Morning Fix: I Wish It Would Rain Down

  • Independent review says police shooting not justified. Police Oversight Commission rejects independent review; sides with APD. 
  • Still losing jobs in Albuquerque. Job fair listing here.
  • In related news, there's a clothing drive today for homeless APS students. Check your kids' closets - is there anything they've outgrown? Please donate if you can.
  • UNM has a new look. Give them feedback here.
  • In other higher ed news - just how many college campuses are in Albuquerque? Hmmm, I wonder how many of these have bloated administrations and are staffed with underpaid adjuncts...
  • Heartwarming political photo for enviros.

Kenny, depending on the time in the AM, the turn east onto Mountain from Broadway also leads to the entrances of AHS and the Career Enrichment Center.  At times, around 7:15 AM, there is a lot of congestion with students/parents driving to these locations from the Broadway/Mountain NE intersection.  There are only two entrances into the AHS campus and one of them is off Mountain Road.

I'm so very thankful that it rained!  You can't tell by looking outside now, but there were a few blissful moments last night when you could hear and smell the rain falling gently. 


I love that UNM is redo-ing their website--however, I doubt that it will be any easier to navigate.  Shouldn't their "search" button actually search?  I'm hosting a potential M.A. student in the History Department who said he searched "history department" and it came back with every department but what he was looking for.

Interesting to note that the APD officer involved police shooting was not justified.  The officer shot a man who was threatening suicide with a handgun.  The man never threatened the officers with the gun.  He was only threatening to kill himself.  He was shot because he would not put down the gun.  It was evident that he was mentally unstable at the time.  He was an Iraq vet who had PTSD.  The Citizens Review Panel got it right. It is a shame that APD did not find in the victum's favor and is protecting one of its own.

Krista - If you ever have issues searching a site use google's advanced search option.  You can enter the word(s) you are looking for and the domain you want to search.  I just searched 'history department' and and the very 1st link was


You can also just type 'history department' and it works the same.

ramon, I know how to use it.  I've been here long enough that I can find pretty much everything I'm looking for through trial and error.  but obviously for potential students, it's not the best.
