To those who commented on my post, I think you missed the point. I was not supporting Arpaio's decision, I was attempting to make an ironic comment about his politics as April 30th, 1945 marks the death of Adolf Hitler. Ignorance is evidently not limited to the right wing.
Thieves and Con Artists.............
I ate there twice last week. Very good.. the Flank steak was excellent as were the salads and the pannecota was excellent...
Zed: *Hint* It has to do with ending Apartheid.
*2nd Hint* It also has to do with establishing freedom and democracy in South Africa, and successfully bringing reconciliation between people there.
Please don't leave this story hanging out there. Were the flags lowered or not? If they were then at least update.
Please validate whether this story was ever true. I see nothing about this story on any news source.
los betos still the best . . .
I am sure I did, not sure what I wrote though, as it has been changed.
Downtown had to grow up sometime but unfortunately, it took those with deep pockets to make this happen. Perhaps the 4th ave underpass is becoming a dividing line. Funky 4th and Congress street too good for us plebes.
Did you mean "exorbitant"?
As a kid growing up in western NY I had such a place. That old gate was relatively stable and the time displacement was much longer than mentioned in an above story. These are old star gates and there are many around the planet. The one near Arivaca sounds like it needs help and not something to play with. You have no way of knowing how scary it can be when you're stuck someplace until its happened to you.
I ended up in a clean up operation during the Civil War. That was real ammo zinging by my head. Men died covering me as I figured out how to go back. The idea of running into large dinosaurs is a definite possibility also. My sister almost found the hard way and needed "help" afterwards. Another time,a piece of man was left and thrown through the gate during an eating session, don't think he ever knew what hit him. His wife got back their wedding ring, only a piece of skin and part of his left hand was left. I gave that ring back to the local sheriff.
The problem with these gates is there a part that most people can't see. Those arches mark its presence in our current reality, but when those arches fall, the gate is still there.
I would like to visit the gate there in the near future, but want to see other events are occurring locally. Time inversions reaching as far as those mentioned indicate a particular problem. Other events may not seem to be of significance, but unless you have spent time with one of these old gates, you may not know. Most are configured the same way, although depending on who built them that can vary.
Information is key and not the location. What I'm looking for is anything out of the ordinary in the surrounding 20 mile area. Beyond the usual stuff. The various events already mentioned indicate one thing What else is being found or seen?

Decades ago, they had a smashed Honda and a smashed Yamaha outside, over the doors.
Yep. The photo above says it all. There used to be a time when the whole front and back of the place was lined with bikes. Also, there used to be a time when it was hard to find a place to tack a bra on the ceiling ;)
They did a great job with the space. The food, as always, is outstanding.
Arizona and it's leaders are not known for honoring the civil rights of their own citizens, why would you expect them to honor Nelson Mandela, Mother Theresa, or the Pope for that matter? Arizona's flags should probably fly at half mast everyday until we get leaders elected that actually respect the God given Civil Rights of ALL citizens.
"lack of ignorance"
Why would we lower an American flag for a South African communist and terrorist sympathizer? (His best friends that he defended rigorously were Arafat, Ghadafi and Fidel Castro) How does that make Joe a racist?
fraser007: You got my hopes up. I thought you meant Arpiao was no longer with us.
I read that one of the speakers at the funeral is Raul Castro.
I actually think the other photo in the NYT story--the one of the mother hugging her son thru the fence--is a better image than this one. Nonetheless, nice to see Samantha get recognized for her work. She's a pretty sharp photog that really flew under the radar here in Tucson.
