The estimable Forkan, Miller and Robinson's works gratefully acknowledged, I'd like to mention that there is still also a lot of great southwestern landscape art in this town.
Well who doesn't come off well when Hollywood deems them worthy to have their life told on film. Just look at Bonny & Clyde, Jake LaMotta, or Francis Marion. I'd say John Nash is in good company.
Many thanks for this review. I'll be at the Tucson Festival of Books with Elmore Leonard at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Thanks for the info Pattie. I had several others I wanted to include but I ran out of space.
Nice batch of books! I would also add the wonderful collection of docent recipes published several years ago, "Dining with the Desert Museum".
As long-time Tucsonans probably know, Francisca was the wife of Lloyd who ran Lloyd's Mexican Restaurant on Sixth St., one block east of Park Ave. Great food and a great little family restaurant.
[i]"Before I go any further, I want to say something to any climate-change deniers out there: Please, for the sake of the rest of us (not to mention the planet), pull your heads out of your ponderous asses. There is no doubt that climate change is happening. It is directly tied to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, an earthshaking development in human history that led directly to a massive increase in the combustion of fossil fuels and thus their combustion products. It is supported by an irrefutable body of scientific facts. Not believing in climate change is like not believing in gravity, or not believing that the Earth is round."[/i]
To start an article out with a pointed insult to those who don't believe in many things, is not a way to win over any reader, whether they be liberal or not. Climate change has been happening to the planet for thousands and millions of years you 'ponderous ass'. (example; the coming and going of the ice age) It was only thanks to man and the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, that the process was sped up ten fold. The planet will change (as everything does) and all we can do is adapt and help slow the process, by taking more care into how we do things.
Ultimately, climate change will happen whether you like it or not.
I will read this book as I do wish to read into another person's view on how the world is changing through their eyes.
The exhibition sounds interesting. With regard to your editorial comments about the wall as a "monster" that "scars the landscape", you might want to consider the fact that it has also been responsible for a tremendous improvement in the quality of life for residents on the U.S. side - many of them Mexican-Americans of quite modest means - who for years were adversely impacted by the crime and general disorder emanating from the other side. There is a reason the Border Patrol is more popular in Nogales than in certain parts of Tucson, and to be intellectually honest about border issues requires one to wrestle with that fact.
On a recent swing through San Diego, Lane Van Ham was a guest of our organization, Jubilee Economics, for a presentation and a podcast. For those interested, the presentation, addressing a number of border-minded activists, clergy, and educators, is on YouTube at http://youtu.be/zoxFR4Wf-Ko. (Apologies that it's rather plain a presentation. We didn't get the room we planned on.) And the podcast, A Common Humanity, can be heard at http://goo.gl/qHGJu (bottommost link in the article).
There's plenty of information to enhance the reading of the book itself.
The Amity Foundation's Dragonfly Gallery at 188 E. Broadway Blvd. (just west of Etherton Gallery) is also having an opening on Saturday, Feb. 4th.
I went to the mission with my boys in 2000 and had very strange experiences. Staying a a neaby hotel I had dreams abour a priest and how a women feel in love with him and he refused her love because she had an affair.. Then when I went there I went to the hill nearby where the gate is and saw and felt such terror, fear and destruction. It was like people were being massacred all around. Then when I went to go in the church it was hard fir ne. I just wanted to cry and my boys had to kead me in. Looking around I felt so much pain and couldn't even look at anything without feeling so strange. It was kike I had to get out of there and once I got outside I could breath. Even looking at pictures now I just see glowing and someting I don't understand. I saw so many strange visions there and don't really understand them.
Thank you Michele Skillett Lincoln Nebraska

Thanks for the insightful review, Tim. Back in early November, the Pinal County Greens recommended this book: http://pinalcountygreens.blogspot.com/2011…
I hope it's okay that I just posted an update linking to your review. Thanks again!
Dragonfly Art Gallery
I used to dance there and so did my daughter. It was short-lived. Don't waste your time or money... she is loony!!
Nothing says professional quite like this Facebook post written by adult dance director Donna Doell using baby talk while pretending to be her recently deceased cat to sell tickets for this years Nutcracker being performed by a time to dance. Enjoy!
Sugarbaby-Mascot of A Time to Dance
"Me Maccot of duh Nutcwwackerz ballet dancing. yay! Mommy's ballerinaz are beautimous and gigantigous talentz. me proud of allz mommy's dancer peepul."
I think the director of the show should stop commenting on these reviews. It is obvious and embarrassing.
It's a school for god sake. NOT ATC. Learn the difference.
The audiences are loving the show, silly. I heard they added another show and ticket sales increased. Hmm, maybe it's because people are ENJOYING IT! Word of mouth is a powerful thing! I hope it drives you out of trying to review shows in the future! Because you don't know how!
You're ridiculous! The show is beautiful and it always makes me cry. Hopefully, patrons will ignore you.
