"Tom reflects on the government shutdown. Spoiler: He's not a Ted Cruz fan"
Who in their right mind would be a Ted Cruz fan?
Everybody needs to give us bicycle riders a little extra thought every single day of the year.
Not sure I see the hubbub here. Who really cares what a private school in Tucson does with their football booster club? Especially when it is small potatoes compared to what similar booster clubs do in Texas, Florida, Ohio and elsewhere. Nice potshot at your ex-wife though ...
It's not appropriate to repeatedly 'like' your own un-insightful comment.
I hope that all who read the tripe you have written realize that you speak only for yourself and that you do not represent the Mexican American community. Many, if not most of us, who have roots in Mexico still hold the Church in high regard, while condemning the vile acts of the few.
Don't understand the above comment's logic, much less the bad grammar. I'm not understanding why a relative by marriage's record has anything to do with someone's job. Is the brother-in-law working at a school there?
Like the column, though. Seems to be a clear-headed look at what's become a local soap opera.
Sounds like Brian might be kind of jealous of those Salpointe parents and the community. Oh, and remember that girl he divorced that went to St. Mary's? Don't worry about her. I went on to happily marry a Salpointe graduate. Heck, if we wanted to we too could donate money and stand on the field. Sounds like I got the better end of that deal!
Take a look at the City Manager's budget presentation to the Mayor and Council from April of this year. Hint it's a PowerPoint you can find on this web page: http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/budget and click on the April 14th PowerPoint link, which is actually a pdf file. Then read it or just cut to the chase and look at slides 47 to 53. These slides show that the city had $2.3 million surplus in unallocated funds at that time. The slides also show options to use that money and the city's bottom line. What the elected officials did as a) use the $2.3 million they had and about $9 million the city doesn't have to give employees a raise, b) cut pension contributions from 14% to 6.5% and c) made the numbers on slide 53 that show a $250 million cumulative operating fund deficit over the next 5 fiscal years even worse. In short the Mayor and Council came up to Tucson's Fiscal Cliff, looked over the edge and gleefully jumped. No wonder you can't endorse this cycle. It would be a sin to endorse a Republican but the incumbents are too incompetent and irresponsible for words. And there you have it. Don't believe this set of facts, check it out yourselves.
You mean you are not going to endorse the Progressive Liberal Road to failure candidates this time?
Cortez conquered the Aztec empire with about a thousand Spanish soldiers, some of whom he had to fight and subdue before using them because they had been sent by the Govenor of Cuba to Mexico to arrest him. Pizarro conquered the Inca empire with about 50 soldiers. The weakness of these native American empires was their belief in the absolute power of their rulers.
Heaven forbid that adults be able to alter their consciousness or enjoy their physical beings in a safe, responsible fashion! Who cares if they want to get high, cempiremtn? As long as they're doing it on their time, using their $ to buy it and staying off the roads, what business is it of yours? Or anybody else's, for that matter?
Aw, c'mon. Don't "rain" on Dan's charade.
I wonder if Lute is proud of his daughter's cave-in.

Check it out: "reign" vs "rein".
"a wake-and-bake-supply trip "
This shows that the the "Medical Pot" sham really is "mostly" that, a SHAM. All it is about is getting weed to get high.
"Can't we all just get along....:Sorry Tom. When SUSD hires and keeps a district head who is a train wreck what do you expect. Guess you wrote this before the world found out his brother in law who is a felon. Guess its OK to sell dope and then work with kids. Would SUSD hire a teacher with a record like that? I doubt it.
Strange, but when I asked about getting phone service I didn't need, just to save money on a bundle, they said my bill would go up. This was Cox. Go figure!
One of my employees wanted to switch his land line and bundle it with his cable. So he called the cable company, and they verified his account pin number by his cell phone number they had on file. Then he gave them his current land line phone number he wanted to keep the same. Everything verified, no problems.
Until they hooked up his land line, they called in the CELL PHONE (!) number to disconnect the existing service, and use that as his land line number. Now, his cell phone carrier is charging him for early disconnection, he has two land lines paying full price, and no cell phone.
Ah, the wonders of private corporations' efficiency...
The AHC act does needs some changes if the Republicans would allow them. But their mission is to destroy any insurance for those that need it. As Gov. R. Perry of TX says. if you get sick just go to the ER, people don't need insurance. 30% of the population in TX is uninsured and Perry will not help them. As long as he is well insured by the tax payers he doesn't care and that is the opinion of all Tea Party members. We are well insured, to H**L with the general population of this state and nation.
The author forgot to propose selling the meat to Asian countries to reduce the trade debt.
