Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 123: "Changing the Trend Line" Edition

OK, let’s make this easy…
All liars are not politicians, but all politicians are liars.
Ducey is a politician, therefore he is a liar.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

In January 2016, I started having pains in my abdomen I just assumed it was nerves left over. I saw my doctor and finally h suggested I get a c-scan. I did that and they thought it was a cyst on my ovary. I set up an appointment with a surgeon and made a date for me to get it taken care off. My A125 was at 350 at that point. The surgeon told me I had stage 4 ovarian cancer and I less than a year to live if I did nothing. As I lay in my hospital bed thinking about being dead in some months, my mind went blank. It took me three days to accept the facts and three seconds to know I could do nothing about it but God could. My family doctor called me and reveal a secret about using cannabis oil alternative and that i could live again with cannabis oil medication for treatment and that moment my heart lifted for joy. I went ahead to do research on the cannabis oil and I found a lot of hopeful information and how many patients have cured various kinds of cancer with cannabis oil. I wrote to Cancer Centre London through email and I was provided information on how to get the cannabis oil for treatment. I got the cannabis oil and I started taking it as directed. Now my ovarian cancer has been cured and I am a member for support cannabis campaign.

Re: “Cinema Clips: Eight Days a Week

A good review of their meteoric rise and touring life. And a touch of their studio-musician careers. But the genius part of the film is showing their very last public performance together on top of the building housing their recording studio. Their performance is unbelievably good and a testament to how skilled and talented they had become. And, back to the film, don't miss the footage of their Met Stadium performance--it follows all of the film credits as a kind of fun but unnecessary add-on.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

And 'greaser' has not always referred to anyone of a specific ethnic heritage. In S.E. Hintons wonderful 1967 book 'The Outsiders,' the "Greasers' were the group of lower economic class kids who wore grease in their hair, motorcycle jackets, etc. It had less to do with ethnicity/race and more to do with a class of people or subculture. Of course S.E. Hinton is referencing the greaser sub culture that existed across American throughout the 40's, 50's, 60's and also had nothing to do with race, it was a sub culture that revolved around music, cars and a rejection of their parents culture, no different than later youth movements like the hippies, the punks, etc.

Words are powerful things and it always amazes me that two people can use the same word and interpret it in very different ways. Instead of assuming the context, just ask about it and seek understanding. We can live in a better world!

Re: “Media Watch

I wonder where you'll end up? Could it be the hokey web site you spent the whole column plugging? As always, fantastic journalistic integrity, bub.

Re: “Local Transition

There's really nothing on 4th worth visiting twice. No stellar eateries, that's for sure. Look. Tucson, as a whole, is sort of a dump.

Re: “Tucson Is A Vacuum—And I'm Ok With That

Sunrises and sunsets. The Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum and the old Old Tucson, before the fire. Davis Monthan and the Bone Yard. A-10s and F-16s – the sound of freedom. Coyotes howling inside the city limits and javalina nibbling on my front “yard” plants. Families of quail running on the ground and Harris hawks soaring in the sky above. Monsoon rains and the Stupid Motorist Law. The old TCC, when the water features worked, and Cholla High School, when it was new, before they had to put up all the fencing that makes it look like a minimum security prison today. Tucson has always been a city of contrast with various cultures and civilizations fighting with each other and with nature, even as the people do the same. I have heard it said that although the secret to success may be elusive, the secret to failure is trying to make everyone happy. Tucson will never make everyone happy and perhaps that will be the secret to its success.

Re: “Song of the Day: 'Tucson Kills'

Fuck You star command
you don't have a clue
you showed up out of the Blue
your here because you don't know what to do
you can judge and know whats wrong
you can never say it in a song
you can only point and say
I know a better way
but all you do is sit and judge
All those who've lived who hold no grudge

Re: “Police Dispatch

I used that "Do you want to......" line a few times at he old Maverick and the Bum Steer back in the '70's, (when Tucson was really a fun town) It worked a couple of times with really not that many tries. Tucson is still a fun town sometimes.
