• Baby showers just aren't what they used to be.
  • The film industry likes us. It really, really likes us.
  • They're not going to like us as much if we turn into a dry well.
  • Tucson seems to have ABQ envy.
  • I think we all "learned a great deal" about Councilman Harris. Mostly that he's not above behaving like an ass.
  • Ghosts dig the pool at UNM. Maybe they're after-life guards.

"I told him that I am supposed to be handcuffed in the front because I am pregnant, and he told me he didn't care.” I love that she knows that pregnant women should be cuffed in the front. Who knows that?

People who get arrested a lot. Or who hang out with people who get arrested a lot. Here's another thing I like about the story:
There was no knife pulled," Alderete said. "He didn't know I had a knife until he searched me.”
Alderete said he had the knife because he was using it to carve the pig cooked for the matanza.


Okay, so you're carving up a pig you've just roasted...but when you're done, you conceal the knife on yourself. Who does THAT?

Does New Mexico proud.

In other news, Carlos Fierro gets 6 years for killing a guy while DWI but a guy who embezzles money from an Indian casino gets 50? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

Yes, it should be the other way around. I guess it turns out that money is more valuable than life. Go figure.

I do believe 6 years is the maximum sentence for vehicular homicide. Remember...it was the pedestrian's fault! But, consider this: if Fierro hadn't been drunk it's most likely he wouldn't have been charged at all and would be free as a bird.

Why would a rich suburb like Oro Valley (just north of Tucson) be jealous of how friendly we our with our tax incentives, when that city has given 4 major developers half of the sales tax for their strip shopping malls? Maybe they're jealous that we gave 70% of the sales tax revenue to WinRock.... (at least we're getting some apartments and an IMAX for our money...)

Since when were baby showers held at 9:30 at night?

Having it at night improves the chances of it showing up on Cops.
