The Not-So-Charmed Life of CABQ and Encantado N.E.

Heard the expression "short and sweet"? File this one under: "short and bitter."

It's the flash nonfiction tale of your City of Albuquerque tax dollars being repeatedly wasted, with subplots of zero communication between government "silos" & engineering/execution incompetence.
