Carless in Albuquerque

J.A. Montalbano has been doing a delightful series this week in the Albuquerque Tribune on his adventures of going a week without driving his car. Today is telecommuting. My favorite bit of business was from day two at the bus stop:

I left the house at 11:25 a.m. and got to the Rapid Ride stop outside Presbyterian Hospital on Central two minutes later. The message board at the stop promised a bus in five minutes, and it was right on time.

That brief window, though, let me witness a transaction among three men involving some sort of tobacco product that, apparently, when used properly, made tiny cigarettes.
