What's going on, Albuquerque?

Not sure why but thinking of those thugs who boot cars in private parking lots really irks me. Makes me want to completely avoid the businesses who hire them.
Also, terrific news about the Esperanza bike shop. Richard Rivas had been doing something similar there in the years leading up to his death, and I'm so happy to see that his dreams are finally being realized.
The city needs to lease out centralized parking meters so there's a receipt for the customer who is using parking lots - and the parking lots themselves need to be paved and marked at a regular interval.
About these microbreweries creating tons of jobs if only the limit was changed -- c'mon - its 25 cents per six-pack - at the usual cost of $6-7 per six pack for the local stuff, that's noise - I doubt La Cumbre will see 3 times the job growth just because of a slight tax reduction, but our DWI programs will suffer. (Let's see - 10,000 additional barrels * 15 gallons per barrel * (0.41 -0.08) per gallon = $49,500 - that sounds like 2 jobs per brewery to me.) Look, if they got the reduction for the beer they sold at their business(es), that would make sense - it would be a huge operation - presently, at $4/pint (16 oz) - 5000 barrels * 15 gallons/barrel *128 oz/gallon / 16 oz/pint serving = 600,000 servings/year * $4 = $2.4M year. That means, per day, 600,000 /365 = 1643 pints per day would have to be sold on premise. That would be a kick-ass huge bar, at present consumption. Anyway, this is a serving-tax reduction scheme, that won't benefit anybody but the owner, and will cost our DWI programs at the statewide level.
Way back in the early 70's, when the South Broadway Cultural Center was just a very low budget library, there used to be a self-help bike shop there. There would usually be someone there who knew how to use basic tools and the basics of bike repair to help out. I was fortunate enough to be able to avail myself of the tools and help when I was learning how to maintain and repair my own bicycle. That experience was instrumental in shaping me and my future.
Just asking: If someone puts something on my car, does it belong to me at that point?
If so, am I allowed to take that item with me, or even destroy it?
