"Warm Crap in a Bag"

Fritos and chile and pie, oh my!

Blue Corn If you’re a foodie, you probably already know that anyplace where you find a popular delicacy, you’ll also find conflict over its origin. Everybody wants a bite of success.

When Smartasses Write

Didn’t think it would last this long, did you?

Send in the Clowns

Don’t bother, they’re here…

Naked Chicks in Chairs

Artist’s home is for the birds…

Blue Corn Today, I’m going to tell you about a guy I consider something of a local treasure, the best-known Santa Fe character you’ve probably never heard of.

Dateline Havana

Easy Pickings

Hello, I’ll be your victim for this evening…

Blue Corn I’ve written several columns about the wacky crimes in Santa Fe, and I have pointed out that sometimes the victims themselves seem, let me put this delicately, about as smart as an adobe brick.

Come for the Hubcaps!

Six meals a day in Santa Fe?

Blue Corn There’s sort of a miniature local controversy going on lately, and as much as I usually enjoy shooting off my mouth and taking sides, I really don’t have much sympathy for any of the factions here.

Gimme Shelter!

Reigning cats and dogs?

Blue Corn I’m sorry, but my first column of 2015 won’t be quite as lighthearted as usual, although I do promise some pretty funny stuff near the end if you are patient.
