Re: “Obstacle and Trail Competition

Re: “Interplanetary Angst at the Armpit Apartments

This dedicated little troupe consistently delivers fine performances of plays by local author Pere Summers and such tried-and-true entertainment as Sherlock Holmes, along with well-acted readings from classic mystery and comedy authors. Give them a try!

Re: “Tucson Inventor Group Monthly Meeting

I got so much help and inspiration from the Tucson Inventor Group!
It was a breath of fresh air to talk with other intellectuals! Most of the members are experts in their field, so it was nice to get free feedback on my product idea! Everyone is so supportive!
I left the meeting all fired up to move my idea forward!
I will definitely be there "first Thursday" each month!

Re: “Dry River Company

Didn't expect to write a review but I did not want the above post to be the last, since he was mistaken about it being closed.

My wife and I enjoy a pizza and beer most Friday's before going into the adjacent movie theatre. The service, pizza and beer are always very good. Pizza is delicious, with much of the ingredients made on site. The glasses are chilled (as they should always be) and the draft choices should serve everyone's taste (although I can never get enough dark lager choices anywhere). The service is fast, perfect and always very personal. I would give a shout-out to the server by name, but I don't like doing that if I have not asked the individual first. She always remembers us, and what we like, even though we are never there more than once a week for one beer and a pizza.

Re: “Presidio San Agustín de Tucsón

Regarding review from 04/09/2014 on Living History Days, "No mention of the Apaches?" 1) Talk to docents and any of the historical interpreters, look at posted info and books in the shop; 2) Yes, the Tucson Weekly staff could post a bit more; 3) Other mention and historical interpretation depend on having more volunteers do more work-- we are full up and many cover other sites and events as well--but could use more people; perhaps some descendants of "Manzo" Apache might serve--or others with serious interest--let us know.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Bless, Keep and Protect Our Free Press

Hey David, did you notice that in the first online version of Tim Steller's piece, "Attempts to fire Superintendent roil TUSD," Steller expressed, in passing, his personal opinion that Sanchez should not retain his job? Then, a day or so after the piece originally appeared, the Star noted it had been "updated" and that opinion was no longer in the piece. It had been edited out.

You expressed your opinion in one of your recent blogs here in TW that Sanchez should remain Superintendent, and your opinion was allowed to stand in this publication. But Steller's opinion was erased from the Star. Who erased it, and why?

Is Steller less entitled to an opinion -- or to expressing it -- than you are? Is this a sinister local example of what you refer to in this blog, the press "forfeit[ing] its effectiveness [...] to our peril. Possibly the most dangerous is self censorship, where a reporter, a columnist or an editor decides an honest story is too dangerous to print because it may offend an advertiser or a community leader or a powerful politician."

I believe it is, and I've seen plenty of it since I started following the Star's battered and beleaguered attempts to provide anything resembling honest and complete coverage of the largest local school district in a context where the district's agents constantly try to undermine and trash talk their reporting. (What happened to Alexis Huicochea David? Why is she no longer covering TUSD?)

Here's my humble opinion, David: if there are in fact "benevolent powers are out there watching over us," I don't think they like you and your friends very much. Another commenter penned this apt remark on another of TW's BS TUSD stories, but it applies to the subject of this blog, media manipulations, as well: "I'm sorry Foster/Grijalva machine. we pretty much know exactly what you do. And many of us want you to stop it."

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Bless, Keep and Protect Our Free Press

If you truly fact-check your stories, there's no need to feat "fake news." Yeah, like that's going to happen.

Re: “Death in the Arizona Borderlands

I'm sorry, but can we please stop infantilizing these people? Walking through the desert, particularly in the summer and particularly in the day time, is really, really dangerous. Every Arizona school child (and probably every Sonoran school child too) knows this. It is not our fault that the Mexicans, Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans coming over the border choose to confront this obvious risk. When an Arizonan drives into a flooded wash, putting himself, his passengers, and his rescuers at risk, we do not write sob-stories about the human toll caused by our hard-hearted failure to build bridges everywhere. We do not pretend that the driver bears no responsibility for his action. In fact, we fine the driver and label them "stupid" under the law. Illegals are not children. They bear as much responsibility for the risks they assume as a stupid motorist trying to cross a flooded wash.

Re: “TUSD Superintendent Firing Update: Nothing To See Here, Folks (For Now).

So the Superintendent should be fired because of the complexities arising from his reduction of class size?

Re: “Editors Note

Why should I sign up? Your buddies Rat and What haven't bothered to and you aren't complaining to them about that.

You got your nose jammed in the rears of plenty of people who post here that haven't signed up and they have posted under all different kinds of usernames. Rat T didn't disappear for several weeks, he just decided to post under different names during that time.

Also, I never labeled you as insignificant. A distant 3rd place isn't bad considering all the trolling that's happening on the TW site. You just need to work a little harder than Rat and What are, that's all.

P.S. -- I chuckled when you mentioned looking at old comments to see if all that is done is insulting people. That's some serious "pot calling the kettle black" stuff going on there. Thanks for the laugh dude.

We do not have the need to steal lottery tickets to win money.

We win the money by simply looking a few days into the future at the winning numbers, then we go back in time to use those numbers before what you mere mortals call the "current" draw date.
