Congressman Raul Grijalva had a great visit to the Colbert Nation last night.
Loved Colbert's description of Congressional District 7 as "hotter than the devil's balls."
From a press release that came in too late for this week's issue:
Where were you in 1967? Let's see, the population in Tucson was 150,000, a first class stamp was only a nickel, Rolling Stone magazine made its debut and Pizza Hut opened its first location in Tucson.
Officially, Pizza Hut in Tucson will be launching this celebration at the first restaurant built located at Speedway and Swan. To celebrate, all participating Tucson Pizza Hut restaurants will offer dine-in sodas for the 1967 price of 20¢ on Tuesday, May 29 only.
Continuing the celebration, Pizza Hut is kicking off a June fundraiser for Save Our Sabino, where Pizza Hut has initiated a matching fund, pledging $40,000 to Save our Sabino in honor of its 40th anniversary!
"Pizza Hut has been honored to be part of the Tucson community for 40 years and we are so excited to celebrate our birthday by giving back and helping to protect and enhance the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area," said Brent Kyte, franchise owner of Pizza Hut of Arizona.
During the month of June, Pizza Hut has committed to match all donations up to $40,000 to Save Our Sabino. There are three ways you can donate to the cause:
1) Stop by any Pizza Hut location and donate
2) Go to the "Friends of Sabino" website and click on the link to donate-but make sure you specify the "Pizza Hut challenge"
3) Mail a check payable to Save our Sabino c/o Pizza Hut of Arizona, 5902 E. Pima St., Tucson, AZ 85712. Donate as much as you can through June, because now your dollar is worth much more with help from Pizza Hut to save a local favorite landmark.
A University of Arizona Police Department report alleges that an FBI agent was caught masturbating in a women's restroom stall at the UA student union on Thursday, May 3.
UAPD Sgt. Eugene Mejia confirmed that Ryan James Seese is an FBI agent, who, according to the report, appears to be based in Phoenix. Mejia said Seese was cited and released to his supervisor, after the supervisor gave police permission to search the agent's government-issued vehicle, which was parked in a garage near the student union.
Deborah McCarly, a spokeswoman with the FBI's Phoenix division, said only that "an employee" has been accused of wrongdoing, citing confidentiality rules that prevented her from identifying the person or his or her position. She referred all questions back to UAPD.
"As it is their investigation, it is their matter, and obviously we're not going to comment on their investigation," McCarly said.
According to Mejia, Seese was to be arraigned earlier this morning on charges of public sexual indecency, public indecency and trespassing.
