The Daily Word in Syrian interventions, Albuquerque abortion bans, and OMG Miley Cyrus

The Daily Word

The Fort Hood gunman had an opportunity to make a final statement before sentencing. Here is a (paraphrased) transcript, "Defendant shrugged shoulders and mumbled 'Whatever man.'"

Santa Fe mulls over the eternal question of paper or plastic. Decides on paper. For everyone.

Yes, art can be a crime. In Russia. When it's a painting of Putin and Medvedev in women's underwear.

Looks like the abortion question will be on a Bernalillo County ballot sometime soon. Probably in a special election. Which will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. To decide on a ban that is already unconstitutional and will no doubt be overturned.

50 years after Martin Luther King, Jr. and the fight goes on.

Albuquerque is a top 20 city for early 20-somethings! Mainly because it's cheap to live here.

Looks like some kind of military intervention in Syria is inevitable.

But don't think about that. Miley Cyrus did a thing!
