•    15,000 seats in the New Mexico Bowl already sold to Universities of Arizona and Nevada.  However their fans most likely aren't coming.  In fact, crowd expected to be a record low.

    •    But the parking lot might be full!  UNM plays NMSU just across the street later in the afternoon.

    •    The historic KIMO Theatre will show "No Country for Old Men" next Wednesday at 7:00.  It's free!  Partly filmed here in Albuquerque, NCFOM won 4 Oscars in 2008.

    •    Police officer run down by shoplifting suspect and son in Coronado Center parking lot.  Expected to make a full recovery.

    •    NM Business Weekly announces annual Best Places to Work in New Mexico.  Interesting.

    •    Channel 7 takes "a hard look at city take-home cars."  They didn't find much.  Still, it beats their story on plugged-up toilets.

    •    That slow-moving casino construction project at Louisiana and Central is scheduled to open by Memorial Day.  I'd like to take a bet on that!  The building will house 700 slots.

I hope this morning's headline wasn't too misleading.  I don't know what I was thinking...probably getting some interference from a dream about Sarah Palin playing Monopoly.  I loved writing for you this week.  However, doing the Morning Fix requires keeping track of late news stories.  The ABQ Journal, for instance, starts posting new headlines after midnight.  I guess I could blame today's "free parking" line on that sinuous spaghetti-like time warp that visits in the early morning hours.  Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the wonderful Fixes this week!  I'm excited to go to the KIMO next week to see that movie on the big screen.  And for free parking--does anyone know why the city isn't allowing free parking in nob hill or downtown this year?

I'm curious what Monopoly piece did Sarah Palin use?  A moose, rifle ....?

If I recall correctly, that "Best Places to Work" deal was a write-in contest.  Whoever got the most write-in votes won.  Easy to rig in your favor.

Being an alumni of UofA, it sounds like scoring a free ticket is the ticket, just so they could have more warm bodies in the stadium.  (I wish it was warmer, though...)  Go 'Cats!
