• The Alibi defends Downtown clubs as Mayor Chavez works to eliminate all-ages shows where alcohol is served. We also call out the Party Patrol, which is accused of violating civil liberties. Former Alibi staffer Norma Jean Thompson eulogizes her former lover Hunter S. Thompson. Intern Simon McCormack is assigned to prank the city’s new helpline, 311. Staff Writer Jessica Cassyle Carr spearheads the first Quiz and Puzzle Issue. And finally, at long last, an edition devoted entirely to fish sticks. Someone had to do it.

Best Haiku About the Alibi:
So very much time,
And so many typewriters.
The monkeys did it.

Steve Bishop, 2005

• The National Poetry Slam comes to the 505, and Albuquerque’s team emerges victorious.

• ABC Family shows up in Albuquerque to shoot the teen drama “Wildfire.” (It’s about a girl and her horse.) The show spends four seasons in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and Algodones, beating both “Breaking Bad” and “In Plain Sight” to the punch by three years.

• The old Gaslite Motel on Central gets razed.

• Hurricane Katrina strikes the Gulf Coast in August.

• FEMA drops almost 100 traumatized New Orleans evacuees off in Albuquerque, and the city scrambles to provide them with basic services.
