Re: “A Democrat in Trumpland

Raul is one of the few !Bueno! things coming out of AZ. The man has empathy and compassion. Disrupt the corrupt electoral system. The popular vote doesn't count. Here we go 'W' again. I guess folks returning in body bags, may, make the pendulum swing back again. Disrupt the fascist state. Disrupt Trump. Bring back Democracy to the poor Nation.

Re: “A Democrat in Trumpland

About the only thing !Bueno! coming out of extremist AZ is Rual Grijalva. A man and Representative with empathy and compassion. Down with the Fascist State, Disrupt the corrupt electoral system! The popular vote doesn't count. Disrupt every move Trump makes. This evil cat will be 'W' on steroids. Welcome back the long endless wars. Many people have to die, regrettably, before sanity and the pendulum swings back, maybe? Peoples son's and daughters coming back in body bags, I guess? is what it will take. Resist the fascist state....by Disrupting 'IT'.

Seriously, from Standing Rock to "Lalopalooza" -- worst segue ever, even with the rock and roll headline.

Re: “A Democrat in Trumpland

Grijalva has my respect: he keeps things real. SB1070 was bad law - the boycott was unfortunate, but it spoke to the issue for workers. However, in "post fact" life, I suppose the commenters above have a point.

Re: “A Democrat in Trumpland

That's because he cares more about Mexico then the U.S.A.

Re: “A Democrat in Trumpland

Remember when he founded the "Boycott Az" movement and put his own people in the local hotel / tourist industry out of work. Shame.

Re: “Hotel Heights

I fail to see the "Hispanic" influence. Furthermore, why would it matter?

Grijalva is not a Democrat, he's a Socialist.

Re: “Escape Goat

So people who rage against government and regulations of all kinds including clean air and water want state government censors?

Re: “A Democrat in Trumpland

Grijalva is worried about the private sector getting too much power? Most of our problems today are his fault.

How can he miss Castro's funeral?

Re: “Hotel Heights

As a U of A alum who first arrived off an America West flight (or was it Southwest?) from Oakland in 1990, and been back a few times since I moved to Phoenix...not sure if I'll use this hotel either, unless I get a super sweet deal on Priceline. Can the Holiday Inn-Radisson owned by greedy HSL please reopen? Absolutely NOTHING wrong with that hotel. That was a cool hotel and an awesome value. Best room service breakfast ever. Friendly staff for the most part. Unacceptable that it is being left to rot because of basically a peeing contest between the city of Tucson and HSL. In general, I have mixed feelings about the gentrification/Austinization of downtown Tucson and the U of A. Happy to see amenities that frankly should have been there in the 90s (I was screaming for light rail in Tucson as a U of A student and people called me nuts, "Tucson's not ready for that," Tucson's not LA, Phoenix, or the Bay Area...) but at what price, now that I look back with nostalgia on a Tucson that's a long way past the rearview mirror?

Re: “Hotel Heights

For me, this is exciting. Sort of.
I'll never use the hotel. Its a nice, visual thing for me and for many others as well who arrived in Tucson in the early seventies. Back then Tucson was already afflicted with the aftereffects (whoops, that was a mistake). of the downtown demolition of entire barrios to make way for a bunker complex designed by graduates of the East Berlin School of unwanted architecture. We installed a fountain in front of the community center with no shade whatsoever and it gradually died, being maintained by people who have gradually killed off all fountains downtown because as we all know, we live in the desert and fountains are bad because homeless people used them for bathing. Those same people also let the doors rot off the Leo Rich Theater. Since then, we've finally made some fixes to the complex and did some major overhaul work to the whole thing but gues what? It still sits underused most of the time. Marketing skills are lacking.
And who wants to come to this area for a conference or a good international get-together? It's hard to sell downtown still, with a music hall that looks like something from somewhere else, a broken fountain in front and an entire housing complex fenced off with a canvas fence, a revenge plot by HSL properties who also owns the dead hotel on the corner, which I affectionately have named the pink flamingo.
Whatever is going on between the City and HSL properties certainly deserves attention. Conferences have been held by design groups and the demolition of La Placita village was recommended. It was a failed project, and I would bet that some parts of that complex were NEVER occupied since it was built. But I digress. Soon the bus stop will be replaced by new construction as well. There's a grocery store downtown. The Chicago store is being fixed up for new occupants. Progress. No more funky art galleries, no more pharaoh store, no more grill. Hopefully the magazine store will survive. And hopefully, the people who move into the new places will also have ideas, because now its starting to look boring to me.
