Seems like legalization would get both Republican and Democrat support. Republicans can cash in on the growth ( I'm sure the cigarette companies are raring to go) and the Democrats would enjoy the product. Then we could drop the medicinal fig leaf.
We all know legalize is Best
Thank you for your writings.
Fourteen years after it's initial publication, this story is STILL right on the mark, Tom.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving, but while on the way to or from wherever your holiday is celebrated, PULL YOUR HEAD OUT and pay attention to the roadway and everyone else using it.
I'm a little confused. This story has Tom Prezelski's name at the top and Tom Danehy's byline. So who wrote it and if it was Tom P, why not just give him the byline.
As to the content, I'm disappointed that little effort seems to have been expended in trying to discover why Barber has cast the votes that have served little positive purpose, unless of course in giving him bipartisan credibility for his ongoing effort to work with the House majority. On the issue of progressive candidacies, should we not remember that old CD8 was and current CD2 is moderate to conservative territory in which moderate [by today's standards] Republican Jim Kolbe won handily for 22 years and moderate Democrat Gabrielle Giffords won three times and has been succeeded by another moderate Democrat. As I've been telling friends for years, Raul Grijalva couldn't win this district.
I'm not sure how Jeff Latas got dragged into this essay, but in 2006 he was a non-factor and a bore as a candidate, with his impenetrable power point presentation and total lack of charisma. Latas hope Jeff will not again attempt to run.
All in all, sort of strange little essay.
stop the lies,,,legalize !!!
Thanks to Irene Messina and Tucson Weekly for having the only factual/objective article among Tucson media this week about Derek Humphry, Final Exit Network and physician aid-in-dying.
Laughter through our tears.
Nice take-down. Thank you Mr. Danehey!
A new low for Pulitzer Tommy in the ho-hum,who really cares about this mindless blather department. I can't believe you actually got 2 other chumps other than me to respond. I'd love to see what would happen if you were put in a position where you had to go out and get a real job.
P.S. Signed up yet, Tommy ?
Susan: As you might imagine (and I've told you in at least one other environment) that I can't legally discuss personnel issues with people other than those directly involved. However, you're welcome to discuss the issue with Mr. Vanderpool (you're connected to him in some way, yes?) himself.
Thanks for your concern, however. Investigative reporting is incredibly important to me and will remain a part of our mission, as it always has.
Yes Dan, the weekly has changed!!! Gone is Tim Vanderpool!!!I personally would like to know why. While I can respect that you, as the man at the helm, can make any changes you would like, the last thing that interests me is your cover or the movie section. The most important issues are those that are at hand in our community and Tim was one of your best writers. So, enlighten us Dan, why is he no longer among your flock?
I hope you will find the time to reply to this post. I know about 30 people off-hand that would love to know the answer. And while that might seem like small potato's to you, Tucson really is a tight community.
Hopefully it will not seem like a minor detail to you. Investigative reporting is important to us as a community. I often relied on your paper to accomplish this. Now I am dismayed by your ethics and integrity. I have no other understanding of Tim's disappearance, other than, his articles are gone. It is disturbing to me as a reader. While I know many times you have pontificated, about how many readers follow the weekly, I feel it is important to offer an explanation to all of your readers. I'm not sure which readers are the important ones' in your eyes, but hopefully I will be one of them and you perhaps will resolve this issue and bring back Tim and his articles!!!!!(and explain) He is sorely missed!
I liked you a lot better when you sniveled at the onset, carped thru the meat of your article and finished up with couple of whines, Ha! My worst experience was on Houghton road, when a car passenger squirted at me with a water pistol loaded with urine........... takes all kinds!!
Oh for God's sake, all you naysayers, give the guy a break. I think the Weekly's looking fine, Dan. And you're still scooping me on some stories, so in my eyes you're doing great :-)
We love you Dan, think you have done and are doing a bang up job. The fact that you do get yourself in trouble and on Romenesko is what is so endearing about you.
M Duer: funniest comment ever!!!
Agreed, ronko--thanks for the comment. Many of the side streets that are "safer" to ride on (because there's less traffic, moving relatively slowly) are not just annoying but dangerous, thanks to cracks and holes and bumps in the pavement that can literally throw a bicyclist to the ground.
I'm just glad the movie times have been restored to their rightful place. What with the internet, regular phone, and giant marquees I could never figure out which "lowest-common-denominator Hollywood flick" I would be able to squeeze in between community service and the methadone clinic. Keep up the good work, Dan, and don't let the bastards get you down!
Good job Dan!
PVK/Scarpia, B: You might need to work on your reading skills. "Honestly, I thought the paper would have changed more in my first year..."; "There's a lot more to come, even still ahead of us in 2013."
But yes, Jimmy was a great editor for the Weekly. I couldn't agree more.
Happy Anniversary from one crazy person to another!
Well done Dan and the Weekly team! Excited to see what's ahead!!
I like using the older PROVEN system from the Territorial days. You know, the system used back before computers, high tech tweeting, and tour buses. Play against your neighbors, those who come out on top THEN get to play the better teams from the rest of the state.
Alternatively, just dump out the Valley area schools, and let the state of Arizona have it's own champions. Maybe schedule a final round of teams from Arizona vs those in the great state of Maricopa.
