A local “cafeteria angel” is paying off student lunch debts at elementary schools anonymously and depositing money into needy families' bank accounts, because apparently some people care about other people?

Americans can't do anything right. We can’t even dress ourselves! Which really pisses Kate Midleton off. C'mon, you guys! Get it together!
Merry happy Thanksgiving, or whatever. Don’t drink and drive.

Eeeee! Who you callin’ turkey, chicharrón?
This week in Food, Ari LeVaux visits decades-old Chicharroneria Orozco’s new digs on Bridge and samples a golden-fried plate of turkey tails (aka colitas de pavo), one of the few non-pork meats in the place.
In other chicharrón news, that’s the name of the porcine sidekick carried around by Lynette ("Shit Burqueños Say") in a new series of New Mexico State Fair commercials. Felicidades to Blackout Theatre and Expo New Mexico for a local marketing campaign that’s actually, and awesomely, local.

(gChile x trky + chz)bread2 = ABQTurkey
Green chile. Turkey. Cheese. Bread. That’s it. The classic “Albuquerque turkey” sandwich is about as simple as it gets, which means the quality of the ingredients that go into it—and the perhaps atmosphere around it—are paramount. In this week’s food section, professional gobbler Ari LeVaux makes a case that JohnDhi’s nails both ends of the ABQT equation.

Stalking the Albuquerque Turkey
The “Albuquerque turkey” sandwich is the lesser-celebrated cousin of the green chile cheeseburger. This simple combination of flavors is found in most any Burque sandwich shop—including Subway franchises—and even in pie-form at some pizzerias. As with the green chile cheeseburger, it’s possible to try too hard. But all that really matters are the bare essentials: green chile, turkey, cheese and bread, in roughly that order. JohnDhi’s BBQ, on Rio Grande and Griegos, makes one of the tastiest versions in town.

Five Star Burgers
Meat that’s bloody well done
Last week I explained the new direction this review column is taking, including the fact that I’ll no longer be eating or writing about mystery meat. There are many shades of mystery, and this simple-sounding mandate was tested numerous times during my first attempt to follow it at Five Star Burgers—with tasty results.
