Dan, got no problem with left of center, that's really not a bad place to be. Do think, though, that to really do discussion, and information dissemination justice, one must be exposed to all arguments in order to train one's mind to filter reality without pre-conceptions. Our life experiences and associations color our views and if they're only from one perspective we suffer by lack of what could have been. Regards, - Mammey
Democracy doesn't work? How do you know Dan? Where have you seen it?
Interesting...so this is no doubt one of the reasons that the United States Government will not secure the border...it may upset the government of Mexico if we secured the borders so their citizens couldn't come here and send money back to Mexico. Some of that money they send back, isn't even their money to send back...stealing from Americans. How do I know you may ask...several years ago our card number was stolen and some criminal tried to wire money out of our account...to guess where...MEXICO!
I'm surprised that you would run a perfectly legible and intelligible piece with the heading "we don't know what this is about but we are running it anyway"--it just seems so disrespectful! I thought that letters to the editor were OUR chance, as readers, to express ourselves and to opine, not yours. You have the whole newspaper to get your point of view across. If you are going to be so frankly rude about someone's letter, simply don't print it. But printing it and then ridiculing the person who wrote it (especially when its not rocket science to figure out what its about-) seems really unnecessary. All of that aside, I take it as a perfectly reasonable story about someone crashing back to Earth, with all of the human idiots contained thereon, after happily composing "lets make it better" letters in her head. Full disclosure: I know this woman, brilliant, creative and open-minded, and I am a dog owner who likes her dogs off leash. So I think I truly DO know what this letter is about. Notwithstanding, I make it a point to be respectful of others' preferences when it comes to my dogs. AND I agree that when it comes to the meek inheriting the earth, I won't be in that number. An apology from you would be nice, but some interest and a desire to understand what is written would be even nicer.
Yes Bob: Not true. Weekly Wide Web wasn't ready in time for print this week, so its space (next to Police Dispatch) was filled with an ad. Good to know you're reading it though.
Please correct me if I'm wrong but it appears that you bumped the World Wide Web, The Range Roundup and the Comment of the Week to make more space to slobber all over Steve?
Yes, Yes!!!! Have to admit that it's nice to see someone finally admitting to the FACT that BILLIONS of American dollars got shipped out of country, and not used to bolster the local economies that they were earned in!!!
Imagine if Jackie Robinson was gay! His story would have been completely different. Many straight football players will resent the presence of a gay man in the locker room. They resent female sports reporters access to locker rooms, too. But they are also pragmatic. There's more to life than a person's sexual preference. Players of all stripes will overlook any behavior outside the game if a player helps put wins on the board. Gay players are going to have to leave their preference outside the locker room in the interest of getting along with their teammates. If they don't, their cause for equal rights will continue to be set back by players who resent their locker room being sexualized to make a point that has nothing to do with the sport. Calling someone a gay football player is like calling someone a lesbian economist. The two terms have nothing to do with each other. They can be two seperate aspects of the same human being in the same way that being a married or single football player has no bearing on how he plays football.
The cost has always been the elephant in the room. Even $10/gram is a lot to pay, more than many could afford very often or at all. Anyone who's had the pleasure of growing their own outdoors for the small cost of watering and soil prep, would smile, possibly laugh, or maybe get angry. Alas, that simple freedom to garden is not recognized by Arizona legislators or the law as it stands. Growing legally is costly, confined and distant. Growing illegally in your yard is very inexpensive, but risky and subject to severe penalty. You'd think the stuff was radioactive.
I just picked up an issue of AZWeekly. I'm not sure what it going on in there. You have to sift through poor graphics and busy pages to find any content. In fact, I don't think I found any content. It is in the recycling bin. I won't be picking up another. At least there are articles to read int the Tucson Weekly. Award-winning ones at that.

Another token just trotted out...and sounded off like Glenn Beck after a few shots of Tequila. Obama phones? They get to go without AZDLs and insurance while I have to have them? The police can do nothing?
When you sober up, do some research.
Not sure why I need to say this, but I am an old white woman who reads your column faithfully. I learn something every column & just wanted to thank you for writing it.
Sounds like Wisconsin experience says that vouchers work. One of the key reasons to do them is to spur the public schools to do a better job. Once they know that the parents have an alternative , they quit their whinning about keeping their monopoly status, and figure out a way to make a diploma worth something. It seems to make sense for Governor Walker to expand them if he believes that schools exist to educate children and not simply to make sure teacher's unions have an ample source of dues.
Does Arizona have philanthropists supplementing charter school budgets? Do the charter schools get exempt from pension obligations for teachers so teachers will change careers rather than dedicate themselves? In NYC many charters are not charting anything that the DOE could afford to replicate. It's a failed experiment in school reform.
What a shame that you went from veganism back to eating animal products.
I'd like to try the cannabis oil using olive oil or coconut oil. It sounds very delicious.
Here's something the cuts are guaranteed to do: those on unemployment extensions will in April, be looking at their generous $240 a week being cut by as much as 22%. Just one thing the willfully uninformed don't know, because they're focused on the politics.
When is the huge, world-destroying meteor? I can't wait. The only difference between Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" and now, is that the black president is actually smart.
And I'm going to cut this flame war off before it gets going any further. Goodnight, everybody!
Heroes don't exist in a city without villains.
The urban myth-making in the original letter and the above comments never rises above your garden variety faceless internet slander. As such they do not warrant response, but it should be pointed out that these allegations were all sourced from friends of friends of friends and, even better, "police". I think that about says it all.
