This store brought me into a world 20 years ago that I have never left. Punk rock is tribe and I feel much pride in saying that Toxic Ranch was my homeland. I remember living in the dump basement apartment across the alley and coming out to defend the store during the UofA basketball riots one year. The cops thought we were rioters too and shot at me with beanbags! But the store windows survived as far as I remember...Thanks Bill for always keeping me plush on nirvana t-shirts and 45s. Wish I were in Tucson to see you off!
Rip, I'm flattered that you'd confuse me with Dan. But make sure you read things fully before jumping down someone's throat.
Obama is certainly not a superstar; the health care debacle proves that much alone. At the same time, I'm not convinced that anyone else who may have filled his desk chair would have done any different, policy-wise (Obamacare aside).
Hurri, this is the fourth Word Odyssey column, and I've got about 40 more already written, so I won't be short of material any time soon!
This is pretty tragic, but if Bill's at peace with it, I should be too. It's always somewhat annoying when a property owner starts gassing on about doing something different with a place that a business has been in for a long time, though. But it's their place, I guess... I fear a new yupster "bistro" may be on the way.
Toxic is a grand oasis of genuineness and good taste in a world gone mad!!! All the best to Bill and Julianna!
No brainer. Al Perry. He even ran for president.
There are many who merit being "busted." I often wondered why anyone would wish to have their effigy on which pigeons will freely defaecate?
How long has this feature been in existence without my knowledge? I can imagine material will run short before long, but I'll enjoy it in the meantime.
You honestly need to get your head checked. Blind Man Deaf Boy are a group of amazing musicians, and great kids doing the things they love.
The food at the Parish is not particularly inspiring.
Mountain View, California, has FREE parking throughout its downtown -- on-street and in garages just behind the street-facing retail buildings.
Question - can you take the tax credit for just one contribution per year, or if you make contributions to multiple organizations that serve the working poor, can you get multiple credits?
Again, its not it's.
Joy's desserts are among THE BEST in this 'burg!
Martha McSally should read this:
She is out of line. On this and most everything else.
The "cuts" to military retirees' pensions are for those under 62, presumably still working, many at big defense contractors. So they ain't hurtin' too much! Oh, and the MILITARY recommended this budgetary action.
Wish they'd bring back a few more copy editors. Way too many mistakes in the print product every day, 'specially in the Sports section.
Egualamente, mi amigo.
Thank you, ronko. Happy Holidays to you.
Typically I disagree w/CW13's comments. Yet his first 6 sentences are on point. Mandela was one of the worlds great heroes and Danehy's comments today, much like the talking heads and politicians he aptly criticizes bring more attention to himself and his poor writing on the topic. Mandela's life speaks for itself and deserves to be celebrated, not pontificated. Mandela deserved better from this paper. Thanks a lot, Danehy for putting me in the position of me agreeing at least in part with my usual idealistic foe. CW13 who I tend to disagree with often speaks with good sense and respect even though I usually disagree. I do not dislike Rush and his conservative ilk for expressing their conservative ideals, it's the delivery that is annoying, arrogant and aggressive. In this column Danehy's delivery is dangerously close to those he despises.
Icecld: Just an oversight on the upload. I'll put it up later today.
