The Daily Word in 'stop-and-frisk,' DiMaggios' legacy and Gilligan's leadership

By Mark Lopez [ Mon Aug 12 2013 10:42 AM ]
The Daily Word

A U.S. district judge has ruled New York's “stop-and-frisk” procedures unconstitutional due to unfair racial profiling.

Some luxury resort condominiums collapsed in a massive sinkhole near Disney World. So far no injuries have been reported.

After James L. DiMaggio was shot dead over the weekend, resulting in Hannah Anderson being found safe in Idaho, authorities reveal that DiMaggio's father once held a teenager at gunpoint in the '80s.

After spending a year and a half in a coma, Dutch Prince Johan Friso died this morning.

Hey Mr. DJ, is this your equipment we found on Craigslist?

Let the record show that if you wave a stun gun at your son in the front yard, you're probably going to get probation.

The city introduced a plan to provide $2.4 million a year to rebuild APD. The bill will be brought to the public at the Aug. 19 City Council meeting.

Just a few leadership lessons from Vince Gilligan, creator of AMC's “Breaking Bad.”

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #263: Greg Kinnear recognizes me.

By Brutus De Cervantes [ Tue Aug 28 2012 2:36 PM ]

I am in a toy store. I purchase two carved, wooden balls from the long-haired cashier for $130. I have him hold them for me at the counter. I tell him I am considering a "shift in play paradigms," and that I would like to see the Batman action figures. He leads me to the video games where Greg Kinnear, wearing a cowboy hat, recognizes me and says hello.

The banks didn’t want you anyway

By Marisa Demarco [ Wed Aug 8 2012 2:10 PM ]

I ran across this Wall Street Journal article today, which says those great big financial institutions lots of folks ditched after Bank Transfer Day aren’t shedding any tears over the loss. Instead, the bigwig at Morgan Chase indicates that customers who don’t have $100,000 in assets don’t make the banks any cash anyway.

But the five biggest credit unions have seen a 45 percent increase in deposits.

In the Alibi’s news section last week, reporter Margaret Wright explores fallout from Bank Transfer Day locally. Scope her article Cash Out: Making sense of last year's run on the banks.

Crimes of the Anasazi: Getting busted in Downtown’s embattled high-rise

By Ty Bannerman [ Mon Jul 30 2012 4:52 PM ]

It wasn’t a good idea. We knew that at the time, but I guess we thought we would get away with it.

On March 23, 2011, Mike Smith and I took the bus down Central through Albuquerque’s neon-lit Downtown. We were headed toward the Anasazi building. At nine stories tall, it towered over other buildings on the block, and its pueblo-influenced, multitier design gave its dark, empty windows romantic intrigue. Could we get in? What was inside? What would it be like to be one of the few people who had looked out of those lofty windows?

Near the very top of its eastern face, there was a tantalizing sign that entry was possible: A graffiti rainbow coursed from the rooftop down the bare side. If that artist could get in, so could we. We didn’t think about what would happen if we got caught; we just wanted to see it from the inside.
