The Continuing Saga of Chelsea, Mary and Burque...

If you can excuse Chelsea Handler's smarmy over-smile... this is actually really cool. Thoughts?

This was the opening monologue on her show last night on E!, which airs locally at… Continue

Legislature Shifting Money Away From Schools



During the 2010 Regular session of the NM Legislature, three separate bills were introduced (SB208, SB255, and HB268), all of which attempted to take money assigned to public schools away and reassign it to the general fund. The net effect of each of these bills is a diversion of approximately $100M per year away from our schools. While SB208 and SB255 did not reach a floor vote, HB268 passed the House just prior to the session ending.



We need to let our… Continue

Won't You Be My (University Heights) Neighbor?

I haven't really gotten too involved in local politics here-- with the exception of doing my civic duty and voting (I realize it's not really the voting season, but just in case here's info on where to register).

Anyway, last month I attended the annual meeting for… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Greta Pullen... Two Poems About Eva Luna

"Eva was my Australian Shepherd, who had a big vocabulary in English and Spanish and invented jobs for herself in the absence of sheep."



A poet and novelist, Greta Pullen moved here from the San Francisco Bay area. She is senior librarian at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Ms. Pullen has given several local readings, including being one of the poets featured in the Maisha Baton tribute one week… Continue

Mom's In Town



Well, my Mom's in town for her annual visit to spend time with the grandkids. And there sure has been a lot of talk this past week about whether or not our fair burg is boring. So I thought i'd recap what we've been doing, if just to see how it measures up on the boring meter.



First, a little bit about my mom. She's been a teacher for 40 years, mostly in New Hampshire, with a couple of short stints in… Continue

With Robby at the Roundhouse



SANTA FE--One week ago my grandson had a day off from school so I took him up to our state capital to watch government in action. If this story seems less than timely (being one week old) don't worry, nothing has happened up there since. You haven't missed a thing.



Do you have trouble getting your kids in gear? Well, I don't know whether he was tired, hungry, or just plain unenthusiastic when he thought about our government, but somehow… Continue

Is Albuquerque Boring?

Last week Albuquerqueans responded en masse to a Mary McCormick interview on the Chelsea Lately show. The issue at hand? Whether McCormick dissed Albuquerque. She did, but then she…

Feedback for a Crosswalk

NOB HILL--It seems to be about a month since the traffic lights and crosswalks were installed and working at the corner of Central Ave. and Wellesley. For those of you not too familiar with Nob Hill, that is the corner where Kelly's brewpub is located.



At the time the city administration objected, saying more study was needed. Be that as it may, City Councilor Rey Garduño pursued a course of immediate… Continue

The Sunday Poem: James C. Burbank... Lamentation for the Body

How can a lamentation be so intriguing! This short piece ends with two of the more memorable lines in the English language. This a perfect Sunday morning poem.



Poet, erstwhile musician, writer, teacher, art guy, and Nob Hill denizen, I've been here since '81. I am a confirmed unbeatnik and Valley Rat. Write a poem a day, sing or play a little flute, or a…

Love in the City?

I don't want to sound like an angsty, emo, or desperate high school teen in this blog but I have been having mixed emotions about love lately. To clarify things, I am a 24 year old single hispanic female, never been married and do not have any kids. I see the latter fact a "success" and out of the norm for woman my age in this city, because a high percentage of my senior class in high school ended up pregnant, some with their second child. I consider myself a well educated, open minded, down to… Continue

Why you gotta do us like that, Chelsea?

I love the Chelsea Lately television program. I love Chelsea Handler's committment to furthering the careers of stand up comics. I love her sass. I love her tunnel vision- elevating the trite to utmost importance- Hollywood exposed as the high camp we know and love that it is. She… Continue

Accident on the Bike Boulevard a Warning



NOB HILL--As far as I know, this is not a tragic story. I peeked in the back of the ambulance and the bike rider was talking to the paramedics. He even looked relaxed...which is hard to believe considering how close he came to tragedy. His mountain bike was still lying in the street under the wheels of a Toyota SUV at the corner of Silver & Tulane SE. According to my camera clock it was just after 5:00 on a Tuesday two weeks… Continue
