The Daily Word in radioactive cat litter and fracking New Mexico
By Ty Bannerman [ Wed May 14 2014 9:57 AM ]
It's Wednesday, May 14th,
and experts suggest that the WIPP radiation leak may be due to kitty litter. "Just regular cat litter," said Dr. Jim Concha;
New Mexico's own Mora County is getting ready to battle fracking companies in a case with national implications,
and a beautiful spring is giving way to New Mexico's fifth, and least popular, season: Fire Season.
Justin Beiber has been accused of stealing a cell phone at a Los Angeles batting cage,
scientists have found the oldest sperm on record, but aren't sure why it's so big,
global warming will continue to make my margaritas more expensive,
and a man installing a No Parking sign received a parking ticket. "But I'm putting these signs up," the man said "Then you should know you can't park here," the officer responded.
Have a great day!

Is “Megadrought” the new normal?
By Ari LeVaux [ Tue Jul 24 2012 4:13 PM ]
We've all heard the gloomy scenarios of global warming: extreme weather, drought, famine, breakdown of society, destruction of civilization. Here in New Mexico it feels like we’ve made the switch from esoteric to actual, from computer model to daily life. My perch in Placitas feels like a front-row seat to the apocalypse. Smoke is in the air. Neighbors are fighting over water. Some of my outdoor flower pots have melted in the heat. Wild animals are getting thirsty, hungry and bold. It turns out, this might just be the new normal for the American Southwest.
