Fourth of July Alibi Distribution
You can't ride public transportation, but you may read this NuCity Publication
In order to give New Mexicans enough free time to properly celebrate America's independence from Britain by drinking, shooting guns, and lighting things on fire, all government institutions and many businesses are closed on Wednesday July Fourth. The offices of Weekly Alibi are closed... except the Circulation Department. We don't take holidays.
While the majority of this week's distribution will take place on Thursday the Fifth, readers will be able to find fresh, crisp copies of the latest Weekly Alibi at select locations. Here is a selection of places to go tomorrow when you absolutely must have i.27 of the Alibi, featuring interviews with former New Mexico Governor and current third-party presidential candidate Gary Johnson:
Frontier, Whole Foods, UNMH, Mannies, Isleta Lakes Bait shop, Defined Fitnesses, The Range Cafes in Albuquerque. Many of our boxes along Central Ave. in Nob Hill and Downtown will be stocked on Wednesday July Fourth as well. Those include boxes in front of the Albuquerque Transportation Center, Flying Star #1, Century 14 Theater and, of course, the former Report Station art-box in front of Weekly Alibi's offices. -On that note, the deadline for submitting your idea for transforming an Alibi newspaper box into something beautiful, scary or otherwise is July 19th.
Angry pedestrian speaks to drivers
It's great to be here at a cool paper in the cool part of town.
There's only one problem.
Every morning I park my car about seven blocks from Weekly Alibi headquarters and mosey on over.
I have to cross the street at something called a “roundabout” that has been placed on Central west of 7th St. My only recollection of roundabouts springs from movies where hapless American tourists become trapped in them while driving.
The stupid traffic impediments in question have cross walks clearly marked with yield to pedestrian signs.
I've been here nearly three weeks and only two vehicles have yielded to me thus far. There are a million ways to die and I don't want to catch it in a cross walk.
If you see someone in the crosswalk, in particular, a large, unshaven man slinging a camera bag, stop. If you run me over,
I won't be happy (and possibly dead.)
Thank you and be safe.
