The Daily Word in APD, melanoma and kindness

The Daily Word

A USA Today article published yesterday quoted Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden recognizing "a systemic failure in ... ability to track employee misconduct." Eden went to say, "I believe there are people on the force who shouldn't be on the force.'' But Eden told USA Today that police union contracts make it difficult to enforce retroactive discipline within bounds of a union contract, stating "Yes, we may be stuck with them."

Today Albuquerque Police Officers Association President Stephanie Lopez told KOAT that she initially felt disappointed and angered that Eden would represent officers in this light. But Lopez and Eden have since talked and are now on the same page.

Outfitted in full gear, Albuquerque firefighters climbed stairs 110 stories today in honor of those lost in the 9/11 terror attacks.

It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of babies: God damn it, you've got to be kind."
