I really enjoy Tina Fey but I don't understand how people can just call her perfect when she relies on socially acceptable racism so much.

And this is exactly why, out of all the Harry Potter films, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince is my favorite.

New Mexico Veterans' Memorial to Commemorate End of Vietnam War

Press Release [ Thu Apr 28 2016 9:44 AM ]

On Saturday, April 30 beginning at 10am the New Mexico Veterans' Memorial is hosting a special commemoration at which Veterans from all branches of service who served during that war will share their memories and stories of wartime. Others who served, or those who have non-combat memories they wish to share will be welcomed.

Forty one years ago Americans watched their televisions as reports of the fall of Saigon signaled the end of one of the most challenging military events in our history. April 30 is the 41st anniversary of the 1975 fall of Saigon that brought the war to its official end.

This year marks the 61st anniversary of the start of the Vietnam War, although regular U.S. combat forces weren't deployed until 1965. Direct U.S. military involvement ended in 1973.

Following the presentation in the Rose Garden that features over 400 plantings, all of which have significance in honoring various military events and traditions, the event will move to the Visitors' Center where refreshments and displays will be available to further engage those attending. A moment of silence will honor those fallen who are featured on the New Mexico Vietnam Wall.

Attendees may also visit the Vietnam War Monument that depicts a soldier saying goodbye to his comrade and buddy.

Special invitees to the commemoration are our Albuquerque Vietnamese neighbors. Bring the whole family to honor, learn and share in a day of memories and healing.

The program is co-sponsored by the City of Albuquerque and NM Veterans' Memorial Foundation.

New Mexico Veterans' Memorial Park is located at 1100 Louisiana SE and is managed by the City of Albuquerque. For more information on events and activities, please visit CultureABQ.com, or call 311.

Former ABQ Reporter Visits Page 1

Press Release [ Wed Apr 27 2016 10:30 AM ]

Gerald Moore, former Albuquerque Tribune reporter, will be at Page One Books at 4pm on Saturday, April 30, to talk about and sign his non-fiction effort, LIFE Story: The Education of an American Journalist.

The book is described as such: "Before Americans got their news from television, they got it from LIFE, the weekly magazine that set the standard for photojournalism. In LIFE Story, Gerald Moore, a writer and editor who worked at the magazine in the last glory years before TV made it obsolete, recalls the dizzying excitement and glamour of LIFE's fast-moving, powerful approach to spreading the news. Moore covered the major stories of the late 1960s and early 1970s: LSD, assassinations, the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago, the McCarthy campaign, urban riots, the My Lai massacre, and the beginnings of feminism. His story offers a wonderful look back at the good and the bad old days of journalism."

Moore joined the staff of LIFE at the age of 27. Before that, he was a philosophy student at the University of NM who became a nighttime police officer and then a reporter at The Albuquerque Tribune in the 1960s, both jobs teaching him the tools of his trade. At LIFE magazine, he was a leading reporter, bureau chief, and eventually an editor. When LIFE ended publication as a weekly magazine in December of 1972, Moore turned to freelance magazine writing. His articles appeared in People, Saturday Evening Post, Reader’s Digest, Families, Horticulture and other national magazines. Moore lives in Hudson, N.Y., and Chapel Hill, N.C.

Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Moore event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit [link].
