Albuquerque is blessed to be located in a fertile river valley – the only fertile river valley for hundreds of miles around. But agriculture here has its detractors – especially when it comes to the topic of water use.
A conversation the other night was typical and led inexorably to comparing water for agriculture, especially evil alfalfa, to water for urban uses, like our hero the microchip.…Continue
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.
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.

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…Continue

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…Continue
NOB HILL--Something happened yesterday afternoon. I thought I owed it to myself to watch Ted Kennedy’s endorsement of Barack Obama, and Obama’s speech in response. After all, every news commentator on TV was talking about the event. Well, it brought tears to my eyes.
