Best of Burque
Best of Burque Photo Deadline Extended to Noon on Monday March 24
You can email Best of Burque photos to email@example.com now.
I wanted to enter Gomez in Best of Burque, but when I tried to send his picture in (to me) there was some kind of … photorazzle.boogerbomb thing I had to register on … and then the phone rang, and I spilled my coffee, and Dr. Cyclops was on and I just never got back to it. Does everything have to be so complicated?

The Problem With Being Made in May
¡Viva la Science!
We’ve known for decades that babies conceived at certain times of the year tend, on average, to be healthier than babies conceived at other times. But what the hell, right? Why should that be? By looking at the birth records for over 1.4 million children born in the 1990s and 2000s, two economists may have figured out how it happens.

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Baby shower for a low-income family
Usually, the Found on Santa Fe Craigslist blog is reserved for tongue-in-cheek repostings of ridiculous Southwest furniture, unicorn mirrors, semi-used magical equipment and the like. But this one isn’t. I’d just like to share this woman’s request for help with diapers, a double stroller and a baby swing. Her husband’s work hours were cut, and they’re expecting a medically unforeseen visit from the stork. If you have a little to spare, two struggling parents in Santa Fe county could use it.

Where Babies Come From
Midwife-run nonprofit births alternative for expectant mothers
Dar a Luz Birth & Health Center sits on a lush plot of land in the North Valley, set back from the road and abutted by agricultural plots. The sprawling center seems about as un-hospital-like as Abigail Lanin Eaves could make it.

The state's only residential substance abuse treatment clinic for pregnant women, Casita de Milagros, will be closing on July 1.

My Farewell Column
It is time once again for me to bid you, my fair reader, adieu.
I am moving back to Oklahoma, a state apparently bent on my destruction. I had some great tornado jokes lined up for this column—real grade-A material.
Alas, I woke up the other morning and the damn things had laid waste to most of Alabama. Severe weather humor is horribly inappropriate at this particular juncture.
So we’ll skip the tornado jokes.
