Local Albuquerque news station KRQE reports that two off duty female APD officers pulled over a man in bikini tops.
“(They wore) very superficial clothes,” Spilca said. “Like a shirt unbuttoned to here and very short pants.”
In addition to the bikini tops, which were visible underneath the two officers’ unbuttoned shirts, Jara and Kelly had pistols tucked into their short shorts, he said. Besides the guns, the only other thing that identified them as police officers were badges pinned to their shorts, Spilca said, adding that it wasn’t obvious that the women were cops.
The man who was pulled over, Ilie Spilca, has apparently filed a citizen complaint with the APD. I just don’t understand why. When I’m pulled over by female APD officers I would much rather they be in Bikini’s. Or be wearing those tear off uniforms, take out a boom box and start dancing.
Sadly the included TV news report does not include photos of the officers in bikinis.
Charles Platt has had a number of posts on Boing Boing about Arizona (Unfortunately there’s no way for me to link to just his posts on Arizona or just his posts on Boing Boing). Since I am from Arizona, I have particularly enjoyed these posts. Arizona is so much more than the heavily populated and oppressively hot Phoenix Metro area.
His latest is about the Titan Missile Museum in Sahuarita, Arizona. I have never heard of either. Sahuarita, Arizona is located south of Tucson near Green Valley. There are about 1000 pictures related to the museum on Flickr.
I also liked his post with a view from a “former mining town” somewhere in Arizona. It could from a number of places. He doesn’t mention where exactly (probably Jerome).
I also have a number of photos on Flickr about Arizona and posts here on this blog you can check out.

I took a early morning trip to the Balloon Fiasco as we often call it. I would have probably had four times as photos if I didn’t run out of battery power. You can view the flickr set or watch the slide show below.
I attempted to take some photos of the fireworks on Monday. The results were so-so. Although I tried to follow the recommendations I came up short in several areas.
I had a good camera and a tripod. But I was missing the ability to remotely control the camera. Thus camera shake was a issue. I think my exposure and other camera settings were good, but we were far from the action. A zoom lens would have helped a lot. Even then I think I could have got better shots closer to the firing location.
I ended up with about 360 pictures of which there’s maybe 10 good ones. Even those were too small. It was a good learning experience though!
NewMexiken made a post about the founding of the Muir Woods National Monument which inspired me to post these photos. They were taken in 2001 when I was there on a work related assignment. It’s an incredible place, I can only imagine what all of Northern California looked like before us human scum cut it all down.
