Re: “Tumamoc Hill: A User's Guide

This story makes absolutely no sense. For example: "Take a flashlight so you know where to put your feet, and try not to shine it on the hillside or on people", so what's the purpose of the flashlight? Your only option is to the sky, since you are not to use it on the "hillside" for guidance.
Where to actually begin the journey would be extremely useful. Example, parking, etc.

Re: “Danehy

John Greenway is being replaced by Goldwater because an idiot from Phoenix (John Droggs) happened to visit the Statuary Hall and thought who the hell is John Greenway. So he started an effort to get rid of Greenway and replace him with Goldwater. Typical Phoenix asshole. Driggs ignored our state's mining history or didn't care.
Greenway will be placed in a dumping ground park in Phoenix. From what I figure its a place where Arizona dumps its unwanted statues and memorials.
Look at it this way in 80 years or so someone will replace Goldwater with someone else.

Re: “Ask a Mexican

I always thought "Mande" sorta morphed in vernacular translation to "tell me" or "explain".

Re: “Time Market

Love the place. They clearly care about the food they make. They search for good ingredients. I eat there a couple of times a week. Coffees really good. The salmon sandwich has a Meyer lemon condiment. Not sure staff knows how to use it. Most of the time, 2 out of 3, there is far too much of it, It’s very salty, it overwhelms the sandwich.

Re: “The Skinny

Is Miller going to credit Pima County for building the waste water treatment plants $115 million UNDER budget? I personally know someone on the job whose construction crew alone accounted for $5 million of the savings.
Oh yeah, and he got laid off last week.

Re: “Arne Duncan Edges Toward Not-So-Common Core Standards

A confederacy of Dunces. I love the man on the street interviews where all the young dudes and dudetts cannot id the year WW2 ended.

Ok here is the Gandalf approved Common Core.

This is what you need to be a smart guy:

Math. Simple math, ok ...very simple math, teach the kids how to balance a check book.

English. Teach the kids how to read and write. (again, keep it simple)

History. American and world history. A nice outline would be great.

Music. (music makes you smarter)

That is it. Easy.

Now when you find your passion in life, advanced math, the arts, business, then you can get into the advanced studies. Most people have a talent. It is the education system's duty to help you find your talent. It is your job to develop your talent(s)

You can thank me later.

Re: “Danehy

Kentop - "Writing about it" is expensive? Also, in consideration of all things time-wasteful, where would you rank reading and posting about it?

Re: “Ask a Mexican

To me the word mande is a form of respect taught by your parents. What's wrong with that? Whether you abide by it-- "command me" is another thing.

Re: “A Discussion Of The Non-renewal of Catalina High's Principal

I taught at Catalina HS for 18 years and Rex Scott is one of the best principals we ever had. Ever since TUSD replaced Linda Schloss as principal Catalina HS became a wonderful place to learn and work. I cannot address any facts about the this school year because of the one bad decision, ending the AFJROTC program, made by Rex Scott. Rex and his two assistant principals, Dave Berry and Pablo Madrid have been doing a great job of trying to improve the student performance and should be praised for their efforts. No one ever seems to address where the ultimate responsibility lies for student achievement and that is with the individual student and parents. The responsibility for a great school belongs to all parties, administrators, teachers, parents and students. The state rating system doesn't take all this into consideration and is therefore extremely flawed. Except for one bad decision, Rex has been doing a outstanding job and should continue as principal at Catalina HS.

Re: “The Skinny

re PACC -- Sadly, regarding the political footballs that (children and) animals are in our fair city/county, roughly, the majority of the animals, hurt and homeless, that come into the PACC, are from three main zip codes. it appears to be much easier for politicians to debate a 22$ million dollar building then it is for them to debate (and fund) the moral, ethical, cultural issues surrounding altering animals in those locations.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, thank you for writing this. I for one enjoyed learning about our on-going history. It is sad to say that some people are not nearly as productive, all we can learn from them is their ability to criticize.

Re: “Media Watch

To all of the critics of "Professional" Wrestling..........don't you get it?

The WWE is nothing but a Soap Opera aimed at men. You have your good guys, your villains, (often the two are interchangeable), and you have several "story lines" going on.

Just like All MY Children except Erica is played by The Undertaker.

Just about anything at 'Aqui con El Nene', the semi-permanent 'food mobile' (not a truck) at the corner of Flowing Wells and Wetmore, needs to be on this list.

Re: “Still Suppressing

Don't you get it J.M.? We got it when we got home from Vietnam. It was made perfectly clear to us.

Once the fighting is over.............AMERICA DON'T GIVE A SH*T.

Sadly, now a new generation of veterans will learn this lesson.

Re: “Danehy

What? Lute Olson doesn't have a statue in the rotunda? This oversight must be corrected immediately! Deciding whose statue is on display in the nation's capitol is the most trivial, expensive waste of time ever. So is writing about it.
