How did saguaro print leggings not make the list? Come onnnnnn Tucsonnnnnn :)
CCP wasn't anywhere near capacity, BTW.
JB Salmon's ACTUAL quote, if facts matter to you, was:
“Tell them... tell the team to bear down.”
Kanye West is truly a douche bag of the first magnitude. Amazing that anyone really considers this man a talented artist...
I checked out WOB last night with a couple of friends who were aware of the facebook/yelp exchange. We had a great experience. I usually can't stand TV filled sports bars (I don't like watching or listening to sports) but last night they had all the tv's muted and there was a really talented musician playing all kinds of good cover songs. Also there was an employee either on break or who had just finished his shift when we walked in and he was really helpful with suggestions when we told him what styles of beer we liked. They have petrus aged sour pale ale and Mead on tap! Mead on tap in Tucson! I couldn't believe it! I don't even think you can get a glass of mead from a bottle in any restaurant/bar in Tucson, much less on Tap! We had a few beers and sat outside for a couple hours and the employees were really attentive and super friendly. Which was really refreshing given the tendency for a certain hipster pretentiousness that is very detectable in a lot of the newer downtown businesses and is a reason I avoid some places downtown. The whole initial yelp/facebook flap is unfortunate but I don't think it's going to have a very big impact on this business in the long run. They have a great location, an amazing product selection-probably the best in Tucson, and the place seemed to be managed really well on the thursday night I was there, so I for one am glad to have yet another great place to enjoy in Tucson.
Embarrassing. The AIA is a laughingstock.
I wouldn't trust anything the Salvation Army says or does, until they publicly take responsibliity for injuring and nearly killing a 6 yr old little boy. Besides I've heard that they love to stock pile items donated and their people pick over items before they get distributed. When they are willing to be open and truthful, perhaps more people will be open with their pocketbooks.
Mark S -- like most of the cowardly dems I've run into here in Baja Arizona, I believe you've got it backwards...
I think the filibuster should be eliminated on ALL legislation in the Senate...
The main result, the increasingly Democratic base will be even more motivated to Get Out and Vote -- 'cause the alternative with a bat-crap crazy republican Congress is unthinkable... The Dems won't have the filibuster to fall back on in extremis and will have to influence policy the old-fashioned way -- vote in better legislators...
and WTF have dems been able to pass (other than a REPUBLICAN 'health care' bill, more money for war and the sequester) thanks to the filibuster's massive overuse by the obstructionist republicans...?
Don't worry bslap, as the water runs out here in the Southwest (thanks to global warming) and Tucson empties (the most affluent bugging out first)...
there will be PLENTY of copper in them, thar' hills -- all of those empty McMansions will be a treasure trove of metals and building materials for the 20 or 30 thousand souls that this region could possibly support without cheap petroleum...
Why are there any alcaldes for this child molester/sexual predator?
From time to time? It is more like he is an Asshat 24/7. He is just another reason to move to Costa Rica.
Most competent politicians keep up with the daily political views and bills, Guess she really is not concerned as we see most Republicans, as they just vote NAY each time. So they don't have to keep up or have any knowledge of bills
Her comments show us that Republicans and the Tea Party really don't understand how to be a law makers, They are not prepared for making decisions and key votes. Currently they vote NAY on everything. But voters continue to elect them to office. But these are voters that don't care or incompetent
Man the haters come out in droves when you talk about the creepy old man who doesn't like the brown people.
Marty the pendulum will shift at some point to the right.....in fact it might already be happening based on our presidents 37% approval rating. Republicans will have the senate at some point and elephants have a long memory.
I'm not a big fan of Rosemont, but like everyone else on this board, I use copper in my daily life. If Davidson Canyon and Cienega Creek are waters of "national importance" then is there really anywhere in the United States where the EPA *would* allow a copper mine to be built? Is the plan going forward to just import all of our copper from countries with no environmental regulation?
Just an FYI Clas 300 with Dr. Soren is at the U of A and not PCC.
Actually, the ecological disaster is all the people moving illegally into the country.
If I were interviewing Ms. McSally for an executive position in my company, I would ask her questions that would help me to determine whether she had taken the time to get to know our company and marketplace. Great leadership/management candidates are the people who have done their research and have taken the time to understand our challenges & opportunities. Philosophy is nice, but it doesn't let me know that someone has the knowledge and skill set to lead the company.
As a private citizen with no interest in a political office, I know where to find legislation and have a short list of people I can contact if I need more information on policy or legislative information. I take the time to stay informed -- not just as a voter, but in case I need to advocate for my work, family, etc.. To imply that this process is too complicated to handle outside of an elected office is absurd. More disturbing still to hear a political candidate imply that they just don't have the time to inform themselves as a private citizen.
This article just cost Ms. McSally one vote.
I doubt there are too many voters who are going to make their electoral decisions based on this issue. If Democrats are going to pay a price for this action it will only be if voters put them in the minority. Based on the actions of the Republican Party that is most likely not going to happen any time soon.
