The Daily Word in abortion bans, Mayor Berry's re-election and the subtle charm of the lobstercycle

The Daily Word

Mayor Berry wins reelection with a historic majority of the vote. Of course, not everyone's happy about it.

Things aren't so clear in District 7's City Council race, though, giving Democrats some hope of reclaiming their former edge.

And even though the 20+ week abortion ban wasn't on the ballot, Pro-choice activists were out getting pledges for votes against the measure which will be decided by a special election coming up in November. An Albuquerque Journal poll shows that 54% of voters approve of the ban.

Meanwhile, fans of Breaking Bad have placed a cross near Walter White's death site in the North Valley, so feel free to drop by and pay your respects to a fictional drug dealer/murderer/bad husband and father.

One (made up but totally descriptive) word: Lobstercycles.

And for your "lost technology of our forebears" files: pneumatic tubes for shooting cats across New York. Also dogs, mice, roosters, guinea pigs, and monkeys. Because, why not?
