A Case of the Humps

Speed humps in Four Hills Village impact District 9 Council race

By

Sometimes everything comes down to a good, old-fashioned hump. Er, speed hump, that is. At least, that may be the case in Four Hills Village in District 9, where residents are getting all riled up over a familiar issue just in time for the Oct. 4 city election.

The Real Side

Bin Laden's Anniversary Party

Toasting Bush's Incompetence

By

Osama Bin Laden just celebrated his fourth anniversary as the motivator of 19 men who murdered 3,000 Americans. Somewhere in the mountains of Central Asia, he and Dr. Zawahiri, his chief strategist, might have observed Sept. 11 with tea and sweets. Perhaps they received a congratulatory note from Mullah Omar, the one-eyed Taliban leader who sheltered Al Qaeda while it plotted attacks on Manhattan and Washington, and who also continues to enjoy his freedom. He even has a spokesperson operating openly in Pakistan.

Odds & Ends

By

Dateline: Holland—A 31-year-old dutchman returned home from work to find a strange car parked in the driveway of his home in Pieterburen. Two children were sitting in the backseat, so the man asked them where their father was. According to Nu.nl, a local newspaper, the children said their father was “robbing” the man's house. The homeowner rushed inside to find a man and a woman who immediately ran out and drove off with the children. The homeowner could not catch the burglars, who did not have time to steal anything, but he was able to describe the entire family to police.

Edible Herbs in the Concrete Jungle

Urban Foraging Walk

By Mayo Lua de Frenchie
The preconception of the desert is perceived as brown, spiky, hot and just generally kind of unwelcoming. We don't think about being able to forage for food and survive on this vegetation, especially in the urban desert of Albuquerque. Welp, Spur Line Supply Co. is about to change that notion. Join other curious omnivores and fans of the holistic on Sunday, March 31 from 12:30 to 1:15pm on an Urban Foraging Walk. Learn to identify and harvest tasty and practical foliage with a focus on invasive and humdrum plants we walk by every day that can be used for things like food, tea and skin care. This walk is free and suitable for all ages and abilities.
