smell of green chile roasting. There are so many more things to do in the Duke City this time of year. I thought it would be cool to ask our regular writers and moderators what they… Continue

Gay Community Forum

Recently I posted a blog about gay hate crimes and bullying that resulted in some lively comments. That was very good.

Now the City and UNM is stepping up to the plate. Today KRKE News featured an article on a gay community forum, the link is below. It was good of them to announce that UNM has a support system in place but beyond that there are others like New Mexico AIDS Services (NMAS) and their under 21 group, Equality NM, and other events that can be found through Common… Continue

Pornotopia is censored again?! Really? Seriously?

The City of Albuquerque's highly restrictive zoning regulations have effectively banned the festival from all potential venues and censored all new erotic speech from our city.

ABQ Poets Against War: A Beginning

I asked Elaine and Demetria how all this started. I received the following explanation today.

--The DitchRider

It began innocently enough. Three of us sat at the old oak table over a simple meal of pasta with homemade pesto. We had come together to relax on a Friday evening and enjoy some good conversation. At the table were Demetria and Elaine, two poets and Daniel, an Environmental Sociologist. Before long our conversation took an unexpected… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Stewart S. Warren... Flutter of Communication

Leaves are about to fall. This is a poem you really need to read before they do...because, as he says, "Leaves are the words of trees / whose chosen work is remembering."

Stewart S. Warren, writer and performance poet, was born 1950 into the affluent southern society of Tulsa, Oklahoma where, Stewart says, he was raised by slaves and all night gas station attendants.… Continue

Seeking Burqueños who have done the Bataan Memorial Death March

I'm on an info gathering mission about the Bataan Memorial Death March held at White Sands Missile Range. Have you done the march? If so, I'm interested in your overall experiences, whether you were a team or solo, if you ran or walked it, how you trained, etc. At this point, I don't even like to mention that I'm considering doing the march, because I know only what I've read on the official website and… Continue

Colorful Fall Veggie Hash, Roasted Chicken, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy

My daughter’s 3rd grade class has a garden. Friday, we were able to buy swiss chard from their harvest. Big, bright green leaves. I came home with a bag and thought, “What can I make with this?” I know how to do the basic sauteed chard thing, but wanted it to be a little more gussied up. We had come over the summer to water and weed, and I felt protective of it–I did not want that bag of swiss chard to become forlorn and fuzzy in the veggie drawer.

First I peeled the leaves from the… Continue

Recovery Cat 10.16.2010

The 1992 campaign exemplified the shift of United States political coverage from platform information and traditional press to what it is today: a character and celebrity focused popularity contest...
