Re: “Boomtown Rat

Read Casey Tefertillers "Wyatt Earp : The Life Behind the Legend" alongside this if you want to see the man, not just the criminal.

Re: “Finding Beauty in Asphalt

Fantastic. Otherwise mundane scapes come alive. You really have to see these prints in person. The power of old film is the print. And the printer. I hope she did them all on her own.

Re: “Dry World

Let's just divert the remaining puddles of the Colorado River to Southern Arizona --- let a thousand trees grow and flowers bloom --- fly fishing in the Santa Cruz river -- tubing --- fantasies ...

Re: “Water Worries

wow, this looks like a great book. I often wonder how we can sustain this life as it gets hotter and drier every year.

Re: “Dry World

Will we ever learn? Why in the world would we let the San Pedro River be pumped dry? Why would we listen to the ridiculous claims that by pumping enough groundwater for an additional 7,000 homes nears it's banks there will be no impact on the flow of the river. Do they (the developers) think we are that stupid? Or do they think we are that greedy and short sighted?

Re: “Dry World

This looks awesome. The loss of riparian habitat in SE AZ due to groundwater pumping is heartbreaking. And yes, I'm fully aware that by living here I am part of the problem.

Re: “Bird Brains

Margaret, I really like your approach with this review: identifying and summarizing a common theme with much of the artwork (i.e. birds), and then then sorting it all out with an ad hoc "awards ceremony". You should take it a step further, and create a "Regan" award for each of those categories. "And the winner of the Regan for 'Best Vacation' goes to....!" And then email the winner a little jpg file of the award graphic. ;)

Re: “Hapless Hippies Foul The Frontier

The hippie culture has changed in Taos.. The communes and the race wars over..The annual Hippies vs Indians baseball game was today, a 30 year tradition..

Re: “High Tide in Tucson

The headline is disappointing; I was expecting some reference to the book by our local author, Barbara Kingsolver. Her book entitiled High Tide in Tucson: Essays From Now or Never is one of my favorites.

Re: “Ode Jobs

I have been thoroughly, delightfully impressed by Root's translations. I'd like to suggest readers visit the site for more information on Neruda, including a biography, a documentary, and more.

Re: “Bullies at the Border

Chuckle. Yes, that David Duke-led Klan Border Watch of 1980 -- which just coincidentally resembled the Minuteman operation of April 2005 in many ways -- was just a figment of my imagination, created to sell books.

Here's an article that lays out the lineage pretty clearly:…

Thanks for the nice review, Christine. I really came to love Tucson in my time there.

Re: “Bullies at the Border

I guess if this book can compare the Minute men to the KKK then I can compare illegals to invading hordes that want to take over our county and destroy it through monetary means by leaching off our government.
But one is true and the other is just to sell a book. Where are the book burners when we need them?

Re: “Tasty Serial

I have every book written by Joe Brown, Best books I have ever read! I sure hope he writes 60 more, I am 77 so that should get me to the end of my time! I was in Patagonia several time from 1960, my Mother & Dad lived in Tucson (running horses). I loan my books to any one who wants to read them, even sent one to a lady (hair dresser) in Rapid City, SD, she was born in Patagonia. Kaleta Jones Torti, Athens, Texas

Re: “America's Indian

Robert Utley has the "chops" to write an accurate history of Geronimo unembellished by all of the revisionist guilt that seems to prevail in most recent movies and books about the Apache indians.

The "bad indians" vs. "good indians" reversal in modern popular perceptions really misses the complexities of the conflicts that existed in the 19th century "Indian Wars" period. Robert Utley has a wealth of knowledge on the period and is a reliable source for the history of that time.

Re: “Women on a Sex Strike

I saw the show opening night and was more than pleased that I chose to go! Hilarious, inventive and full of feminism, Lysistrata offers more than a quirky joke or two. A must see!

Re: “A Big Honor for Big Jim

I worked at Old Tucson when Jim was in 'Diamond Studs' he was very funny - I am trying to find any photos of that stage musical to post on the Old Tucson Alumni Facebook page - if anyone has any I would love to see them.

Re: “Tracing History

Thank you for the nice review of the show! Also if your in the Phoenix area Chris Pappan will have works at the Heard Museum Indian Market on March 2nd and 3rd, and also at the "Outside The Lines" exhibit at the Heard museum north in Scottsdale. Ryan Singer will also be showing more of his work at the 1205 Space, (1205 W. Pierce St Phoenix) opening Friday, March 1st . I would also just like to point out that the above image is by Ryan Singer and not Chris Pappaus.
