So, that would make you the ghost of Christmas Past, right?  (Aug 26, 2014 | post #26)

Except the video shows him paying. Oops; missed that one, did you? It's okay, so did FAUX News.  (Aug 21, 2014 | post #6)

Dave and busters Abq

I wonder if they are doing a two-story one, like one of the Phoenix-are locations, to save on the exterior footprint.  (Aug 13, 2014 | post #2)

One dead, three injured in lunch-hour shooting in downtow...

There is a reason why I, as a special education teacher, and my fiancee, a pre-med student going into trauma medicine, won't be staying in NM. The crime here is unbelievable. And for the people defending Albuquerque, please explain this: http://www.areavib es.com/crime-compa rison/albuquerque, +nm-vs-new+york,+n y/ And this: http://www.huffing tonpost.com/2014/0 8/03/americas-most -dangerous-states_ n_5639194.html  (Aug 9, 2014 | post #3)

Doctor visit means hundreds of miles for some vets

Once again, the VA cannot force doctors to live in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to treat it, chances are pretty good that you'll need to be willing to go where the doctors are.  (Aug 8, 2014 | post #64)

Heh, I'm prepping for my new gig, as a full special ed. teacher. There is an irony that cannot be ignored, in that my old assistant principal got me an interview at a school I never applied at, and was offered the job. So now I'm teaching at that school which is the one I dropped out of. Come full circle, The Force has.  (Aug 1, 2014 | post #35734)

Family dog dies after rattlesnake bite

It's simple. Reptiles cannot be infected with rabies, hantavirus, bubonic plague, etc. When they eat an infected animal, that instance of the disease is gone. Want to increase the disease in your area? Kill the snakes and enjoy the disease.  (Jul 19, 2014 | post #6)

Ebay Social Media Backlash Gains Momentum

I love the "they raised the fees by a minuscule percentage, so no I can't afford to make my living selling crap on an auction website!" complaints. Here's a hint: IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE A SOLE SOURCE OF INCOME.  (Jul 16, 2014 | post #9)

Student: Expelled From College After Gay Marriage

However, if the school rules violate legal rights, then I could see where a conflict could begin.  (Jul 14, 2014 | post #6)

Family blames City of Rio Rancho busted pipes

I would disagree. There have been plenty of reports of copper leaking in the middle of spans due to pitting/deteriorat ion causing pinhole leaks. The dirtier the water supply, the worse and/or faster the corrosion. Here in the desert, that is a real problem. PEX (Cross-linked polyethylene) is reliable, expands and contracts under pressure/temperatu re, flexible (so, less need for joints), etc. It's been used for decades overseas. Really, it's only downside is that it can't be used in direct sunlight, as UV exposure can make it brittle.  (Jul 13, 2014 | post #66)

Family blames City of Rio Rancho busted pipes

Because AMREP *literally* started Rio Rancho. They retain mineral rights over all of the land, and while they got out of the home building business, they still own and sell a huge portion of business/industria l land up here. I'm sorry, but this is not exactly new. Time Magazine published an article on November 10, 1975 titled "Justice at Rio Rancho," in which they covered the deceptive tactics AMREP used back then. I'm not on AMREP's "side," but it is still a responsibility of any potential home buyer to exercise their due diligence when considering *any* property.  (Jul 12, 2014 | post #64)

Family dog dies after rattlesnake bite

If it was indeed Crotalus scutulatus, chances are high it was transported there, as it is a good distance from their natural range. Also, I hope this doesn't lead to a witch hunt like people did with stingrays after Steve Irwin died.  (Jul 12, 2014 | post #4)

Doctor visit means hundreds of miles for some vets

As a matter of fact, I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology, minoring in Sociology, with a heavy emphasis on post traumatic stress disorder. And the onus for treatment is still on the individual You can either choose to treat it, or withdraw and refuse to treat it. But bear in mind that the VA cannot force doctors to live in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to treat it, chances are pretty good that you'll need to be willing to go where the doctors are.  (Jul 8, 2014 | post #18)
