• Popular ride-share, Lyft, can't catch a break in New Mexico: ordered to cease operations. But Uber gets to continue for now.

• Apparently NM is just too harsh. Actress Charlize Theron was afraid to die in apocalyptic weather here during filming last year.

• Great job conserving water, Albuquerque! Now it's going to cost you. Successful reductions in water use are causing revenue shortfalls, so expect water rates to increase 5%.

• APD confirms there is no lapel video of last month's shooting of 19-year-old Mary Hawkes. For an intriguing look at the APD excessive force saga, see what NPR On the Road has to share in their photo blog.

• Namaste. Inmates will now be offered yoga classes to help with rehabilitation "...on their path to self-discovery, healing, and ultimately into living differently."

Charlize Theron proves that to be an actress you don't necessarily have to be very smart.  Seth McFarlane reveals himself to be rather dim in that interview as well.   They come here to shoot a movie during monsoon season in the mountains and are surprised to find thunderstorms? 

And you can bet that Yellow Cab is who complained to the PRC about Lyft and will complain about Uber.  Those people want to protect their monopoly.
