Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

This is what democracy looks like! What an experience to be part of this march, to hear our Mayor Rothschild give a supportive speech, to see and hear enthusiasm for joining together to support what so many of us believe in: autonomy over our own bodies, women's rights, support for the downtrodden. Congratulations, Tucson Weekly for the great video. I have sent it onward via Youtube.

Reinstates ban on funds promoting abortion overseas...
Meetings with execs, labor leaders...
Set to battle Republicans on spending cuts...
Wants to slash regs by 75% -- or 'maybe more'...
Discusses fighting terrorism in phone call with Sisi... Drudge Report

If you watch NBC you would think the President stole the MLK bust.

Later they admitted they had faked the news. A leopard can not change his spots.

NBC has spots.

Re: “Danehy

Apparently, CW13 has no interest in truth. Just wait for President Trump to do exactly what he said he would. CW will probably be the first to whine, and he will probably be one of the loudest. The chickens are coming to roost, and a great many who voted for this moron will not believe what he has in store for them. He is not interested in anyone who is not in the top 1%.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

What real reason is it you took this little walk. Just exactly what rights is. It that you feel are not already given to you? Because when privilege is talked about the only ones that I see that have this thing are females and minorities. But I won't even go down that minority bit. Cause I'd never get an answer over the cries of how racist and bigoted I am but then you would not have to answer me would you. In fact let's be honest none of you that would have voted for Hillary were doing so because of her non existent policies. Most of you voted for her for the simple reason she was just that, a she. And you don't want equality, just like All Sharpton and his followers,you want to be given something extra because the American male didn't see fit to say all men and women were created equal. And anyone who does not think like that is a woman hater, or a bigot, or racist. Yet it's not ok for someone to be derogatory to you because we as men must be "gentlemen". Well girls (and I use that term lightly her) when you show me that there'll be no more double standard, no more coming into a work place and demanding equal pay when you can't do the work. No more bullshit of crying discrimination when in fact you lied on the application then you might get equality. But you really don't want that. You are the ones that should be called the deplorable. Btw I am a misogynist. In fact I detest 90% of all females in today's world. Not because in some cases your better then me. Not because some have turned me down. But because of your double standards.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Linda wouldn't have had any way to know this, but she became a "star-in-waiting" with 'Different Drum'. For those of us who were paying attention then - and who had their ears to the ground, she was welcomed with open arms. It was never a matter, for the listening public, that she'd end up being a 'one hit wonder'; she had already walked through the door. It wasn't a matter of 'if, it was a matter of 'when'. All it would take was another 'successful' 45, and in 1970, with 'Long Long Time', she came closer. Then, everybody knows what happened in late 1974 with 'Heart Like A Wheel' and 'You're No Good'. But the point is, she already had a seat at the table in 1967; it was just a matter of time. I'm so happy that she stuck with her career. All of us are the richer for that decision.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl

Terry Lee most likely had heard Peter, Paul & Mary's 'A Soalin' before adapting some of it for 'Flight Thirteen'. PP&M were huge during this period. Their 'In Concert' LP, from 1964, got to #4 on Billboard.

Here's their version from that LP:

Re: “Vintage Vinyl Tucson

'Don't Blow Your Mind' is a damn good record! Thinking back, it's amazing how relatively open local radio playlists were then - and how completely wired teenagers were to AM radio. FM was just for "serious" music like Classical, Jazz and "Easy Listening".

Thanks, also, for the local history about Copper State Studio. Looking at that address on 'Street View', the building to the right of #211, with the sunburst grills on the windows, sure looks as though it could've been a recording studio once. Is this the same building or was the original torn down to put up 'The Cadence' apartments? Anybody know?

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

Just so I'm clear on this giant waste of time and energy. They marched because of something a successful tycoon said 12 years ago about being a playboy. That's the justification for this great gathering of ignorance. Sure glad you all live in a free country! I noticed how much effect it had! None!

Re: “The New Old School

Sorry to disagree with you McSmelly supporters, but Wise guy has every right not to support a business that has supported a Koch brother puppet. Mr. Elefante has every right to support McSmelly, but he has to deal with the consequences of his actions. That being said, I will miss eating at Mama Louisa's as the food is fantastic. So for all you Trumpanzees who need somewhere to eat after your Klan meeting, I would suggest eating there.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

The TW's Priscilla and Ella chronicles, with comments blocked, epitomizes the hypocrisy of a publication that claims to be the "alternative press" and champion of free speech, while censoring same.

I sincerely hope the children's parents have set aside enough money to pay for these girls' required eventual counseling., but my hunch is no.
