Thin Line

Self-Scrutiny—All right fellow media critics, we’re about to make “Thin Line” history. As best I can tell, this is the first time the Telescope of Righteous Indignation has been flipped over, leaving the Alibi squirming at the wrong end.

One woman's story illustrates that New Mexico’s Child Enforcement Division is deadbeat for single parents seeking aid

When Jessica Sanchez was a child, she strategically planned visits to friends’ homes at the dinner hour. “I would pretend I was going over there to play, but, really, it was just in time for dinner,” she says. Food and money were scarce during Sanchez’ childhood, as her single mother struggled to collect child support for Sanchez and her sister. Now 28, Sanchez has yet to see a cent of child support, for either herself or her two young sons.

Adrift in a Sea of Life Preservers

What will it take to save APS?

Ideas for how to save the Albuquerque Public School system are flying around the Legislature like aspen leaves on a blustery October afternoon. Every lawmaker seems to have a pet scheme for rescuing our ponderous district from itself--to no effect.

Odds & Ends

Dateline: Croatia--An angry husband who threw old clothes into his garden and set fire to them because he couldn’t find any clean underwear accidentally burned down his own home. Ivo Jerbic, 55, from Prikraj, near the capital city of Zagreb, told police he had lost his temper after failing to find any clean underpants in a closet full of old clothes. “My wife never throws anything out, I just lost my temper,” he admitted to officers. Jerbic dumped all the clothes in his yard and lit them on fire. Unfortunately, the fire spread to the house, which burned to the ground. Local news agency Hina reported Jerbic could face up to eight years in jail for putting other family members in danger, even though no one was injured.

Letters

I would like to commend Jim Scarantino for his excellent article “Land of Impeachment” [The Real Side, Feb. 1-7] and respond with some very important information concerning the impeachment resolution, SJR5. This Friday, Feb. 9, this resolution will be voted on in the Senate Rules Committee. The Republicans can be expected to all vote no, since they are basically ignorant tools of empire (i.e. ignorant of the fact that the 9/11 attacks, which they use to justify most of their backward and harmful policy, was an inside job, as proven by the work of David Ray Griffin and others), and the Democrats are all expected to vote yes, except one, Ben D. Altamirano, who has repeatedly shown himself to be a closet Republican, like House Speaker Ben Lujan (I’ll explain shortly). He has voiced opposition to the resolution stating that he doesn’t think that states have a right to begin impeachment proceedings. This is completely false of course, as pointed out in Mr. Scarantino’s article; section 603 of Jefferson’s Manual does give states this right very clearly.
