Do you have title or date for the Wharton study? I would very much like to read it. By the way Kentop, the Indian Removal Act was not the result of a war. It was and is theft. With diabetics and TB rates 8 times the National average, not too mention astronomical rates for all other diseases, including a a suicide rate 3 times the national average, it is fair to call the BIA reservations America's killing fields. There was no Indian War the policy remains the byproduct of Andrew Jackson's Indian Removal Act. Why are you so afraid to give the tribes fee simple title to their land?
I worked WITH an Indian casino in Oregon, I know. The ass't manager referred to opening a new casino in a brand new neighborhood as "giving a gift of cancer." After consulting with the resort's Security officer who told me, one year after opening all the crime stats you can think of leap frogged including rape, robbery and divorce, including parking lot shottings, I'd say prepare for everything. Wharton School did a rather dispassionate study on same. Look it up. It's ugly.
So happy to be moving in these directions. I picture this wonderful harvest from Seattle to Tucson.
Watching last week, it became apparent to me that the game has changed, but UA hasn't. Pitchers are not as dominant with the new, lighter ball; there are fewer slap hitters (which I always found kinda silly) and the players are more aggressive and athletic. And why in the world were the Cats taking the first pitch when they were behind by 4 runs? The Baylor pitcher was aware of that and tossed cantaloupes over the plate every time.
Two words-Jerry Kindall. Sometimes the game gets past you. Recruiting has sagged the past few years. Even the today's Star Candrea was promising better recruits. Don't shot the messenger.
Basis does not "produce" outstanding students; they were already that when they were enrolled. Credit goes to the parents.
Great report, most of the gun enthuses in this country won't believe this report.
Thanks for setting the record straight.
Turn all states "Green" This country is missing out on billions of dollars by not growing hemp and marijuana crops. Jobs, jobs, jobs. Congress needs to get their heads out of their asses. This would create hundreds of thousands of jobs.
Hilarious take on the Maxim Hottest.
Where I agree with almost everything you said in that part of your article, most of all how annoying Jack Bauer's daughter was.. I still have to say she is smoking hot.
In any event, when I saw this year's "Hot" top ten, I could not help but think to myself the people that picked it were not of voting age.
Exactly, one of the best softball coaches in the country and some alleged sports writer who has nothing better to do is ready to throw the guy under the bus! What non-sense.
Riorican: My mistake and now corrected.
Radio is good, other than political talk radio. TV? Not so much. I watched Mad Men once, and didn't see justification for "greatest drama ever" hype. The guy worried about what suit to wear, and his secretary about her status at the office. Really? I remember the British series The Prisoner. Originality these days is more about office politics or special effects. Zombies and vampires. Give me a great radio play, or an audiobook. Audio is always better for you than video because you exercise your imagination. TV is driven by ratings, and Coke ads. They don't care so much about quirky stuff like you mention. They're shooting for the mass audience, a demographic that includes NASCAR fans who munch on pork rinds while drinking Pepsi and call it paradise. --JL editor, Tower Review
Why hate on a school that produces outstanding students? I guess he'd be happier with a race to mediocrity so everyone can feel good about themselves?
As far as the Maxim top 100, I think it's probably not aimed at those qualified for AARP membership. If you don't think Selena Gomez is gorgeous, you probably need a visit to your cardiologist to see if your heart is still beating.
Candrea is the University of Arizona softball coach. Period! Griping about down years like this column does is disgraceful. I hope Coach Candrea ignores the drivel in this column.
@W Corvi: I'm not sure where you came up with "THOUSANDS" of awards the Arizona Press Club dishes out.
I just worked my way down through its 2013 awards booklet (link below) and it's true there are many awards, but hardly thousands. (I also found no award for that Flagstaff paper you mentioned.
The booklet is good reading.
I found myself copying out leads to award-winning pieces to read later on.
Here's the link: http://azpressclub.files.wordpress.com/201…
Did you mean to type Nogales International rather than Nogales Independent?
Been seeing big improvements there over the last few years. Worth a look now and then, online at nogalesinternational.com
The Arizona Press Club gives out THOUSANDS of awards each year - to the dozen papers in AZ. So it's no surprise that each comes home with hundreds of awards. For example, the Flag Rag pulled down the coveted 'best newspaper in southwest Flagstaff'. Their subscription rate is pathetic, and when they started charging to read it on the web, NO ONE subscribed! They even quit publishing on Mondays, since there was nothing in that edition anyway. But, it still brings home hundreds of awards from the Arizona Press Club.
The gun nuts want to keep guns in the hands of the 'bad guys' because that is the only way they can use their guns to overcome the 'bad guys.' And thus be the 'heroes.'
