The Daily Word in jet fuel, horse meat and performance art

The Daily Word

The New Mexico Public Education Department is grabbing the financial reins for a group of troubled Albuquerque charter schools.

It may rain this week. *fingers crossed*

The New Mexico State Fair is less than a week away. Eat something fried for me.

Azul Burrito Co., we barely knew ye.

UNM is "not substantially compliant" with the Clery Act, which requires schools to properly communicate and monitor campus safety issues.

"Breaking Bad" is the gift that keeps on giving.

Colonel Tom Miller asks for a take-back on previously submitted KAFB jet fuel spill data.

Today in cultural relativity, zoo animals in Albuquerque will probably get to eat horse meat. And that's not unusual.

Performance art ain't dead yet, and thank goodness (and folks like Emma Sulkowicz) for that.

Culture Shock

If George Bush Sr. Hated It, It Has to Be Good

Tim Miller. This guy got his National Endowment for the Arts grant taken away under pressure from the first Bush Administration for the subject matter of his work being ... wait for it ... gay. And he wasn’t alone. There were three other performance artists in the same boat—a lady who talked about sex, a lady who talked about being a lesbian, and an actor who was in the ZZ Top video for “Legs” and a several shows in the “Star Trek” series—I’m not sure what he talked about, but someone didn’t like it. They later got it back after suing the federal government for violating their First Amendment rights (God, I love that amendment).
