Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

"Safety is small groups of like-minded people, and the group was so small in Tucson." I thought artsy rich ultra liberals were in this game for diversity? I guess diversity only works in safety of like minded groups.

Running from her fears. The explanations make no sense. I'm surprised she hasn't run from San Fransico. Thee are people there that hate the rich.

Re: “Whither Michelle Rhee? Whither K12 Inc.?

You can't improve public schools by demoralizing and threatening teachers. Perhaps all the money her organization got from billionaire donors would have been better spent supporting teachers and helping students.

Re: “Whither Michelle Rhee? Whither K12 Inc.?

I can't imagine online schools working well without constant parental supervision which in this day and age of two parent wage earners is near impossible to maintain. There are way too many distractions online. Then there is the issue of socialization that comes with the in school experience. If you don't have anywhere to go every day, You will inevitably gravitate to others who don't have anywhere to go every day and that's not going to end well.

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

A dwarf goes into an Irish pub and finds the most ginger, muscle bound, shamrock tattoo loving Irishman at the bar. He walks up and whispers to the ginger, "I'll buy the rest of your drinks if you let me give you a blow job". So the ginger picks up the dwarf, carries him to the alley and kicks the living hell out of him. Bad. A trash can went flying at one point. When the ginger returns to his seat, the bartender asks, "what did that dwarf say to you?" The ginger replies, "dunno, something about a job."

There's your Irish joke, gandalf.

Tucson Weekly.... Stop being stupid. It's only racist if you assume that the only people rioting were of a particular race..... Which would be racist.

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

To be fair, people who are looting probably do not work. I agree with Renee Bailey, it's more classist than racist. But it certainly walks a fine line.

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

I think the most sensible thing I have read is all law enforcement being required to wear body cameras, two things will happen, honest cops cannot be falsely accused, dishonest cops will either become honest or get fired, and a penalty ought to be used much like when one refuses a breathalyzer test, automatic suspension of drivers license, turning off a body camera automatic dismissal from job!

Mr. Arce just insulted me. Mexican profanity. That's the level he is at. Guess that is what he teaches and what people pay him for.

Re: “Marvelous Miz

Excellent production... Have seen performances of Les Miserables in Phoenix, Chicago (twice), New York, and ...Madrid, in Spanish.
Kudos to AO for putting this ensemble together, they and the cast are a credit to Tucson and our arts scene. AO is also to be commented for the community out reach that they do, especially noted, the complementary and free tickets they give to expand their future audience. Mr. Aguirre does have a bass voice as noted, a true baritone would have probably been more what is generally called for in this role. However, he did an admiral rendition, dramatic, forceful, colored, convincing. Would love to see him in a traditional bass role.
Unfortunate, the production run was short, the performance was SOLD OUT, I understand contractual and production cost limitations, ...but, it could have easily run TWICE as long.

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

One has to remember some of Jon Justices most famous/infamous guests, the now in jail founder of the minute men on charges of child molestation, the former state senate president who hob knobbed with the late Neo-Nazi commander who killed himself and 4 others in a murder suicide, one a infant! Anyone but me remember the mysterious caller he had who claimed to be a criminal gun runner? Did he report the fellow to law enforcement or was this one of his shills he uses quite often to bolster his show with controversy?

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

Jon Justice the fellow who migrated to Tucson after leaving Michigan over a drowned dog hoax scandal which cost him a job there! I guess some see his comments humor, some see them racist and others are neutral! I guess it depends on how one sees the world, how one sees other people "not like themselves"! Racism is not a color, race, culture, social economic status, religion but a mental attitude of "my kind is better than yours"! Using that gauge a racist makes themselves what they are by what they say and write!

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

This particular source of racism in Tucson is supported by advertising dollars paid to the Journal Broadcast Group. If enough Tucsonans insist on supporting businesses that advertise elsewhere, it will come to an end.
