How overcrowded is the city's jail? Who would win in a fight: Denish or Chavez? Who's in charge of the city's animal shelters? Is that coal plant thing happening?
1) The Metropolitan Detention Center is bracing for the influx of drunks and fighters that are arrested during the State Fair. Even before the extras start flooding in, the jail is already over capacity by:

3) Last week, “Answer Me This” reported that Denise Wilcox, director of Albuquerque's animal shelters, would be replaced by veterinarian John Romero. That's true.
