Frank Antenori was defeated because of his radical views and bills he passed. So why are you even talking with Frank. Guess your not looking for votes from the people. Frank is an extreme radical and AZ doesn't need anymore. We need law makers who make real laws in AZ. And not laws created by ALEC. Voters get smart of the politicians, The Tea Party and Republicans have nothing new to offer but more extreme messages and bills. They are the real ISIS we in the USA have to fight against.
And no comment about the atrocious behavior of the big league players who have the institutional protections that dismiss, ignore or downplay domestic violence, child abuse , rape and murder. Not all players are like that but there is a thug, gangster, macho, mysoginist mentality that perservers in sports. Has Tom even noticed?
Pro sports are boring. It's all about ridiculous salaries and big profits. Football is too violent. The players are damaged for life, driven by their greed. Perhaps they think they will quit before their brains are scrambled.
It's fine to play sports, other than football...and soccer seems innane to me...but why spend your money on watching sports? Dumb! Spend your time doing something useful.
Baseball, basketball, hockey, football all have to shorten their seasons if they are to survive.
These almost year round seasons are driving people away in droves.
I gave up on pro sports years ago.
You forgot to mention that a certain unnamed person got you interested in the quest of the Stanley Cup.
Poor The Smokey Bear.
Same thing happened to Smokey Bear. His "The" was surgically removed.
Used to be THE Facebook until the Napster dude clued them in.
I don't know where to begin other than to say this is a great example of Tom's general propensity for negativity and overstatement. To say that the school has "never" been mistaken for a religious institution is both an over application of the universal "never" and is simply untrue. I teach at The Gregory School and 90% of the time people ask me if it's Catholic or wonder what it's like to teach at a Christian school. TGS has been secular since 1987 when the school parted ways with the Episcopal church. So if we are hiding from religion as one of the commenters said we are, we have been doing so for 27 years. As for 100% of our community not liking the change or simply not engaging, again Tom has his facts wrong. Of course there will never be 100% agreement but the most progressive alum and students understand this as a necessary, well informed, and deeply considered marketing decision. The name Gregory is well known, well respected, and well loved in the community and we knew we wanted to keep that esteemed association in our name, but, in the competitive educational marketplace in Tucson, we just couldn't afford to have potential families believe us to be anything other than what we are -- THE best academic AND college preparatory high school AND whole child 5-8 middle school in Tucson. So THE Gregory School we have become. Same great teachers, students, coaches, and parents just a slightly, more accurate, name. I know Tom needs to critique or he'd be out of a job, but this time the critique is inaccurate, off-base, and inaccurate.
No "The". Make it just "Gregory School".
Roads in good condition mean less crime? I agree the roads suck, but what exactly does this have to do with the name of a school? Time for your nap, Linda !
My kids go to Jonathans Cork.
Gregory costs 17K per year, not 15K.
Don't know where to comment. Has Tucson done anything lately about the awful condition of the city streets? So many need repaving and there is no money? Don't you know the home values go up when the streets look nice? And there is less crime. Keep it neat, people.
I dunno, Tom. "The School" has sort of a nice ring to it. You might have given them an idea.
Agreed. Not only was a name change not needed the new name is dumb.
Got to agree. Some people will do anything to hide from religion.
Wasn't the original team name the "Redskins?"
This fellows pal Russell Pearce is now doing radio talk jock, right wing hate monger snake oil salesmen duty, has got a entitlement job on side from his pals in GOP controlled state government, these folks talk a good game but are frauds, hypocrites!
What would these out of work right wingers do if they cannot win another entitlement government job and feed off the government cheese? This fellow is a joke!
Black unemployment up under Obama and the rich got richer.
There must be no solution to either scenario.
