Chocolate Dude

I have driven by Chocolate Dude I don't know how many times and each time I say, "I need to stop there and see what they are all about!" Tonight I did. The inside of the place is really neat as you will see in the coming days. I tried an…

Builders and Makers: Poets and Laureates

Spoken and written language is largely how we communicate with each other and even with ourselves. It is an ability and capacity that we can easily take for granted - like breathing. We rarely pay attention to it or are thankful for it. We talk. We breathe. We listen (sometimes). We read…

Posadas, Refugees, and Politicos

As Barelas starts to ready for Las Posadas de Barelas (on December 19 this year), I've been organizing my preparations for this event.

"I just ran out of bull-shit"

"It’s hard to quarrel with that ancient justification of the free press: “America’s right to know.” It seems almost cruel to ask, ingenuously, ”America’s right to know what, please? Science? Mathematics? Economics? Foreign languages? None of those things, of course. In fact, one might well suppose that the…

New Mexico Book Tour — Better Late Than Never

During the 2008 presidential campaign, I spent six days in Albuquerque, knocking on doors all over town in support of Martin Heinrich, Tom Udall, and Barack Obama. I’m sure I only sniffed out a shadow of what the city and state have to offer, but I got enough to decide to set a political thriller there. During the 2008 presidential campaign.

Tomorrow, seven years after canvassing and phonebanking out of a red brick storefront office a block off Central, and…

Final dispatch APD Officer Daniel Webster

For the second time in just a few weeks, I got trapped in gridlocked traffic during the lunch hour today, as this city once again convulsed with grief from a violent gun shooting in a mass of vehicular traffic. As I was driving west down Lomas Boulevard, I could see the funeral procession of fallen APD…

El Día de Muertos

The Funeral Procession of Illiana "Lilly" Garcia

I checked the news before leaving work on Tuesday evening, and was sickened by the news that a four year old child had been shot in the head during a road rage attack on the freeway. I skipped out about ten minutes early, and noticed that traffic was backed up on Lomas from I-25 past…

James (Fooj) Fejer 01/12/50 - 10/21/05

My father James Stanley Fejer was born in Farmington, Ohio on January 12, 1950. He grew up on a farm. When I was a kid, I recall my dad telling me about the skies in Ohio. He described them as dull, polluted, overcast, grey, and smoggy. This of course was in contrast to the skies of Albuquerque, New Mexico,…
