Local Color XX++

Long time, sorry, I've been uninspired by life the universe and everything...


Two back-to-back only-in-NM news items have forced me out of forced retirement:
Man Beats “Zombie” Roommate To Death After Watching The Walking Dead
A New Mexico man who had been watching TV’s “The Walking Dead” says he fatally beat his friend before he could become a zombie. Grants police spokesman Moses Marquez said Sunday that 23-year-old Christopher Paquin was beaten and that 23-year-old Damon Perry is being held on a murder charge.

Sadly it appears that the above was only alcohol related rather than crank driven.

However this one is definitely ETOH^2:
Mother and daughter struck and killed [while fighting about excess drinking] on N.M. 599
 Lt. Andrea Dobyns of the Santa Fe Police Department said the two women were traveling with a female friend when they stopped their vehicle and got into an altercation that escalated to violence.

Maybe this will put me over the edge...
