Weekly Alibi
 Sep 20 - 26, 2007 
From the first sassy 12-page black-and-white issue in 1992 to this week's 72-page behemoth, the Alibi's been putting type to page for 15 years. We've got our dress all laid out for our Quinceañera. Say goodbye to Editor Steven Robert Allen as he joins the ranks of other former staffers in our "Where Are They Now?"
NEWS/OPINION
The Church of Scientology sets its sights on a big building Downtown. Only dirt stands between Albuquerque and radioactive waste. (P.S. Your regularly scheduled letters section will return next week. Peruse the Hall of Fame here instead.)
MUSIC
A festival of discovery! The third-annual ¡Globalquerque! lets you travel without discomfort or much of a budget. Plus, the songwriter from The New Pornographers spills his guts.
FOOD
There's something to be said for a little old-school kindness and top-notch customer service, like the kind you'll find at Oak Tree Café.
FILM & TV
Shot in New Mexico, In the Valley of Elah starring Tommy Lee Jones, is a war-weary mystery sure to stir up controversy.
ARTS/LIT
Ah, art photography, the tacit way for aristocrats to look at naked people. Twenty photographers examine Rose in 1x20 at the Downtown Contemporary Arts Center.

RSSRaw posts and updates from our writers with info too timely or uncategorizable for print. What, we said something stupid? Chime in, buddy.

The Daily Word In Pissing Kate Middleton Off, Dogs Dressed Up As Turkeys And A 6-Year-Old Girl's Skateboarding Posse

The Daily Word

It’s Wednesday November 26th and this rude ass storm is ruining Thanksgiving!

Meanwhile in Southern California, three six-year-old girls are cooler than we will ever be, and skateboard all the damn time.

In Pakistan, 20-year-old Aansoo Kohli teaches 150 children in a shed, isn’t paid for the job, and is finishing her Bachelors Degree,

And if you’re American and you're reading this from your tent outside Best Buy while you wait for a 99 cent TV, joke's on you! You’re doing it wrong!

A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?

And while the rest of us are consuming questionable amounts of alcohol this “holiday” season and arguing with our racist in-laws, these dogs are all that really matter this Thanksgiving.

Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!

Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.
