Albuquerque city leaders are asking for $50 million in gross receipts tax revenue bonds to reconstruct the Paseo del Norte and I-25 interchange.
Boost it! Because it’s the right thing to do.
Yes to all
Though we’re not crazy about the Municipal Bond Question that gives $50 million to the mega Paseo construction project, the Alibi supports almost all of the other bonds on the ballot.

2012’s TV dead pool strikes early and often
Every fall, casual viewers and industry insiders alike engage in a little game. They try to guess which of the new TV shows is so bad or so badly placed (or both) that it will be the first to get canceled. If, for fall 2012, you put your money on CBS’ “Jersey Shore”-meets-“Ally McBeal” show “Made in Jersey,” then consider yourself an ace prognosticator. Less than four weeks into the new season, CBS executives gave the low-rated Friday night show the ax.
