Weekly Alibi Editor Laura Marrich Departs

Laura Marrich has penned her final column as editor-in-chief/food editor of Albuquerque’s Weekly Alibi:

The long and short of it is, this issue is my last. It’s just time for me to go. Astrologically speaking, I’m cresting a magnificent Saturn Return, answering the call of a wonderfully rude psychic awakening that’s jolting me out of my comfort zone. (Channeling a little Free Will Astrology is also in order, apparently.)

I love the Alibi more than language can communicate. And because I love this paper so dearly, it’s time I paid my debt and made room for the next generation.

Marrich started as an intern at the Alibi in 2003, was named managing editor in 2007, and finally took over as editor in 2009.

“I’m headed back to school, trying on some other projects,” she said in an email. “It’s a
totally amicable parting, and it kind of breaks my heart to go, but it’s just time.”
