The Daily Word in fired cops, frivolous lawsuits and crimes against women, Asians and theater people

RIP Archie of Riverdale

Two former APD cops say they were fired for political reasons and not for kicking the shit out of a suspected car-thief.

It seems like a good idea, but you are not allowed to take items left in front of thrift stores.

The Q-Staff theatre company was victim to theft of props and musical instruments.

Betty or Veronica? You might have a chance now they've killed Archie!

Could be you only like people who are like you.

Meet me in Atlantic City, but not at a casino because they're closing down.

Behold the worst-written and most meandering peripheral tale to Orange is the New Black.

Here is a man that can live on bread alone.

"I was only sleeping...."

John&Yoko were right, this world hates women.

A short education on an extremely offensive and common slur.

Skynyrd kinda did it first, but what if record covers were missing the deceased members?

The Daily Word in fire, a haunted VHS and Redskin racism

Good morning, it's Wednesday, June 18,

and the Assayii Lake Fire is continuing to spread,

a memorial for Nancy Myers, a woman who was killed at a homeless encampment by a hit-and-run driver on June 9th, will be held this Friday at 6pm at the Albuquerque Rescue Mission courtyard (525 Second SW),

and one New Mexico gubernatorial campaign has been caught lying in emails, and the other apparently doesn't like "fat girls" in bikinis,

Meanwhile,

the US Patent Office has revoked the Redskins' trademarks because they are "disparaging to Native Americans,"

Youtube will soon begin blocking music videos from independent labels,

and a London bus stop is being haunted by a VHS copy of Hell Raiser.

Have a great day!

By Devin D. O’Leary
A mere two weeks after its debut, HBO’s ballsy, awkward and uncomfortably honest comedy “Girls” has become a surprising lightning rod for controversy. Depending upon which website you visit, the show is either a refreshingly feminist take on coming-of-age sitcoms or a distressingly antifeminist take on the same.
