Re: “RIP, Author and Activist Kathryn Ferguson

Sad, sad news. I met Kathryn Ferguson for the first time at the Tucson Herpetological Society booth at the Tucson Festival of Books last month. She autographed a copy of The Haunting of the Mexican Border for me. This is a major loss for everyone who loves La Frontera.

Re: “RIP, Author and Activist Kathryn Ferguson

Wow Mr. Again, you've proved to Kathryn who the boss is. You really know how to show love and respect to people who have recently passed away. The members of your church would be so proud of your Christian actions. I wish that I was a more respectful and religious man such as you are.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

What a beautifully rendered piece. Another unsung hero who clearly deserves a spotlight after many years of hard times and hard work. Thank you for the kind gentleness and thoughtful reflection you put in each and every piece, Brian Smith. Your work is amazing.
As for the wayward negative comment above, it's clear that someone only reads the opening few sentences and looks briefly at the pictures. To you sir I would say, take the time to read the whole article before commenting. You'll see that the one you're lecturing on laziness in journalism is actually doing an excellent job.
Keep going, Brian! I can't wait to see what you come up with next week.

Re: “Win Yourself Some Tickets to Friday's UA Basketball Game

Watching a live basketball tournament will bring good entertainment and excitement for us. It will definitely boost our skills for learning basketball techniques and as a basketball fan, I would like to learn some effective basketball techniques from these kinds of live basketball tournaments. Thanks for such a wonderful information and we hope to get some tickets for live basketball tournaments.

"Dance Music Radio...13 K-Hit!"

That break-bumper is still stuck in my head, although it's been over 35 years since I've heard it.

Miracle of 19
Thanx to Edip

Re: “Historic House

Too many signs regarding code 19:
Code 19 was hidden in chapter 74 for 1974 lunar years and it was discovered in 1974.
The gematrical value of the 19 Arabic letters of the first statement of Chapter 74
O hidden one come out and warn
is exactly 1974.
All the derivatives of the root RShD,
the name of the scientist who discovered code 19
is mentioned in the Numerically Coded Book Kitabun Marqum exactly 19 times.

And here are more:
Tucsons zip code number: 57
Masjid Tucsons zone number: 19
Masjid Tucsons land parcel number: 114
The year Masjid Tucson was constructed: 1919.
The only highway in the USA with the metric system connecting Tucson to Nogales: Highway 19

Do you have a turd in your pocket or do you have dissociative identity disorder?

Re: “Editor’s Note

Wrong, Again:

You're the fool. You've proven it time and time again.

And you're wrong, as usual. I have no beef with CW, in fact, I think he makes some good points on certain issues. He also has a personality outside of being a conservative blowhard, something you could never manage.

As for thinking I'm posting as several different people that like to gang up on CW...you need to realise that most people who post here, unlike yourself, have a life outside of this space. I don't have the time, energy or interest to use 10 different names to gang up on anyone...even your sorry ass.

I've tolerated your accusations against me ganging up on you by using different usernames, because you're a simpleton who wouldn't understand the truth if it fell on you from 20,000 feet. But I will not tolerate it if you decide to include another party in your maliciousness towards me. That's just the lowest of the low, even for a slimy basement dwelling troll such as yourself.

If you were aiming for an all-time low by posting these rants, you did well. The beauty of it is that everyone, including CW, can see through your feeble attempts.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

He's not wearing a band-aid across his nose, he's wearing a Breathe Right strip which looks nothing like a band aid. It's used for people with allergy, sinus or breathing problems. If you plan to use it in the story but you don't know what it is, ask. To do otherwise is just lazy journalism.

Re: “Editor’s Note

Excellent retort Mr. 13, Sir, most cunning and inspiring, especially with your strategically placed double question mark. Mr. Wink is definitely down for the count in the Arena of Ideas and you may now proudly take your leave.

Obviously you're not from Brooklyn. Good thing. You'd be eaten up and spit out in a New York minute. Let me ask you something before I take my leave, did your mother have any kids that lived??

Re: “Dunbar Was Just The First of Many for this Local Author

I enjoyed Aloma's book. Im so glad she took time to tell some of the Dunbar story, my story, in part, having grown up a Hail Mary Pass distance from the campus, a beloved learning place for me. Be the best was our motto and Ive sure tried to be the best me I could be in my 78 years of life. It was a school where if you had something to offer you were free to do so and I did. And Im still showing off: acting, writing, playing a ton of sports, creating exciting schools for children, a social activist at my core Hail to Dunbar Junior High!
