Sonoran Hot Dogs

From the azcentral.com article “Serving up a special treat: Sonoran hot dogs

For the uninitiated, Sonoran hot dogs are bacon-wrapped wieners piled high with beans, mayonnaise, cheese, onions, tomatoes — and for the more daring, mushrooms, guacamole, salsa and jalapeño peppers — all stuffed inside a fluffy white Mexican roll called a bolillo.

Bacon-wrapped hot dogs are a fast-food staple in Sonora, Arizona’s neighbor to the south. Known as “hot dogs estilo Sonora,” they are so popular, Sonorenses, as people from that state are called, eat them as often as Mexicans in other states eat tacos.

A true crossover hybrid of American and Mexican border culture, Sonoran hot dogs also have long been popular in Arizona communities closer to the border. In Tucson, scores of restaurants and street vendors sell Sonoran hot dogs. This past summer, a battle between rival vendors became so heated, the FBI got involved. In the end, one Sonoran hot-dog vendor was charged with trying to extort $600,000 from another.

Dumbshits Who Live In Rio Rancho, New Mexico

Every city has people who are not very intelligent. Rio Rancho, New Mexico has the appropriately named James Dickie.

Dickie allegedly burnt the dog, burnt his scrotum, burnt his testicles, in order to save himself the expense of possibly having the dog neutered by a licensed veterinarian,” said John Francis of the Rio Rancho police. Police said two days before the incident, Dickie was seen violently beating Charlie in the yard. According to the police report, Dickie drop-kicked his dog several times and threw the animal into a yucca plant.

Mr. Dick-ie was arrested and faces a 4th degree felony. The dog had $700 in hospital bills payed by a neighbor. A follow up indicates that Mr. Dick-ie has more dogs and the Rio Rancho Police can’t do anything about it. He will probably have them taken away when he is hopefully sentenced.

At least one neighbor is clueless.

One neighbor told Action 7 News that the accusations against Dickie do not paint a fair picture of him, and that he takes good care of his animals.

Electromagnetic Sensitivity In Santa Fe, New Mexico

Santa Fe is the capital city of New Mexico but it’s not nearly as populated as Albuquerque and is known for being artsy and for electromagentic sensitive people.

A Santa Fe man who says he suffers from electromagnetic sensitivity is suing his next-door neighbor for refusing to turn off her cell phone and other electronic devices.

Arthur Firstenberg, who has actively opposed the proliferation of wireless systems in public buildings, claims he has been made homeless by Raphaela Monribot’s rejection of his requests.

New Mexico is the right place to live to get away from all electromagntic signals. The Very Large Array in Socorro, New Mexico is in a signal free zone. One does not have to go far into the desert to get away signals but living anywhere near or in a city is a bad idea.

There Are Things We Just Cannot Explain

Ex-wife I understand, but that he has a girlfriend now. Some people just go too far sometimes and I think this is one of those times.

Willie Windsor, 54, of Phoenix has for several years lived as a full-time baby, wearing frilly dresses, diapers and bonnets, sucking on a pacifier, eating Gerber cuisine, and habitually clutching a rag doll, in a home filled with oversized baby furniture. According to a long Phoenix New Times profile in June, the diaper is not just a prop. Windsor said he worked hard to become incontinent, even chaining the commode shut to avoid temptation, and the reporter admitted feeling “disconcert(ed)” that Windsor might be relieving himself at the very moment he was describing his un-toilet training. Apparently, Windsor’s brother, ex-wife, girlfriend and a neighbor tolerate his lifestyle (though no girlfriend has yet been willing to change his diapers). Windsor is a semi-retired singer-actor and said he’s been celibate for nine years. [Phoenix New Times, 6-9-05]
