Sexual Assault in Albuquerque

Reports are on the rise but resources are spread thin

This is the first article in a series

You probably know someone who’s been raped. In fact, you probably know several people who’ve been sexually assaulted at some point in their lives; and if you’re a woman, there’s a one in four chance one of those people is you.

Equine therapy for veterans

I meet Gus and his two horses at an empty dirt arena in Santa Fe. It’s a cold morning but the sun is bright. The nearby mountains are capped with snow. There are rows of vacant stables alongside the arena. I move slowly, wrapped in a cloudy haze from lack of sleep. The horses look sleepy as well, tethered to their trailer nodding off. When they yawn, they seem on the verge of speaking. “Get away from me,” I imagine them saying. “What's that, an apple? Give it here.” Such teeth. Such manners.

Odds and Ends

Odds & Ends

Dateline: England—A British man has been arrested for drunk driving after being caught in the driver’s seat of a small, battery-powered Barbie car. Paul Hutton, 40, was spotted—hands on the wheel, knees tucked up under his chin—by a police patrol car in Essex, in the southeastern part of the country. According to The Sun, Hutton admitted in Colchester Magistrates’ Court to being a “complete twit.” Hutton, who was found to be over the legal limit, was banned from driving for three years as a result of the incident. “I was very surprised to get done for drink-driving, but I was a twit to say the least.” The former Royal Air Force aeronautical engineer had modified the 2-foot-high, pink plastic Jeep with his son as part of a college project. It has a top speed of 6 kilometers per hour. Speaking after the hearing, Hutton said, “You have to be a contortionist to get in, and then you can’t get out.” Hutton was allegedly driving the kiddie car to a friend’s house to show off his work when he was pulled over.

Letters

[Re: Feature, “Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Liberal,” April 22-28] As a lifelong liberal Democrat, I do not understand why Maren Tarro attended a "tea party" rally, even to be with her father. My politics are a serious matter to me, as they apparently are to Ms. Tarro, so I would not participate in an activity that pokes scorn at my convictions. I am 94 and grew up during the Great Depression and World War II (in which I served). The Democratic Party, led by FDR, saved the civilized world in my mind. Attending a rally of anti-FDR zealots was therefore unthinkable, even though a genial uncle would have been glad to take me. (My parents shared my views.) While I take my politics seriously, I try to be civil to citizens of opposing views. But I shun uncivil behavior. Incidentally, most of the Founding Fathers, including George Washington, deplored the vandalism of the original Boston Tea Party.
