In his column, "Pit bulls: Own them at your own risk," Dan Rodricks quotes a recent Maryland Court of Appeals decision that says the Albuquerque Humane Society has stopped accepting and adopting out pit bulls "because of their potential for attacks on other animals and people. " That is doubly incorrect. First, the "Albuquerque Humane Society" does not exist. Second, Animal Humane - New Mexico, a 47-year old private animal shelter based in Albuquerque, N.M. (often mistkenly called the Albuquerque Humane Society)

ALBUQUERQUE / / At the American International Rattlesnake Museum in Old Town Albuquerque, I spotted a sign on the door. "We love tourists," it said. "They taste just like chicken." In the past, this city was about as welcoming as that sign. Shops in Old Town had to be persuaded to stay open evenings, and until recently, zoning laws prohibited Old Town visitors from sitting on a restaurant patio and enjoying a glass of wine or a margarita. So tourists would fly into Sunport, Albuquerque's airport, and slither their way up Interstate 25 to Santa Fe, its sexier, better-dressed sister city.

This October, Albuquerque, N.M., will host the largest outdoor birthday party in the world, with a guest list numbering more than a million people. Held under the Duke City's cloudless cobalt skies, the event will commemorate the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta's 20th anniversary.You might have flown in hot-air balloons before and experienced a graceful ascent, lovely vistas that stretch forever and the euphoric sensation that overwhelmes you as you float above the treetops. But nothing can compare to flying amid hundreds of airborne pastel bubbles in a mass ascension.

Remnants of Route 66 mark the West like Burma Shave road signs. Singly, they seem out of context, but collectively they tell a tale. There's everything from the famous Richardson Trading Post in downtown Gallup, N.M., to an abandoned gas station piled with tumbleweeds near remote Peach Springs, Ariz. But nowhere is the architecture and history more collected and well preserved than in Albuquerque, N.M. "If you're only going to see one part of old Route 66, you should see it in Albuquerque," says Quinta Scott, photographer and author of Along Route 66, (University of Oklahoma Press, $34.95)

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The Utah women's basketball team nearly crashed Maryland's party at the NCAA tournament. The Terps withstood a gritty effort from the Utes, a stomach virus that affected several players and lackluster performances from a few to outlast Utah, 75-65, in overtime before a pro-Utes crowd of 6,823 in the Albuquerque Regional final at "The Pit" at the University of New Mexico.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- As excited as she was to see the firepower the Maryland women's basketball team exhibited in an Albuquerque Regional semifinal win against defending national champion Baylor, coach Brenda Frese was even more pleased by the defense Saturday night. "Absolutely," Frese said yesterday when asked if she drew greater satisfaction from the defensive effort the Terps used to bounce the Lady Bears from the NCAA tournament. "We've known all season long what kind of offensive team we are, but to put a complete 40-minute game that included our defense and our rebounding and then you cap it off with the defending national champions, it really was just a tremendous game."

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - In retrospect, he might have done things differently. If Taquan Dean had passed the ball rather than pulled up for the 12-foot jumper that fell just short, Louisville might have won the game in regulation. But that was just a minor miscue in what turned out to be a masterful comeback by the Cardinals yesterday. On a day when No. 7 seed West Virginia played an almost perfect game, fourth-seeded Louisville was a touch better, surviving superb Mountaineers' shooting and a confounding 1-3-1 zone defense to win the NCAA tournament's Albuquerque Regional, 93-85, in overtime.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Washington guard Nate Robinson stood by his coach, bent over at the waist, trying to stretch out his cramping ankles but unable to make the pain in his heart go away. Louisville, champion of Conference USA, both regular season and tournament, owner of a 32-4 record and a curiously low fourth seed in the NCAA Albuquerque Regional, ran circles around Robinson's top-seeded Huskies last night in the Sweet 16. The Cardinals built a 12-point halftime lead and just kept going, eliminating Washington, 93-79.
