Re: “Danehy

Donkiyoti:
Americans normally have no problem with a black man (or woman) as President. If Colin Powell had run he would have won.
He would have been the first general at a Democratic Convention or a Black nominee at a Republican Convention.
It's just that we got as the first black as President a guy like Obama.

Re: “Schools, Society And Snake Oil Salesmen

The only problem with this story is that it continues to equate educational success with test scores. In my experience, the low-income schools that manage to markedly improve test scores manage it by endless drilling and getting rid of everything that won't be tested. That means no time for science, music, art, learning through play, the list goes on and on. Do their test scores improve? Yes. Does the education being provided to the children improve? No. The high income schools aren't getting great test scores by getting rid of music in their schools. It's one more way that the divide widens.

Re: “Casa Vicente Restaurante Español

This restaurant serves world-class food and wine. The only authentic Spanish restaurant in the area, with seafood, lamb, beef, pork and vegetarian selections, as well as many smaller tapas. There is live entertainment nightly, plus the annual Flamenco Festival.

Re: “Danehy

Donkiyou, sp what. Have any of these canditates openly stated the reason for not liking the president? If not then stating so in an article that is supposrd to be professionally written only makes the remainder of the article equally suspect.

Re: “Danehy

That's true for a lot of people, Harold. But there's simply no denying that a lot of people have a deeply ingrained dislike for black people, and don't believe that a black person is up to the task of being president. Some of those people are in Congress. Others are on television and radio.

Just wait until Hillary Clinton becomes president in January 2017. A lot of these same people don't deal well with women either.

Re: “Danehy

Why all the race baiting? Not liking this president is no different than not liking his predecessor.

Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. He was a right wing nut. Is that what you mean?

Re: “UA's Liverman: "I wanted to turn my students into change agents"

This is why you don't send your children to designer schools. You will spend 50,000 a year to have your kids sort through trash for recyclables. All motivated by a depressed liberal with unicorn and rainbow dreams.

Grow up America. Act your age.

Re: “Loft Cinema Celebrates Robin Williams' Legacy, Proceeds to Benefit COPE

They should show "The Greatest Dad"......(I think that is the name) Ironic, considering how he killed himself.

Re: “Danehy

Nothing like thinking for yourself, Mark Robert.

I do agree with Jeffrey about Smith: he seems like a reasonable person. If he wins the primary, between him and DuVal, we'll end up with a decent governor.

Re: “Teresa's Mosaic Café

We ordered the cheese crisp. We forgot to order chiles on it. When she brought it back it had green peppers on it. I said these are green peppers, and she told the cook and he said no, those are green chiles. Ok. Bottom line is I was born in Tucson and raised on sonoran style Mexican food. I KNOW the difference between the two. Don't insult me by telling me different. And, and, the beans I ordered maybe were four tablespoons full. If the young man who came to the table to sooth us is the owner, oh, my, god. Good luck in the future little boy, were gone and won't be back. Barry A Malone
