BB, thanks for the Kwanzaa info this week. I never paid much attention to it.


Albuquerque absolutely does have a Tia Carolina, Tia CathyRay, who dispenses wisdom & advice at the drop of a hat. I don't have a column so am forced to walk around buttin into other's business.

I too enjoyed learning a bit about Kwanzaa and totally forgot Powdrells had a 4th Street location, thanks for the info and reminder.

The segregation information looks important, Teresa, and I would like to use in research I am doing, but it is so obtuse (both the report and the census site) it evades me. "Least likely to be segregated" means nothing unless parameters are stated. New Mexico has the highest percentage of Hispanics among the 50 states, so what formula does one suppose is used to determine the likeliness of segregation? What constitutes a neighborhood?

We just had dinner at Mr. Powdrell's Barbecue House on 4th a couple of weekends ago. I personally love this place. The building, called the Samuel Shalit House, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
