Morning Fix - First, the Good News. Police Shootings 2010: ABQ - 9; El Paso - 1; Austin & Tucson - 0.

Albuquerque dominates the southwest in city-owned bullets interacting with its citizens.

But there is some bad news. NM falls to 46th in Kids Count rankings.

State loses out in Race to the Top casino once again.

Armed robbers steal Pomeranians. Police looking for man with a thin mustache and the word "LOCO" tattooed on each forearm.

APS considers suing state for failing to provide "adequate" education for its children.

Intel invents way to use light beams to replace copper technology. "...at these data rates one could imagine a wall-sized 3D display for home entertainment and videoconferencing with a resolution so high that the actors or family members appear to be in the room with you."

U.S. thinking of sending 1000 truckloads of plutonium waste to NM from east coast.

Yeah, G. Golden Crutcher, I was somewhat amazed that the news didn't bother asking--or even bringing up whether this family selling pomeranians from a van had a breeding license or not. Isn't selling animals from a van in a WalMart parking lot prohibited by the Have a Heart law? Poor little dogs--the were also feeding the puppies some crappy wet food from a plastic plate during the interview. I'm thinking they might have a better life with Mr. Loco.

Yeah, good old APD. Following the Arnaud Amalric philosophy of confrontation.

Who allowed for all these horribly toxic wastes to be "stored" here in the first place?? Where is our say? or maybe I should only speak for myself--where is my say? I guess this does make it easier to figure out my eventual cause of death though--freak accident or cancer...

"all the shootings this year are justified."

Yeah, it would be better to be at the top of the list in officer deaths.

Krista, most of us feel we'll die in a hail of APD/BCSO bullets before we become the 'Toxic Avenger'.

Somehow I doubt they were licensed breeders since they were trying to sell the puppies in various supermarket parking lots around town. She said her two female pomeranians got pregnant at about the same time--doesn't exactly sound responsible. She's also supposed to have a special permit for intact dogs.

There's just so much wrong in that story that it makes my head explode.

The 9-1-0-0 lead Albuquerque police officers have over their counterparts in El Paso, Austin and Tucson is way too lopsided to be a statistical anomaly. It must be a one in a millions probability, so if I were the mayor or the chief of police, I would find out why and take action. Where is Larry Barker and the other sleuths who love to report city work crews hanging out under a shade tree in a park. I guess the media is afraid it/they will have to resort to covering school board meetings if the police action dies down.
