We find lots of interesting things in our mailbox. Sadly it's not like Christmas, but more like Halloween with tricks or treats. A faithful reader sent us the following little treat this weekend. You see, it seems that no matter how the braintrust on the 11th Floor of City Hall tries to play games, the citizens of Albuquerque are wise to their little tricks.
I am a tax paying citizen of the Barelas community. I want to know why
AFD is using a pumper truck in place of a ladder truck to serve our part
of town. The last time I checked, the tall buildings are downtown. What
the hell is going on with this city? A few weeks ago I saw we don't
have enough firemen on our trucks and now we don't even have trucks! How
the hell is the truck in this picture going to save anyone in a
building downtown? APD is a disgrace, AFD is short staffed and doesn't
have trucks, Albuquerque is dead last in the entire county in job growth
and New Mexico is now number one in child poverty. WTF is going on!
