Did Chuck Norris get right wing Christian conservative before or after he cheated on his wife and left her for the mistress!:-)

Typical liberal thinking morality is immoral. And decadence is morality!

I so support her choice to move back to San Francisco. Tuczon is nice but hot and too conservative still. San Francisco has a much wider and diverse culture.

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

I remember our yearbook at Catalina High School interviewed her for the 1978 edition, I really liked the lady's perspective then and I like it now. I wish I could remember one of her quotes properly, paraphrasing; "I didn't drop out honey, they just wouldn't give me a diploma" Obviously raising her children as best as she can is important to the woman and I certainly don't see anything wrong with that. Don't like the scenery? Change it. My perspective about Linda Ronstadt is that she has given the world far more than she's taken and not everybody can say that.

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

The comment above about people in San Francisco "hating the rich" is one of the most ignorant statements ever uttered by anyone, anywhere. Anyone who has been paying any attention at all knows YOU HAVE TO BE RICH YOURSELF to live in San Francisco. Duh. Average cost of a home in San Francisco.....1 million dollars. I'm sure San Francisco's masses of poor people will be protesting her arrival. Oh wait. They won't. Because they don't exist.

/It's sad when people can look at a situation where so many are hurting and the take-away they get from it is "Hur-durr. look at them..."

It's was a joke...but sadly it was fact based. And that's pretty sad.

Re: “City to Address Streetcar Gridlock & Rider Delays Following 2nd Saturday Troubles

The solution is simple: CLOSE CONGRESS STREET TO AUTOMOBILES ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT.

I've been suggesting this for years. The intersection is a death trap. Do we have to wait for someone to get killed before we can make a common sense decision here????

There is no reason for anyone to go zipping down Congress at peak times on the weekend nights. That area is a destination at that time, and trying to preserve it as a cut-through-downtown artery is just plain foolish, not to mention dangerous. It's simply too congested. Adding a pack of idling cars to the mix makes the whole scene very unpleasant.

C'mon folks. Is it that hard to cede ONE LITTLE SPACE to pedestrians??? Close Congress between Toole and Stone on Friday and Saturday nights. Do it before someone gets killed.

Andreas Hohl: Comparing this to Chicago or New York's L/Subway system isn't an apples to apples comparison because they don't run the train on the actual street taking up a lane of traffic.

"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.

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

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.
