Morning Fix: Dogs Sniff, Bullies Pee, Lawyers Sue

    •    Salamander sniffing dogs see duty in the Jemez Mountains.

    •    High school bullies pee in classmate's bottle of hair gel and don't tell him for days.  Sure he is suing.  Still I can't help but stare at his hair…and it sure looks good.

    •    Art is largely unrecognized as a business, yet it contributes $300M to Albuquerque's economy!  Over 12,000 locals are said to be employed in "creative occupations."

    •    The ever-vigilant news hawks over at Channel 4 alert the city to the dangers of fallen leaves"A little fall leaf looks so innocent…" they warn.

    •    City Councilor Debbie O'Malley, who was also recently elected to the County Commission, thinking about keeping  both seats. 

    •    Albuquerque cop sues three other APD cops after they shot him with a stun gun and laughed about it while he attempted to break up a fight at Maloney's Tavern downtown.  City says, "No witnesses, no reports, and no evidence."

    •    JetBlue is coming to town.  Will offer non-stop service to New York's JFK.

    •    BMW plows into a man's living room. Nobody was hurt but the car, which landed upside down inside the house, might need some work.  And yes, alcohol is suspected.

    •    Bank of America customer gets so pissed off irritated, he breaks out the door and windows of his bank, then calls 9-1-1 on himself.  He should have joined a credit union--better service with less anger.


    •    Governor plays ball…will set up insurance exchange.

I know a soldier that got hit by a silver oak leaf and became a kernel.

The lesson: don't drive at night. Don't be home at night. Don't bank at night. Flying at night is OK.

I attended one of the Arts and Culture economic development meetings yesterday.  Really interesting and compelling stuff.  Albuquerque is doing pretty well arts-wise, but there's definitely room for improvement.  Among other things, we need to secure more federal grants, graduate more artists with postsecondary degrees, and unify the arts community under a common brand.

But the economic impact brought about by arts events is huge - and that doesn't even touch on the economic impacts of a higher quality of life.
