The Daily Word in Flashdancing, pure evil and also a goat
Good morning, it's Wednesday, June 11,
and let's take a moment to remember the famous "Flashdancer of Albuquerque Academy,"
before we settle into the grim business of keeping our eyes peeled for a black or green small pickup truck with front end damage
that was probably involved in the deadly "hit-and-run" that killed one pedestrian and injured three others on Monday morning at an encampment of homeless people on Iron and 1st,
