Re: “Never Forgotten Brother

It sounds like a drug deal gone bad. No doubt the killer told somebody.

Good luck to you Ms Whitfield. Somebody is going to have to help the Police with info.

Gee, do you think that Cuffari's patronage job with the county might have something to do with his change of heart?

Re: “Guest Commentary

Mr Mayor, why are my TEP bills increasing with all the reduction in usage? Can I continue to expect to pay more for less?

Just like my water bill?

Re: “Guest Commentary

People gotta vote, and pay attention. Unfortunate that Kennedy and Holway lost their ACC races…they'd be fighting to safeguard solar incentives in Arizona.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Sounds like reduced regulation is the paid back for fossil fuel funded politics. Lets consider the next generation in our thinking NOT our portfolio.

Millers tactics do nothing for her. She reminds me of a teenager trying to break into the "POPULAR CROWD"

Re: “Claim Jumper

Why is it that Miller is constantly finding herself in controversy? Stop playing games and start working on behalf of your constituents. That is your job.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Solar energy, both small-residential and large-public, should be considered a national security benefit, guaranteeing energy production even if private utilities are sabotaged or otherwise diminished. If the Corporation Commission just looks at private profits and ignores national security, they are wrong, they are foolish and they are incredibly short-sighted.

Re: “The Battle for a Solar Arizona

Its simple math, what ever the power meter indicates is the rate of consumption. Since most residential solar do not exceed the average rate nor peak consumption in the summer months, the result of power being put onto the "grid" is a wash. However, by shifting peak rates to when solar is not producing an output is sticking it to all the customers. TEP is a namesake nationally owned private power utility company looking to sustain their retirement funds.

Re: “Beyond the Bump and Grind

I second everything Rambo said above, and also add that there's a pool of independent performers including myself, Nikki Riot, Kitten Minx LaFemme, Gypsy Danger, and many others. I also produce shows.

Congratulations to the producers of the Arizona Burlesque Festival - opening night was amazing and overall you have really outdone yourself. And I bet it's only going to go get better. ;)

Re: “Beyond the Bump and Grind

The Tucson burlesque scene is indeed thriving, with Black Cherry Burlesque (Tucson's, and possibly Arizona's, longest-running troupe) and Don't Blink Burlesque as the two main thriving troupes in town that put on shows on a regular basis (monthly and weekly, respectively). I encourage everyone to partake of all the burlesque shows that this scene has to offer, as they provide different perspectives on and interpretations of burlesque. There are at least two or three other shows that occur on a semi-regular basis in town... Switchblade Parade, Whiskey Breath Burlesque, and Book Club Burlesque, all at various venues. Although our town is small, the breadth of our scene is vast.

However, I'd like to bring attention to the fact that there is another troupe in town of male performers; there are more than three "boylesque" performers in this scene. As one of the three, I'd like to bring readers to the attention of The Manly Manlesque Show, a quarterly male burlesque revue and troupe that has been putting on shows for the past year at The Surly Wench Pub (Black Cherry's venue). Although there is a tendency to label all male burlesque as "boylesque," The Manly Manlesque show offers a new eponymous -esque ('manlesque") that showcases a different aesthetic (a cis-gender male-next-door perspective, we can call it). Our shows are highly popular in the local scene and enjoyed by women *and* men of all gender expressions and sexual orientations.

As one of the members of The Manly Manlesque Show, I'd also like to inform readers that we are having our next show on Friday November 21st, 2014. There are four dedicated members of our troupe: Magic Kenny Bang-Bang, Rooster, Patch and myself. "Boylesque" performer three in town, Paco Fish, is guest performing at The Manly Manlesque Show, and we have a couple of new performers as well who will be gracing the stage for the first time. Tickets and information can be found on

I once again encourage the readers to seek out shows for all the burlesque troupes and revues in Tucson. Come to the Arizona Burlesque Festival going on this weekend, come to Black Cherry Burlesque's monthly shows every first Friday at the Surly Wench Pub, to Don't Blink Burlesque's shows every Tuesday night at The Hut, to the Manly Manlesque Show this November 21st (also at the Surly Wench Pub), and seek out the smaller troupes and revues (Switchblade Parade, Whiskey Breath Burlesque, and Book Club Burlesque. Partake of all that this scene has to offer: the old, the new, the unconventional :)

Re: “9 Things for Last Minute Voters to Know

Even when Bill Clinton's popularity was at his lowest, he still went out to campaigning for his colleges, but yet Obama was very quiet during this last one which asks the question was he quiet because he was afraid it would be detrimental to the Democrats election chances or did was he quiet because he has already planned to run our country his way no matter what the out come was?
