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.
Add to your list of fantasies improved pavement. While I agree with your list of big picture plans and ideas for the future of bicycling in Tucson on a more immediate and tangible level the streets/bike lanes, and basic surface of both in this town is bone rattling. Bad pavement can separate the dedicated cyclists from those less rabid. Those less rabid will simply drive or walk.
No Dan, you didn't say that, but you have now I guess, and yes, you have a long way to go just to catch up to Jimmy, let alone improve The Weekly.
Let me guess, the reason the AIA is using a system that actually hurts smaller, more rural teams is because there is money involved. Revenue from more popular teams who actually are better than the Podunk high gene pool makes more sense to the AIA than a more socialist everybody gets to play in the game philosophy. I hate to make this about capitalism but, money driving sports tends to monopolize it, making the best teams in the biggest markets perennial winners and smaller "markets" suffer. I wouldn't blame the system, though. I blame the money.
Scarpia, B: Didn't I say that?
'Looking at the covers of this year's issues, I think we've done some great work," but don't hurt yourself patting yourself on the back. You have a long way to go.
Your completely wrong about people being alone when LARGE TRUCKS USE TWO Spaces. And BTW, what you are doing to peoples vehicle's is vandalism (witch is illigal) if you are putting large items under the tires, chemicals on the body of the vehicle, littering the vehicles with your trash. If this ever happens to my vehicle I will be looking up you up "Tom Danehy". Were not breaking the law taking up two spaces.
