Re: “Editor's Note

Just when I thought we might have a sensible board.

Re: “Editor's Note

I like the new website design. Very clean and crisp.

Re: “Editor's Note

I like the new "thin" Weekly, folds easily and fits in the back pocket. Perfect for carrying to the galleries, restaurants, etc.

When the new owners bought TW, the buzz was they would fire people, thin down the news and try to sell more ad space, which they did; we all thought it was to make it more attractive to a potential buyer or some other sinister motive, but turns out they just don't know any better

Re: “Editor's Note

I hope this leads to more coverage of the non-popular music scene. The AZO may not be much in the greater scheme of things, but they deserved more than one short paragraph in the fall write up that ignored most of their season.

Re: “Editor's Note

I can't tell the difference between those that attack my comments and staff.

Their opinions are identical.

Re: “Editor's Note

Harlan: Hardly true. I have zero desire in "controlling" anyone and many of the articles we run, I have distinct ideological differences with. You may disagree with the general overall editorial direction of the paper, but that idea that we're not honest, truthful or clear seems like a stretch.

Re: “Editor's Note

You only want writers that you can control. You dont want the real truth, you want your slant. Why not be honest and clear. Oh, what does that mean?

Re: “Editor's Note

It's not just print media, or online. How about TV? Mentions all over with the "Great Food Truck Race" stop in Tucson, on Food Network this weekend. Tucson is quickly turning into a food truck town, with lots of vendors and some great food.

Now, this TV show didn't include local foodies in their "race", but wouldn't it have been nice to know they were here, IN MAY? Or is it too much to ask locals (other than obvious "invitees") to participate? Same thing last year, when the program "Chopped" recorded five weekly episodes out at Old Tucson. Granted, "Chopped" doesn't include a studio audience, but it would have been nice to know they were here, while they were here. Added insult, NO mention of Old Tucson in their credits or anywhere else during that 5 week run. Only complaints about the wind, and the cold temperatures.

Maybe "Visit Tucson" can send a note to FN's home office. You want a warmer welcome? Let Tucsonans know when you are here!

"So many are so overworked, underpaid and stressed that they have no time to give thought to primary elections."
Lazy and ignorant is more like it. Any one who can't be bothered to take 2 minutes to fill in their mail-in ballot (and maybe spend a few hours watching the News, reading the web, or newspaper to find out who to vote for) shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Ralph Hill needs to get back on his meds. Or maybe, it is his meds talking.

Re: “Editor's Note

People have been saying that the city, country and world is coming to an end ever since the first memory of my Dad saying it when hippies grew their hair long.

If anyone can provide a specific time that this will happen, I'd like to plan for it.

Re: “Editor's Note

What has the republican party did since Lincoln? Herbert Hoover, Nixon, Reagan, Bush Sr., Bush Jr., great depression, Watergate scandal, Amnesty for millions of illegals ironic joke on the right wing who see him as their messiah, father to a former drunk who had his other son steal a election in Florida with hanging chads the former drunk son, the last one asleep on watch during 9/11, housing bubble bust, stock market crash, a huge unemployment disaster, yes stellar results!

Re: “Editor's Note

Just a quick follow-up, didn't anyone notice that I posted at 12:29? 2 + 9 = 11. 12:11? It's like time is counting down. To what?

Re: “Editor's Note

You may have more influence than you realize. So many are so overworked, underpaid and stressed that they have no time to give thought to primary elections.
That you take the primary seriously and are willing to state your picks is commendable, and if just a few read it, appreciate it and vote accordingly, it will have been worthwhile.
By the way, I agree that Smith is the best Republican choice. I look forward to reading more of your picks.

Re: “Editor's Note

Ralph's comment is interesting. Have you taken a good look at what Tucson has become and who is in charge?

Re: “Editor's Note

Dan, I agree with you. However, primary voters, whether it be Democrat or Republican, tend to prefer symbolism over substance.

The others are pontificating over things they have no control over, and very little influence over.

Re: “Editor's Note

As a democrat got no dog in the republican primary fight! I am voting for whom ever the democrats run, am a bit tired of the republican geniuses who have done such a bang up job for the state!
