  • ESSAY: After 9/11, searching for American optimism

    NEW YORK (AP) — Before the towers crumbled, before the doomed people jumped and the smoke billowed and the planes hit, the collective American memory summoned one fleeting fragment of beauty: a clear blue sky.

    So many of those who remember that day invoke that detail. Last week, New York magazine, which has been running a 9/11 "encyclopedia" ahead of the 10th anniversary, added an entry for "Blue: What everyone would remember first." It chronicled nearly a dozen of the ways that Americans recalling 9/11 anchor their looks back with a reminiscence of blue sky.

  • Census: NM ranks 5th in proportion of gay couples

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New census figures show that New Mexico has the fifth-highest proportion of same-sex couples in the nation.

    The recently released analysis of 2010 Census figures shows that nearly 10 out of every 1,000 New Mexico households are headed by same-sex couples. That's a 73 percent jump from 2010.

    The Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation Law, based at the University of California, Los Angeles, released the report..

    Gary Gates, one of the study's authors, said the jump is likely a result of increased migration to the state and because more couples are identifying as same-sex households.
