Morning Fix: Ujima - Collective Work and Reponsibility

  • Local luthier dies - rest in peace Lorenzo Pimentel, maker of magnificent guitars and beautiful music.
  • The Daily Beast chronicles the story of E.J. Montoya, a student at Albuquerque's Native American Community Academy. NACA creates community (and ujima) for all students, even those with struggles at home. 
  • Will the fire marshall really close down The Pit?
  • Do people really eat gingerbread houses? Better not nibble if yours is from Whole Foods.
  • Coco posts on predatory addiction machines and unicorn sales - coming soon to Albuquerque.
  • Albuquerque author Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez takes on the made-for-TeeVee script of her novel The Dirty Girls Social Club as racist Afro-dectomy (among other things). 
  • Today is the third day of Kwanzaa. Join me in recognizing the principle of ujima by thanking all the volunteers who make Duke City Fix and so many other Albuquerque community endeavors possible!

Muchos gracias Barelas Babe. Your frequent posts are one of my reasons for hanging out here on DCF. 

RIP Sr. Pimentel.

Dear Babe,

I got in trouble today with my other half because I had to read EVERY SINGLE LINK you posted. Phenomenal morning fix indeed.

Yours in near-sighted squinting at the screen,

Just a note here to apologize for misspelling Sr. Pimentel's last name - it has been corrected thanks to Ron da Bomb's sharp eyes.

But you get bonus points for the word luthier.
