Re: “The Never-Ending Scrutiny

Those silly Az politicians thinking will change, say around..election time when the unsuspected, but fast growing political might of those they are trying to "keep in line" through lack of education, suddenly find themselves the "minority" with it, it will happen, just a matter of time!

Education=power, all USA citizens should want to build our youth, not limit them!

Re: “A Delicate Balance

Excellent Asian fare. Wonderful curries and noodle dishes. I have tried Malaysian food in several major cities and it simply doesn't compare. The occasional service glitch is offset by the fantastic creative tasty food. Quite possibly the best Asian cusine in the state. Shouldn't be a well kept secret.
Rather a Tucson treasure...

Re: “The Skinny

The ACA no matter how you tweek it is a loser. Obama will veto everything because that is his baby.

I have to agree that Ducey is stupid to make blanket absolute proclamations. Mr. Governor you have disappointed me already. You are painting your self in a box just like Obama did.

Re: “Danehy

I posted a picture of me on my bike for years. After I sold it I changed it to my dog in his N.Y. Rangers jersey. As far as names go, years ago I sent a letter to the Red Star and my parents got flooded with nasty phone calls. My father and I have the first name. My number is unlisted, his isn't. At their age they don't need nasty calls from 'civil' liberals. Who cares? Obviously you do or you wouldn't have bothered to write. Too easy, Brother. Too easy.

Re: “Transgender Asylum Seeker in Immigration Detention Demands Release After Facing Sexual Abuse

So, Ricky, to be clear, are you arguing for or against the sick policies in place that allow sexual harassment of detainees?

Give the test to the incoming Legislators immediately. See if any pass.

Re: “Darkness Visible

I imagine that this thing will evaporate when they discover that there is a lot of unaccounted for union resources around election-time ( e.g. the " ground game") . Let's hope the dems think that they lost the Senate because there was some sinister financial force....and not because The chosen One and Harry Reid were inept.

Great! Thanks to Obama's sick border policy, America now not only gets the "Chinese hordes" coming over but the freaks and criminally inclined as well.

Hey cw 13...Brave soul! Don't sign your name and publish a picture of yourself.
Mouth off about folks likes and dislikes without comment. Who cares? Meaningless clicks, it's not the Gallup Poll!
I'll still read your comments and judge accordingly. Today's measure, dislike. Sign your name.

Re: “Arizona's Most Iconic Restaurant Is a Tucson Institution

Getting in on this late. I have some roots in this town, my mom came here (alone) as a 16-year-old in 1929. My parents met an married here in the 30s but my dad's wanderlust had them in San Diego when I was born, a few weeks before the outbreak of WWII. So they were stuck there until the end of the war, after which they returned to Tucson. (There's a good chance I was conceived here, so I consider myself a native.) Furthermore, I grew up on the southside, so I also consider myself a good judge of Mexican food.

That said, I've usually avoided El Charo, but a few times I've returned, often at the request of other people. The last time (and I do mean the LAST time) my late wife found ourselves downtown on a day when everything else was closed. So in desperation we stopped into El Charo.

As usual, it was a disaster. My wife's enchiladas came out cold. After an interminable wait for the waiter to stop grabassing one of the waitresses and come back to our table, we sent them back. So while I continued to eat, she waited. Then they came out again and once again they were cold. The third time they were delivered, they were hot, but by this time I was finished with my meal. So now she ate and I watched.

When the check came, I couldn't wait to get out there so I took it up to desk. The guy asked me, "How was everything, Sir?" I replied, "You don't want to know." He said, "Of course I want to know."

So I proceeded to unload on him. He listened to me then asked, "You from out of town, Sir?" I can only conclude that he felt that if I was he wasn't going to see me again, what did it matter. My thought is, why does it matter?

I replied, "No, I'm a Tucson native. I come here once every ten years or so to see if it's improved. It hasn't!" He wordlessly opened the drawer and handed me my money back.

Re: “Quick Bites

Heather Hoch must have visited a different Street Taco and Beer from the one I went to on opening day. Could be because the one I went to is actually ON Congress and is not north of Church. It's difficult to be north of Church, since it runs north and south, but why let facts get in the way of a good fairy tale.

And a fairy tale she tells. I had what are normally my favorite, the carne asada tacos, and they were seriously wanting. Not horrible, but not good either. The dollop of meat, rather than being hot off a grill, was apparently prepared way ahead of time and dished up out of a pan on a not so warm warming table. Hence my tacos were a falling apart, soupy mess of lukewarm meat.

My fiance, had one carnitas taco and one fish taco. The piece of fish was tiny and featured more breading than fish. The carnitas, like everything else, was cold and incrusted in congealed grease. She couldn't eat it.

The chips are self-serve and in a word, horrible. The worst corn chips you got out of a bag at the supermarket are better than these. It's as if they were cooked a week ago, perhaps someplace else, and put under a light bulb since then. Rather than being the color of say---a corn chip---they were a medium brown. The taste and texture was consistent with the foregoing.

There is a plethora of salsas available. We availed ourselves of two, a pico de gallo and a smooth green labeled, "hot". It was only moderately so. The pico de gallo was lacking any heat whatsoever. What is was not lacking was salt. It and the green salsa were way too salty; perhaps an attempt to engender an increased thirst for beer.

We suspect that beer sales are the rational for this place. If so, they're going to have to lower their prices. I guess they have a good selection, although I stopped looking when I saw my favorite, Dragoon IPA. But as much as I love it, $5.50 is too much to have me partaking of it at Street Taco, even if they solve their shaky service (I gave them a pass on this, attributing it to opening day jitters) and improve the food.

Re: “How a Gin Rickey Can Help Save Your Diet

Almost, but not quite, a gimlet with soda. I love gimlets which of course are made with Rose's Lime Juice. Make a gimlet and pour it in a tumbler over ice and fill it with seltzer for a great summer drink.

13 dislikes and not one of you with the balls to say why. I was put on this planet to annoy the left and not one of you has figured out that the more dislikes I get better I feel. Gives a whole new meaning to shooting fish in a barrel.
