We gave you a tiny word count, and you gave us more than 119 mini-stories. The Alibi sorted through the entries until we strained out this year's winners of the Ridiculously Short Fiction Contest. Feel the literary might inside!

NEWS/OPINION
Those who care for the homeless in Albuquerque are feeling the crunch of the slumping economy. Environmentally friendly coffins, and the Albuquerque Journal doesn't pay much mind to the Albuquerque Pride Parade.
MUSIC
Santa Fe's first-rate all-ages venue, Warehouse 21, is back in business. And Wolf Parade's new album grows on you like an implausible freaking beanstalk.
FOOD
The bar steals the show at Nob Hill Bar and Grill. Plus, Downtown Gourmet is forced to say farewell.
FILM & TV
Graphic novel-inspired Wanted is likely to find a solid foothold among average, non-inkstained viewers eager to get blissed-out on pure summertime action. And the beautiful-yet-visceral Kazakhstani film Mongol is fighting for independent cinema.
ARTS/LIT
Santa Fe Opera General Director Richard Gaddes speaks on introducing ordinary New Mexicans into the odd, but oddly satisfying, high-strata subculture of opera. We speak with the man who helped blow the lid off of Blackwater. And gossip-queen Chelsea Handler talks dirty.

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