Editor’s Note: National and local media have made much of the concluding season of Breaking Bad, which is filmed in Albuquerque, and includes well-known local sites and businesses in each episode. This letter from Jason M. Rael, the managing attorney for the Juvenile Division of the New Mexico Public Defender Department, was powerful enough that we wanted to publish it on page one. He asked that we mention that opinions expressed are his, and his alone.
As I came to work today, the news aired another Breaking Bad-related story. Apparently, one of the apartments used in the show is going to be going up for rent.
It seems Albuquerque is really going to miss her TV show. Every week we get some new Breaking Bad update – whether it be an appearance of one of the stars, the sale of the show’s paraphernalia, or an award won by the series.
