Having been tombstoned twice at the AZ Star -- the last time permanently when I called Antenori a neanderthal (They seemed REALLY afraid of Frank when he was accidentally in the Leg - and I apologized to Neanderthals everywhere) and since I boycott Facebook as an intrusive, untrustworthy waste of my time, this is no change as far as I'm concerned...
Horrible idea for a horrible product. Long live Dr. Pepper!
I did miss it, so thanks for making sure I didn't! Fantastic!
Why would anybody put their privacy at risk by having a FB acct in their real name?
sign into facebook. become a preschooler again. whine that you want friends. does the star realize that facebook slugs do not buy newspapers? get a coupon, like us on facebook. get a life, i'll shop elsewhere. FB, the center of the idiot generation, where you get a badge for being a putz.
It's nothing more than a money-saving move on the Star's part, although it probably won't save near enough to keep that paper going much longer.
Only Hispanics with an ESL background need apply...
The ranters and ravers from both the left and the right are on Facebook also. Some of the names and faces will change, but much of the rhetoric will remain the same.
The only potential positive I see is that there is a much stronger libertarian presence on Facebook, which actually may get some people to think, rather than just knee-jerk react as their handlers tell them.
Sure makes it easier for the NSA when everything on the internet goes into the Facebook database instead of being spread out through millions of independent comment sites.
I'm glad to see that right wing nuttiness will not dominate the comments section of the ADS anymore. I would occasionally wade into the muck over there, but it almost made me think that Bill, and Roy, and Elroy, and George and their nasty comments were a majority opinion.
Another funny thing, is these guys would often reveal that they live in Marana. They would point out how superior Marana is to Tucson. Really? Can Ina and Thornydale even hold a candle to downtown Tucson? Ha! LOL!
BTW, thanks for putting "Obama as Hitler" avatar" in quotes. Guess you guys read your Facebook comments.
Saw it. Terrific! My kids loved that book. I've read it hundreds of times. In the Night Kitchen was depicted there too.
Thanks for the clandestine answer. DC
Didn't miss it. Enjoyed it all day! My boy and I both love "Where the Wild Things Are" in both incarnations; book and film. Multi-generational entertainment!
Do tell, George W. If you can tell me one thing, other than provide a depressing look into the human psyche, that the Star's comment section does better than our paper, I'd love to read it.
I've now read your paper and looked at your classifieds. I'm not sure you ought to be making fun of anybody
Robert, I've heard this accusation flung out a number of times, but a past use of the race card by one party doesn't necessarily make it okay for the other party to try whipping it back out.
Personally, I think crying "racism!" is often a poor accusation, designed to deflect blame away from the initial argument, no matter which side is using it.
Why isn't President Obama doing something about all those children still held in jail in OUR country because of this immigration mess? I heard his wife the other day in her speech (she was rudely interrupted by a woman hollering something) but I remembering her saying " this was all about the children!!" And I think Mrs. Obama is RIGHT!! It is about the kids, and YOUR article is right on. Here are all these little children in our prisons languishing for God knows how long, and our government hasn't done anything about it. At least we can do is get them out and put them in foster homes, or orphanages, or...something. Anything is better than sleeping on those hard racks.
I haven't seen or read anything that mentions Daniel Day Lewis being in this. Is there something that's being presented here that's going right over my head? Please enlighten me. Thanks, DC
