Re: “Ask A Mexican!

Tamales? Those were invented for people that ran out of tortillas. Make mine tacos. Italians have done the same thing with pizzas.

No vision.

Re: “Danehy

Zamperini wrote an earlier book called "Devil at My Heels" back in the 50s that told the same story in a far less literary manner. The final chapters were mostly biblical quotations. His story is truly amazing, a bad kid who turned into a success, went through hell and worked his way out of bitterness and anger. We had a neighbor here in Bisbee with a similar story. Dick Cooksley, who died a couple of months ago at age 93, survived the Bataan Death March and 3 1/2 years as a POW of the Japanese in the same hellish conditions as Zamperini. Dick was the nicest, most mellow person you could imagine. He worked with Boy Scouts after he retired from the Army. The point is, I suppose, that one CAN live through hell and return to a life of enjoyment, serenity and calm. Louie Zamperini was a mensch, as was Dick Cooksley

Re: “Planning Progress

Tucson limits the size of cultivation sites and Phoenix doesn't? What's wrong with this picture? We need larger cultivation sites in Tucson to lower prices for Tucson patients and to provide jobs to Tucson citizens.

Re: “Danehy

...and then we could look at results. Oh look, there really aren't any. Accept population out of control with open borders and environmental degradation.

Excuse me but we have a water shortage.

Re: “Danehy

Soccer (fútbol) is EVERYTHING to nearly every other country in the world, because they never had much else happening in the way of sports. They all started out by kicking rocks!

However, there's this good news: USA women have won TWO World Cups!

Re: “Mail Bag

"The bills I voted for would ensure fairness and equality under the law."

That's laughable Ron. The law was designed to confiscate earnings from the successful.

Fairness and equality? What a joke!

Re: “Danehy

All this infantile drivel that the Democrats are by nature willing to lie and cheat to win an election conveniently ignores all of the AZ republicans who pushed the plan for Republicans to quietly take over the AZ Green Party and pretend to be progressive so they could attract enough liberals away from mainstream Democrats to help Republican candidates. Politics are filthy, and to try to say, "Oh well the Liberals do such and so..." as though a Republican party that is simply bereft of ideas and which tries to win elections exclusively by saying, "Don't do what the Democrat wants" bore no guilt in the matter.

Re: “Editor's Note

It wouldn't be the first hack establishment to throw up a beta website to let the users hash out all the bugs. At a higher cost to the consumer.

Re: “Danehy

What's interesting is that the Barber campaign folks are quietly conceding the race to McSally. Democrats are turning on him in droves. they estimate a loss by more than 10,000 votes. This will be interesting.

First he lost the Jewish vote and now the Democrats. If the I's go McSally this could be a landslide for her.

Re: “Danehy

Not to mention the G.O.P. putting up presidental candidates like McCain and Romney. No wonder Obummer got elected twice. Hopefully they'll get their heads out of their asses in 2014 and not decide to run Christie or Jeb Bush.

Re: “Danehy

Exactly Fraser. 25 years of Kolbe/McCain added to Grijalva and Pastor have given us NOTHING to be proud of.
