There are thousands of cats in the Santa Fe area that are homeless – that is, they don’t live as domesticated animals, but in the wild.  Several years ago, though, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter launched the “Gatos de Santa Fe program,” and since then the shelter has spayed and neutered some of those feral cats, preventing disease and controlling the population.  KSFR’s Deborah Martinez has more on the story in part two of her series on feral cats.

Sometimes the ability of journalists to report a story tells a lot about the story.  Take, for example, the story of what's happening these days in Iraq, where Iranian-influence Shi'ite militiamen have been ethnically cleansing Sunni civilians for areas where they have lived for generations.  Albuquerque photo-journalist Jim Spiri told Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE this is not a story the US government and the US military want to be presented to Americans.  Some evidence that backs up this judgment comes from Spiri's experiences as a photo-journalist covering American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
