Re: “Editor's Note

Was the inside cover of anyone's paper copy all fudged? There was some red text, but it wasn't the complete text. Was quite odd. I guess the new publisher isn't used to printing so many color copies?

Re: “Editor's Note

Tempest DuJour is a Tucson treasure. Match Game is probably one of my all-time favorite game shows and the fact that Tempest and her panelists keep it as bawdy as Brett Sommers, Charles Nelson Reilly, Betty White, Richard Dawson and the other "regulars" did in the 70s....ah, bliss. :)

I have nothing but faith that her version of Hollywood(ish) Squares will be nothing but hilarious. Can't wait to see how they create the tic-tac-toe structure. :)

Re: “Editor's Note

I dumped my Star subscription 8 years ago, after their editorial page went to hell. Like most news outlets they have adopted a milk toast "lets not piss anybody off" editorial posture. To their credit they still have Fitz. I scan their iPad App daily, but their emphasis seems to be on local sports. For 20 years I subscribed to both the New York Times and the Arizona Daily Star. The fact of the matter is the NYT's does a better job of covering many major Arizona Issues than the Star or the Arizona Republic does. Their has been much better coverage on how global warming has affected Arizona and immigration issues over the past 10 years in the NYT, you get from either Arizona's papers. They at lease have two writers on the ground in Arizona. Any article about anything in the NYT's that runs 2,000 words, ends up being 400 words by the time it get printed in the Star. Newspaper revenues peaked in 2002 and heading downhill in the 30 degree nosedive ever since. Newspapers have to be 60% ads to pay for the news print and as ad revenue has tanked, so have the column inches devoted to news.

I take no joy in these assessments, but the $32 bucks a month I give the NYT's for a M-F print subscription and full digital access I look at as my little contribution to keep real Journalism alive. Much like my PBS donation.

The NYT is not perfect newspaper (remember the lead up the the Iraq) but it has 500 reporters world wide and is the major new gathering organization in the world and one of the few place left where long forum Journalism lives.

SonoranWinds: They don't see to have an issue with our coverage choices at all. You can decide for yourself whether that's a good or bad decision on their part.

Re: “Editor's Note

i got a little worried when i didn't see the Weekly at my weekly Wednesday Trader Joe's shopping excursion...i'm hoping that everything is okay with your delivery person. unfortunately Trader Joe's was out of organic zucchini and mayo, luckily they had plenty of greek yogurt and broccoli slaw.

Heard it all before:-the humming sound from the city rook is the small crowd of resumes warming up. Whenever ANYONE says, " don't worry, you can all keep your jobs, here at
( fill in the blanks...........) - warm up your resumes.........trust me.

Re: “Editor's Note

Frank Antinori just said on Wake Up Tucson that he "likes the smell of Mammoth in the morning". Proving that he's the Neanderthal that I know he is.

Next time you're on the show Dan, ask DeSimone what that smell is coming from the show.

It's no wonder Steve K is outta there.

Keep up the good work. The Daily Star is a joke compared to the Weekly.

I, for one, am thrilled things should be business as usual. I look forward to continuing to get a fresh copy each week while getting a fresh rye bread from Beyond Bread.
