"YOUR religious beliefs are what helps shape your moral beliefs"

There is no evidence of this whatsoever. Moral beliefs are largely determined by the culture and times in which you live along with many other factors, one of which is religion.

"Im gonna marry my horse" - only if the horse can consent and that consent is upheld in a court of law.

Re: “Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby Shows Respect for City's Youth

David, David, David. You are telling us the only reason the charges were filed is out of respect for these teens? That should almost guarantee an acquittal. And then what. another round of brick throwing because there was a lack of respect by the jurors? Have you considered factual blogging? Tell us more about your vacation. When is the next one?

Re: “Zona Politics: City Budget, County Bonds, Gay Marriage at the Supreme Court & More

Wow, Bill Beard speaks with force and convincing demeanor, but where are the facts? I have no doubt the Republican County Chairman believes his arguments but lacks evidence and presents his case in a robust manner without developing facts to back up his charges.

Too bad his talk doesn't match up with facts or what is really happening in Tucson, as far as that goes in Southern Arizona. Mayor Rothschild and the City Council has really produced in a short period of time with so much to be done at the same time of explosive growth. Leadership without much positive measures from state government in Phoenix has made the task so much more difficult.

On the whole Democrat County Chair Cheryl Cage attempted to dispute each and every argument in a calm and restrained manner especially when Mr. Beard often tried to override Ms Cage by talking over her. Of course we would expect her strong defense of the Democratic Council's actions and she lived up to that.

Ms Cage sticking with reality, presenting the facts as they actually exist rather than some conjecture of strange cases of Mr Beard's twisted got to be against
even when wrong attitude. I wouldn't expect the GOP's line of agreement but I do expect some evidence at the time he tears down the achievements and accomplishments of the Tucson City Council.

Mr Beard certainly doesn't have to practice his presentation, just bone up on the facts.

Re: “Zona Politics: City Budget, County Bonds, Gay Marriage at the Supreme Court & More

Ah the old 'if we let gays marry where do we stop?' argument. Cmon. Giuseppe we're talking marriage between consenting adults. No one is asking to marry their horse or their lawnmower. Maybe they are, but that's not what this is about. And what about separation of church and state? You can worship whatever hateful god you want-just don't tread on me. PS you don't need religion to have morals. Have YOU read the bible? Skim through the love thy neighbor bits?

Re: “Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby Shows Respect for City's Youth

I am reminded of the protest 'walk' in Tucson after the events in Ferguson and how our police escorted the protesters. I was so proud of the police and Tucson. I read the DOJ report and saw the documentary about the events in Ferguson and I was and am still appalled at what the police and other officials had instituted not only in Ferguson but in the surrounding counties. Still when all that came out Michael Brown was still called a 'thug'. I asked these people if they had read the report. Silence. There are people here also on this blog that don't want the truth and justice. THey want to hate and stir it up constantly. I am also proud of all the people on Facebook who are my friends or friends of friends and only say, "Let's pray for Baltimore and all the people". My heart warms when I know there are real people in the world who care about problem solving and understand there is deep hurt in Baltimore like Ferguson. Thank you David for writing about the state attorney and her wisdom especially for such a young person. I wish I could have been that wise at 35.

Re: “For the Love of History: So Lovely Our State Legislature

Pro AHS is completely wrong. First, the legislature and Governor Brewer directed (via statute) the AHS to continue operating the mineral museum. The AHS elected to close it and loot it in direct violation of the statutes even though they continue to receive the entire budget to this day. They did so even as children were still scheduled to arrive on school tours.

Second, the four options that Dr. Woosley presented did NOT include an option for reopening the mineral museum. All options were continued violations of state statutes. How can you expect the legislature to fund a project that violates state statutes?

Complete details, with supporting references, are available on the blog Mineral Museum Madness at

Re: “Pathway's Problematic Preachings

Strange as it may sound it is actually a relief to know there are others who had the same experience I had. Another of Bob Meehan's clones is Jerry Gaither who works in Corpus Christi. I hope as laws change these ppl will no longer be able to abuse and torment children!!!!!!

Re: “Pathway's Problematic Preachings

All of the survivor stories sound so similar to my experience with PDAP. Sadly there is a female version of Bob Meehan that works in South Teas by the name of Andrea Lacy. She copies all of Meehan's dirty tricks and attitudes. So glad i was smart enough to get away from this cult before it destroyed me.

Re: “Your Opportunity to Experience "The Electro-Rave Scene" Circa 1993

This was a cool little documentary, replete with the mildly goofy early nineties dress and behavior of the host. I assume the rave was held in that on-again-off-again night club across the street to the west from the TUSD headquarters, and across the street to the south from the Hussar Electric building they showed. In around '94 or '95 that club was the 1-2-3 at one point, and then it became the NYC Club and there was always an über-douchey crowd of UA students in line to get in. After that I think it was never anything again, unless someone held another rave there.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

Fact is, Tucson is a great place to visit - my wife and I are former Tucsonans who moved to Bisbee 26 years ago and love it here but who go to Tucson for concerts and other events frequently. As someone who remembers Tucson when downtown had Steinfeld's, Jacome's, Myerson's, the Pioneer Hotel, etc., it is very gratifying to see downtown jumping again. As someone who came from Tucson's southwest side, I can only say that the mom and pop restaurants are still wonderful. the upscale restaurants downtown are superb ( Maynards, Agustin Kitchen, the Cup, etc.) Bisbee also has much to offer visitors and those seeking a smaller scale of life. It has - with one exception - nothing BUT mom and pop restaurants (there is a Burger King for the masochistic) and the choices are quite varied. Small town life will not appeal to all but it sure does to us. It is easy to make a good life here, where talented, educated, artistic, quirky people of all types and lifestyles abound. To know all your neighbors, to sit on the front porch (remember front porches?) and chat with people walking by is a very pleasant way to live. Alas, there ain't much retail shopping, but the rest is all good. And we are very grateful for visitors, as are most who live here. And remember, there's much more to Bisbee than downtown.

Re: “The Desert Goddess of Glen Canyon

The truth is, it doesn't matter whether constructing this dam was right or wrong, because it already happened. It is not something that can be undone, so we may as well take the benefits the dam brings and be grateful for them. But in another light it is important to question this decision. It is important to recognize what can be lost when we seek to control nature. When future such projects arise, we need to reflect on stories like this one, and ask ourselves if the benefits truly outweigh the sacrifice. Not, I admit, an easy decision. As for blazing this as anti-development: maybe it is. But someone has to be. If everyone just says "Develop, develop develop!" we will overwhelm this planet's resources in the blink of an eye. A diversity of opinions is actually for the best.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

past bisbee - Apparently you haven't been here for a while. Old Bisbee Brewery has seasonal beers that change approximately quarterly. Currently, they are featuring Holy Grail, made with indigenous hops hand picked in the Mule Mountains and Father Kino Wheat Beer, made with organic wheat, grown in Marana, that was a long-lost variety initially introduced to the area by Father Kino. They are the only microbrewery in Arizona malting this variety of wheat in house (although one or two Tucson microbreweries and a bakery are also utilizing the same wheat, OBB is taking it a step further). Their seasonal beer over the holidays was a stunning apricot vanilla brandy porter - the best beer I've ever tasted. They won best microbrewery in Arizona in 2013. They artfully produce so much more than Copper City Ale (a recipe that they resurrected that was first made in the Gulch in the 1800s). As for restaurant options, apparently you haven't yet experienced several newcomers including Table Ten, Contessa's Cantina, and the Quarry. I have not yet personally experienced Table Ten but have heard nothing but great things about it. Since you apparently dislike Santiago's (you know what they say about opinions), Contessa's, a short walk up Main Street, might be more to your taste as it is more home style Sonoran. And the Quarry has raised the bar on the Gulch and Old Bisbee in general with comfort food and well-executed cocktails serve from breakfast into the wee hours (to go along with their constant stream of local and out of town live musical offerings). Just bringing you up to speed as your commentary doesn't appear to be based on the current conditions in Bisbee. It is totally worth the visit.
