The Daily Word in Maya Angelou, Mr. G. the goat and why you're probably going to get dementia

The Daily Word

Good afternoon, it's Wednesday, May 28

and Western Albuquerque Land Holdings have proposed a 13,700 acre development on ABQ's Westside,

Santa Fe police would like to talk to a man who broke into a home and watched two women having sex before the women noticed and pushed him out the door,

and Bernalillo County residents are facing long 911 response times while dispatchers try to figure out whether the caller is in State, County or City territory.

Meanwhile,

everyone's favorite poet Maya Angelou died,

a goat named Mr. G. became best friends with a burro named Jellybean,

and a new study suggests that being cynical can make you more susceptible to dementia.
