Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Editor's Note

Re: “Editor's Note

What is being missed are the thousands of good and high paying jobs that Ray Carroll said no to. All those families that don't have the opportunity to earn a good living, have a career, provide for their children. And all the related businesses that would benefit from the increased commerce with "new" money, money that doesn't originate from the government.

But he's all in favor of giving 15 MILLION of your tax dollars to Mark Giffords, I mean Kelly.

5th poorest metro area in the country and Ray Carroll is damn proud of it.

Re: “Editor's Note

Is it just me? Or has the Weekly turned into the Weakly? No Savage Love, Ask a Mexican, other articles skipping issues. Are the new owners siphoning off cash? What is going on?

Re: “Editor's Note

Long-form journalism is out? If done right, I'd argue it shouldn't be.
Is this just because of the overstimulated ADD generation or the dumbing down of America?

Re: “Editor's Note

Americans have little time to read in depth articles. On line papers have turned the media into reactionaries to their readers rather than reporting breaking news. I don't see how it could change back as long as we have electricity.

Just like at the first 5 or so articles on the Star site. Pure fluff garbage. News of the weird. Is that what our town needs?

Re: “Editor's Note

I think that "Rock and Roll Suicide" should be broadcast over every radio station at least once in a while. Bowie's lasting message is in there. "You're not alone!"
None of us, no matter how conservative or liberal or whatever label we ascribe to, is alone. The weirdest of the weird and the straightest of the straight all have at least a dozen other someones out there. It's up to each of us to find our others, but we're not alone.

Oh, and "You're wonderful"
So turn on and be wonderful
'Cause you're wonderful.
No matter who you are.

Re: “Editor's Note

Why wasn't that the expense of the railroad rather than spending our tax dollars to protect ourselves from train parts?

You are right about dumping Ray Carroll.

Re: “Editor's Note

Congrats to Supv of the 4th district Ray Carroll and our Board of supervisor for spending $80,000 to pay for a "trail canopy" so by the off chance someone on that remote trail should be under it when a train comes over them, and by chance, something should come loose, like a rock, they will be protected. What happens if the whole track fails apart, a much more likely event because of our crumbling infrastructure? The canopy will probably kill them! I would suggest what my mother taught me when entering into dangerous situations. Look both ways and then cross the street. Besides being a crazy idea, how many potholes could be filled with $80,000? Please Citizens of Pima county, vote for Marla Closen and defeat the corrupt Board of supervisors who spends our money for patronage.

Re: “Editor's Note

Yes, n7lqv - but "another method to achieve their goal" would not have the instantly decimating effect that GUNS have had. Without GUNS, violent criminals, insane and otherwise, could not inflict the same degree of death, destruction and terrorism as they presently do.

Re: “Editor's Note

Adding more "gun controls" is not a solution to the problem of mental health issues. Proper diagnosis and treatment of those with such concerns would help lessen the tide of both murders and suicides.

Sadly, many persons receive little, or in many cases NO treatment for their problems. Many who continue having difficulty have chosen to stop taking helpful medications prescribed to them

There are too many facets to the question of "how to stop the violence" to expect instant success by imposing more restrictions on those who obey laws already in place.

Removing guns from the puzzle would just move those considering an act of violence simply to find another method to achieve their goal.

Re: “Editor's Note

"He had been suspended from Pima Community College in September 2010 because of his bizarre behavior and disruptions in classes and the library. After his arrest, two medical evaluations diagnosed him as paranoid schizophrenic and incompetent to stand trial. He was medicated while in jail as part of his treatment. He was again judged incompetent in May 2012."

Re: “Editor's Note

It wasn't gun violence that shot and killed, it was Jared Loughner.

How sad that the 'editor' would exploit this tragic, and possibly preventable, action to strip Americans of their constitutional rights. This isn't political, unfortunately this liberal hack is making it so. Very, very sad.

Climate change is nothing to be feared. It's cycical. Work to make something real, better. Reduce the size of government by taking on some responsibility.

I think what I fear most is reducing all of our choices to a simplistic dichotomy.
