Top Five Reasons to Get a Flu Shot
We’re about mid-way through flu season here in New Mexico, so it’s not too late to get this year’s vaccination, thereby vastly reducing your chances of “catching a bug” that could, at the very least, set you stumbling back and forth on the trail of tears between your bedroom and bathroom for several days while your significant other spends their free time changing sheets, scrubbing the toilet bowl, and trying to figure out which carpet cleaner is most likely to get the vomit stains out of the rug. At worst, a bad case of the flu could see your loved ones spending their free time making funeral arrangements and fighting over who gets your vinyl records. So why take the risk?

BLM Black History March
On that arc of the moral universe that we sure hope bends toward justice, it’s important that we celebrate and lift up our communities. That’s why the Black Lives Matter “Our Black History” march this weekend is all about community. Gather at the University Arena (otherwise known as “The Pit”) at noon on Saturday, Feb. 24, when organizers lead marchers through our neighborhoods to Dennis Chavez Community Center. Expect barbecue, vendors, performers, speakers and activities at the community center throughout the afternoon. All who support Black Lives Matter are welcome to this free event.
