> To all the fat chics suffering it out in Tucson: maybe you should just move?
Not just move, but move MORE and eat LESS.
When I worked at Evergreen Air Center at Marana in the late 70's and early 80's, I gained a lot of inside knowledge about the connections of that national company and their sub-contracting work for the CIA. I approached Chuck Bowden's City Magazine and contributed a story on my experience there. The two of us, plus another man from his magazine, who has since died of cancer all lunched, ran through the piece and discussed publishing it. I was in awe of his writing, reputation and lack of guile. I learned a lot from that experience. It published and they got a lot of feedback. Later, I wrote a 5 part series for the Star, and brushed up against Chuck who was in the building. His writing was so inspiring his columns were collectible. I still have a lot of them in my files. His television appearances were brave, when talking about drugs and the Mexican police being interconnected. His early piece on a Mafia chieftain's funeral here in Tucson I thought was a watershed experience in his writing.
