The 'Real World' is Not a Cross-Country Race

Hanna Skandera tells us, in a recent Albuquerque Journal guest editorial, what should have been an inspirational and heart-warming story about her glory days in track, when she trained for months for that one big cross-country race at the end.  She came in second.  It’s implied that the rest of them were ranked-and-filed as, I assume, winners and losers?

There are two…

Hanna Skandera’s Reforms Cause More Than 'Discomfort'

Education Secretary-Designate Hanna Skandera recently wrote an editorial to the Albuquerque Journal stating more untruths, vague ideas, and plenty of blame against those who are questioning her initiatives.  She suggests that there will be some “discomfort” during her period of reforms.  I suggest that discomfort isn’t the problem; what we’re fighting against is the…

How coloring my hair changed my life

When I came back to America after a very rough trip through Europe, I was virtually destroyed mentally. I thought I was an awful person, I had no respect for myself, and I absolutely didn’t love myself. I won’t get into why I felt this way, but it is important to my story. I struggled constantly with my self-worth. I would talk down to myself. I told myself that I was ugly and, while I knew I could be a contributing member of society, I didn’t want to be. I just wanted to stay in my room all…

Chasing Dead People

The wife, the boy and I headed east in search of ghosts this weekend.



My family, on my mama's side, settled out in Quay back at the turn of the century. My grandad and grandma met at the schoolhouse there, that has since been re-purposed as a community center and is now seemingly unused.





Judging by the playsets outside, it hasn't been used in at least 20 years.…

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

The Pornotopia Community

It's pretty amazing how much work it is to put on a porn festival. The 3rd Annual Pornotopia Erotic Film Festival takes place in eight days according to the countdown clock on our website, and I continue to be grateful for all the individuals and organizations making Pornotopia 2009 possible.



Tickets are about to be printed, Pornotopia T-shirts are being designed, flyers are being distributed, sponsors are preparing… Continue

all's fair...

Ah, the fair. It's the yearly melting pot that brings Albuquerque and New Mexico together in the name of puke rides and funnel cakes. Horses, cattle, adorable bunny rabbits and artwork are hauled in from across the state. We identify with each other culturally through these things. It's one of the oldest methods of social engagement and definition. It smacks of the childlike excitement at the prospect of cotton candy and mechanical rides; it's tied strongly to ideas of discovery, or observation… Continue

Heights and Loathes

Sunday is traditionally house-cleaning day at der Garrisonhaus, and these days there's lots less acreage to cover now that we've down-sized living space. Unfortunately that means we gave up the washer and dryer provided in the larger apartment and must now use the community laundry rooms.



Cripes. I hate picking up after other people, man. It's like our neighbors just moved here from the Pleistocene epoch, when people wore mostly dirt. Why must I get elbow-deep in somebody else's… Continue

Rejuvenated on top the Hill of Tome



Today I climbed the hill of Tome joining hundreds of faithful to see the three large crosses.



I was out of breath and my weak legs kept sliding on the loose rocks. But on my way up I met this man who was carrying a heavy cross on his shoulders. He climbed the long steep hill with his cross and when he saw me taking pictures, he made a point to stop to talk to me.…

Time to Celebrate Persian New Year!

No Rooz is almost here! That's Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring (technically, the exact moment of the vernal equinox; this year, it's March 21 at 5:44am). I grew up within a sizable Iranian community in Milwaukee, and this was the social event of the year, hands down. There would be one or more huge parties with everyone dressed to the nines (and those Iranian ladies can get fancy, let me tell you), tons of food,… Continue
