Fiona Apple cancels tour to take care of dying dog
Fiona Apple isn’t exactly known for her most well-grounded moments. You can look at her meltdown at Roseland Ballroom in 2000, or her ever-famous speech at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards where she stated, “This world is bullshit,” or most recently, her marijuana bust that landed her in jail in West Texas during her most recent tour.

Trap Neuter Return spurs debate
Every month, a volunteer force traps feral felines, fixes them and then puts them back where they came from. This method is practiced nationwide and is meant to replace the standard municipal strategy: trap and kill.
TNR proponents I spoke with for my news article “Claws Out” argue that returning fixed cats to their colonies decreases feral populations. The feline resumes its position in the neighborhood without birthing more kittens. If it were simply killed, another unfixed cat would take its place.
Program for street cats stirs controversy
The city’s facing a problem: What to do with an immeasurable number of feral felines? Trap, neuter and return (TNR) efforts are the latest answer, but a veterinarian is calling the process unethical and inhumane.

Las Conchas fire update: Cochiti evacuation, boycott fireworks, pet haven
Cochiti is prepping for a mandatory evacuation. Los Alamos was evacuated this afternoon.
A Facebook event is circulating that invites people to “boycott fireworks of any kind this year in New Mexico!” The guest list has grown exponentially throughout the day. As of right now, almost 6,000 people are attending and about 400 are not.
Red Dragon Invades Downtown
Monster possibly about to make a trip to Knockouts
I love this weird city. A crowd of shrieking and pointing passersby attracted me to the front entrance of Knockouts on my way back from lunch this afternoon. It was not a dancer doing something outrageous. It was the biggest four-legged reptile I’ve ever encountered outside of a zoo. It was rough and reddish, with a long white band on its tail and enormous jowls. Unlike the speedy Godzilla, or a Komodo dragon, it was crawling along like cold honey. And it was moving steadily towards the Knockouts door. His owner stood calmly minding him, answering questions from rubberneckers like me.
