UNM students must wait years to get campus child care
By Simon McCormack
Monnica Garcia says she lucked out.
After she became pregnant, she hopped on the waiting list for UNM’s Children’s Campus for Early Care and Education while she was still in high school. A year and a half later, her son’s name was called. Garcia enrolled him at the daycare center just in time to start taking classes at UNM in 2002.

Media coverage of crime is always divisive. Reporters have to respect victims and their grieving families while writing for a public that thrives on grisly details.

You want to bring a gun in to a restaurant that sells alcohol? The Senate's OK with that. A bill sponsored by Democratic Sen. George Munoz and backed by the National Rifle Association was passed by the Senate and is on its way to the House. Opposing lawmakers balked at allowing patrons to carry concealed weapons into family restaurants where liquor is served.

Councilor Michael Cadigan called out Mayor Martin Chavez and his administration for not issuing a public statement about the 13 bodies excavated from the mesa. Councilor Ken Sanchez said he spoke to Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz about the situation, and the chief is willing to keep the Council updated. Councilor Trudy Jones gave a shout-out to Schultz, who was sitting in on the meeting, and requested an update right then and there. Chief Schultz declined, saying he would prefer to talk with the councilors about the case in a one-on-one setting out of public view.

Stimulate the Stimulus
By Jerry Ortiz y Pino
Remember last November, when it slowly began to dawn on us poor sap taxpayers that the hundreds of billions of dollars of public money the federal government had poured into the bailout of our failing multinational financial industry was going nowhere but into the bankers’ pockets and their corporate lockboxes?
Odds & Ends

Dateline: Australia—Police in Queensland were called out to a “mini-riot” after a man refused to take off his clothes at a notorious nudist colony’s sex party. Police were summoned amid threats of violence and ordered John Harrison of Brisbane and his wife to leave the “anything goes” orgy, reports the Courier-Mail. The incident happened at the White Cockatoo resort, near Port Douglas, which is promoting a month of “adults only” hedonism to boost sagging tourism figures. Owner Tony Fox said the row erupted when four naked female guests protested when confronted by the fully clothed man. “They felt uncomfortable with him eyeing them up, and I asked him to show some respect and take his clothes off,” said Fox. “He then threatened to bash me. There was some argy-bargy and I ordered him off the premises and police were called.”
The cover of this issue [March 5-11] was appalling! With domestic abuse in New Mexico at epidemic proportions and macho attitudes inflamed by a bad economy, it is too bad that the Alibi has to encourage this behavior with its cover artwork. You owe battered women and children of Albuquerque an apology.
