Re: “Tacos Apson: Offally Good

Congrats to Heather Hoch, no big words and you didn't have to talk about adding more acid to the salsa.

Re: “Zona Politics: City Budget, County Bonds, Gay Marriage at the Supreme Court & More

Right and if you are happy thats all that matters! Im gonna marry my horse, cuz that makes me happy and hey i'm not bothering anyone right? Moron. YOUR religious beliefs are what helps shape your moral beliefs.. if you have NO morals.. then its OK. Didya even read the bible?? How about watching a movie? The one where Soddom and Gomorra gets Nuked by God?

Re: “Tacos Apson: Offally Good

Being fairly new residents of Tucson we found this place three years ago...2-3 times a week, we are regular customers. The owner & his staff are all good men & are more like family to us. We love the food of course, but really, the owner or anyone of his guys are literally the best, too, in Tucson. Great review! So glad your command of the language is better than mine! Costillas are my drug of choice, too.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

Thank you for the information on Flake. I was hoping there was one honest Republican. I don't think I like any now. I also have been watching the the way Kyrsten Sinema votes(she's a Dem supposedly). I don't know how I saw her but she voted for the predatory lending bill on mobile homes(14%-15% interest) and one other terrible bill. She is Tempe"s elect but I am putting it out there. She's not a Democrat. Her staff sent me a note saying that she is committed to having everyone owning their own home at a price they can afford(apparently that's a mobile home). I said the interest rates were predatory and that was the same rationale used when people were put in homes that had outrageous interest rates which was one of the biggest reasons we had the housing market tank. Her staff didn't respond to that. I just looked again and she votes with Republicans often. Pass the word. She needs to go.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

Bisbee is definitely worth visiting! You can't compare Tucson to Bisbee. Tucson is a big, noisy, traffic-y freeway-of-a-city. Tucson is a place you want to drive TO for a show or to shop, then leave. Vacation there? Why would you? It's hotter than hell there in the summer; people in Tucson go to Bisbee to "get away from it all" and to get to a better climate. In Bisbee, we like Thuy's Vietnamese Pho when we're in town, staying at the Toland Adobe, a Bisbee vacation rental (which we own). We prefer vacation rentals (and have stayed at a couple of other nice VRs in Bisbee-- there are quite a few) over hotels. Some of them, like ours, have private yards, which is much nicer than being stuck inside (particularly if you are bringing kids or a dog or two but also if you want to chill out on a patio after a long day on your feet). You can also share the cost of a vacation rental as easily as a hotel room. I agree with other posters that one day in Bisbee isn't enough. I always recommend that people get off of Main Street/Tombstone Canyon and wander around in the neighborhoods up the mountain. Take a drive over to the Warren and Lowell sections, too.

Re: “ConDanza with ZUZI!

Last night's opening show was outstanding. We felt we were not in Tucson but instead in a major city watching a professional company. Although we enjoyed both companies, I will have to point out ConDanza as one company to keep an eye on. It is obvious that set pieces and big costumes are not necessary to draw audience. Their esthetics and movement quality will stand alone in moving you as an audience. A must see.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

If Carl Levin is so eager to take land and sell it to the mining companies, he won't mind selling his precious Great Lakes for a profit. After all, it's only water! Let's ask him and see what he has to say.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

As a former resident of Bisbee here's my two cents: Santiagos is infinitely miss-able. Over-priced, poor service and a real disappointment for anyone with a shred of taste for the good, authentic Mexican so ubiquitous in Tucson. It's not even the best Mexican in Bisbee (try Neariah's near Safeway, but make sure you're not in a hurry). Santiago's a safe, glossy tourist joint serving bland Californian versions of proper Mexican dishes. If a meatball sub is really what you're craving (it could happen) Jimmy's Hot Dogs is the real deal if you want a gut bomb. Cafe Roka is, again, the best Bisbee has to offer in its category because it is utterly uncontested, which shows. The wine list is great, but if you've eaten there once consider your Roka experience complete because the menu never changes with any appreciable boldness. Same appetizers, same side veg, same entrees with the same sauce for years. Save your money and splurge on a good bottle of wine at the High Desert Cafe. Old Bisbee Brewing is fine but a year or so back they decided to make fewer varieties of beer (sadly discontinuing a lovely wheat beer) to sell more volume of a few popular beers. Again, if you live there the same Copper Ale coming out of this magnificent facility gets monotonous, especially when Tucson is spoiled with so many creative brewers. Thankfully, breakfast is what Bisbee does well and all of the places mentioned are decent. But then, let's be honest, this is the real problem. In Bisbee, you're choices are limited to decent options that, in Tucson, would barely be worth a mention, which begs the question, aside from the quirk and 15 degree temperature shift, is Bisbee really worth visiting?

Re: “Zona Politics: City Budget, County Bonds, Gay Marriage at the Supreme Court & More

The least we can do in this life is to let people be happy. Their happinsess does not affect anyone's elses.
Keep your religious beliefs where they belong, inside yourself.

These are REAL tacos! Food is incredible and nothing like those "amateur taco lovers" who go to BK or Güero.

Re: “Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby Shows Respect for City's Youth

That's very true. However cops shouldn't have to stand there and get pelted with rocks, bottles,etc. just because the idiot mayor told them to stand down. This woman is worse than Rothchild and that's saying something.

That's very true, but on the other hand they shouldn't have to stand there and get pelted with rocks,bottles, etc. because the idiot mayor told them to stand down. This woman is such a jerk, she makes Rothchild look good. And that's saying something.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

McCain, Gosar, Flake, and Ann Kirkpatrick work for overseas corporations such as Rio Tinto, not for Arizona!

These henchmen for the mining company want the public to give up a federally-protected National Forest site so that a foreign company can reap the wealth of America's minerals. Please see this short video for a look at the landscape that McCain and company want to destroy:

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

Thanks Tim and Weekly for covering this travesty. I have been working on the facts and figures of water, loss of trees and a great place to hang out with nature for years. My latest report to Congress. (did any of them read it?) www.mining-law-reform.info/Southeast-Arizona-Land-Exchange.htm We have to mention Kirkpatrick (D) and Gosar also in the travesty. The Bill had been debated in the Senate 4 or 5 times since 2005 and had gone out of committee even once!
As far as the AZ Democrats, we had Richard Carmona, the best candidate ever, running against the "Flake" but Flake campaign swift-boated Carmona for a win. Voters don't look into experience, but who has the most hype.

Guardians, Flake is as corrupted as they come. He is also a politician to vote out of office. Read this: http://ricardosmall.smugmug.com/PROTEST/Oa…

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

I am a Democrat and I like Jeff Flake. I don't always agree with his votes but I think he is honest and tries very hard. Now lets get some Dems in that have that much integrity and we have super winners. I wrote Jeff a couple of times and I really liked his answers... didn't agree with all of what he said but I believe he believes in what he stands for. At one time I thought this about McCain ... didn't always agree but a man who believed what he said. Now I think he is corrupted.... big time.
