Re: “Danehy

I just heard that Flagstaf got a half foot of snow today. Now, that's warming.

Re: “Danehy

The temperatures were "guessed at?"

None of this has ever been about science. Those of us with high reality IQs and accurate BS sensors knew it all along.

Re: “Danehy

Not sure how I stumbled on to this tucson weekly rag but holy crap is this Tom Danehy a first class douche bag! He epitomizes everything that's wrong with giving the public at large a soap box on which to spew their hate. Tom - most of us on the Right, Conservatives, are great people serving our communities, raising families and have philosophies that we logically and factually believe will help us and our country and that's why some of us run for the positions in government (legislature, not "legislatur" as you call it in the title of the post). You on the other hand are a miserable little man with nothing to offer but hateful bile.

Re: “Danehy

Why would anyone want to be a member of a party with REAL foundations in racism, slavery, the klan, all of which are products of the left, democrats and liberalism. That isn't wild hyperbole like the title of the article - it's FACT.

Re: “Danehy

The stupid people don't really understand how dumb they are, and they don't care. To them, life is just something to be endured, until they die and Jeebus welcomes them into his heavenly realm (or as most intelligent folks would describe it -- an unendurably dull eternity.) The challenge for the rest of us is to tolerate them kindly, while working diligently to prevent them from taking over our government. To a great extent, we have already failed. (Being intelligent evidently doesn't guarantee a sense of responsibility.) Meanwhile, the addle-brained among us manage to swarm to the polls en masse. Hence the conundrum. Smart people need to get it together, lest our democracy be doomed.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. Danehy ? The man with the cajones to say Ted Cruz is Spanish for Joe McCarthy? ( A little racsim there ? ) How about Tom Danehy, English for dead from the neck up stooge who's only shot at a paycheck is writing some useless column for a bunch of Lefties in a paper that sucks so bad they can't even charge for it?

Re: “Danehy

A triple digit IQ could be 100 or anything above 100. An IQ score of 100 means at the median. The median in statistics is the number that separates the lower half of the population from the upper half. Mr. Danehy's remark about IQ was simply referring to the half of the population with IQ's of 100 or greater..

Re: “Danehy

I can't believe the triple digit IQ remark.
"Pride" can be an ugly thing.
What is a "real" scientist by the way?
A scientist who's grant money depends on toeing the party line I suppose.
They must buy into the U.N. propaganda or risk more ridicule.
Ted Cruz has a Harvard degree by the way. That doesn't impress me, but you always liked to point
that out when praising Barry O and citing his resume.

Re: “Danehy

I find the people that are the most intelligent #1 do not know their IQ, or care to mention it to others, and #2 they wait for peer review on serious matters do wait out the hysteria.

"All of the researchers who spoke to Quartz about the two studies agreed that the warming pause was just that.

“Eventually we expect temperatures to ‘catch up,’ but it may take longer than five years for that to happen,” Roberts told Quartz.

So Al Gore was just a little bit early? Is that the new "smart thinking?"

Re: “Danehy

"nine of the 10 hottest years on record have occurred since 2000." That kind of phrase is very unscientific. Please, tell us how long we actually have the 'record' you cite? This whole diatribe from the premier Tucson diatribist is probably referring to those of us who claim (1) that climate change today is not scientifically proven to be human-caused and (2) that nonetheless many of the actions advocated to slow human-caused climate change are easily propounded as good for humanity without throwing in that speculative argument. We do NOT deny climate change, we acknowledge instead that climate change is a natural occurence with which we must cope to the best of our abilities, by conserving and developing new sources of water, by working on all forms of energy sources, by working to reduce air pollution and so forth. Why clutter up the need for these tasks by asserting we have to believe we are somehow affecting the natural climate change of this planet?

Re: “Danehy

Does the percentage of adults that won't read a book include everyone in prisons? at least there is one section of society that will finally see the value of the written word.

Nice writing Mr. Danehy. The willful ignorance of today's Republican party is sad.

Re: “Danehy

So "those of us with triple digit IQ 's believe that a mindset is unforgivable?"

Great to know. Expect that to cut both ways.

Re: “No Justice

Totally agree with John Henry! God Bless you. No one knows if Ms. Marissa was trying to escape from something earlier. Ever wonder if she was fleeing for her life from something (maybe she tried to stay the night somewhere to avoid a tragedy of what was expected as an innocent night of (we all looked forward to our 21st birthday)! I may not know any of you involved in this, but No one knows the real story, I believe there are two sides to every story. I was curious if there was more to this story so to find out I looked it up on court and news, the police car was built faulty and the female involved helped the case so the Cruz family could win a settlement from the manufacturer of the vehicle (which determines this was a tragic accident (that could happen to any one of us). Looks like God was looking out for the Cruz family all along.

Re: “Danehy

A week has come and gone and one whole comment by a guy who just wanted to vent on that fat slob Eckstrom. Speaks volumes about the quality of the columns that appear here. Another classic by our very own Pulitzer Tommy. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.

Re: “Danehy

If "Danny Boy" Eckstrom was anywhere near the auction money, I hope that they count every last cent, to make sure it's still there.

Eckstrom is, by far, the most corrupt elected official (past or present) that this town has ever known. And that's saying a lot.

It's really funny that some people still kiss his behind, even though he hasn't been in elected office, for years. It's been over twenty years since the FBI forced him to resign, when they were ready to charge him for embezzling federal funds. LOL.

Re: “Danehy

I'm totally confused - where was "than" and "then" used incorrectly? I'm just not seeing it...

According to

Then is mainly an adverb, often used to situate actions in time. For example, you wake up in the morning and then have breakfast. It’s also used in if … then constructions such as, “If you wake late, then you might have to skip breakfast.” It also works as a noun meaning that time (e.g., “I wanted breakfast, but then was not a good time”) and as an adjective meaning at that time (e.g., “My then boyfriend was not an early riser”).

Than is a conjunction used mainly in making comparisons—e.g., “My breakfast is better than yours”; “I make breakfast differently than you do.”

That being said - the instances Tom's article where "then" or "than" were used are as follows:

"they smell better than Kim Kardashian" = comparison - correct
"made the mistake of thinking that Harrison Ford was Amish and then assaulted Ford with an ice cream cone" = situate action in time - correct
"but every now and then" = situate action in time - correct
"but then I realized" = situate action in time - correct
"She did a double-take and then asked me" = situate action in time - correct

Seems like it is all proper grammar to me... Just saying...
