While Mount St. Helens threatened fireworks, the Oct. 4 Council meeting considered Albuquerque's own volcanoes, went sub-ballistic regarding a missile, and saw two of the city's most level-headed officials vent giant steam clouds at each other.
More peaceably, Councilor Martin Heinrich commended PNM on the first anniversary of their Sky Blue wind-generated electricity program. Councilor Eric Griego named the flag of the former Republic of Vietnam as the official flag of the Albuquerque Vietnamese-American community. And Councilor Sally Mayer kissed it up with a terrific puppy named Petri who's available for adoption from the Westside animal shelter.
