Last Saturday night, my wife and I went to the Lensic in Santa Fe to see…

The Lamestream Media - Part One

The gravest threat to this exceptionally 'great' country is not political correctness, but echo chambers. I have been reading the Albuquerque Journal my entire life. My late father saved a copy of the Journal from the…

The Art of Being Human

Recently, I was adding tid bits to the Abq Action Venue blog and I came across an amusing online site called, "The Art of Being Manly" which was fun and thoughtful, full of good perspective insights and fascinating podcasts. The concept of the whole manly thing was very interesting. Of course, I thought, "Was there really a need for such knowledge?".  I myself am a woman. Yet, this online site was fun, helpful to everyone and interesting. Isn't that what its all about?  One evening, I was in…

Living in the Land of Enchantment: 10 Things to do in Albuquerque

There are so many places to see and things to do around here, it's really hard to pick just one to write about! This week, I decided to write about 10 (make that 11)  things to do in the area. Technically, it's more than ten, as I fit more than one into each number. Next time someone tells you there is nothing to do in Albuquerque, direct them to this post! :)

  1. Ride the…

When Bowie Played Burque

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…

"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…
