Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

Linda, if you're so afraid of your children being exposed to opposing opinions, you will have to home school them (I wouldn't be surprised if you already do). Then, when classes are done for the day you can just lock them up in a closet. That way, they will never be exposed to horror stories such as the possibility that there just might be a God.
Don't you realize that you are subjecting your kids to censorship just like many other beautiful countries in the world such as China and North Korea ? What a dolt !

Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

If she did attend church with her children who are now grown anyway they would have learned tolerance. She's a fallen away Catholic. Linda, the church will always welcome you back with open arms. The doors are always open. You should open your mind more.

Always loved her music. We're the same age but I swear, what a political moron & embarrassing. Very diverse isn't she. More confused really.

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

Comedians peddle humor, right wing hate mongers on radio waves peddle right wing hate, racism, bigotry, etc., doubt the two mix well but guess humor to racists likely runs to the dark side of some folks human nature!;-) The good thing nationally GOP registers 32% of the electorate, Arizona it runs about 34% thank god imagine if they had a true majority of 50.1%!

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

Less than 300 votes on this comment, wonder how hard Jon Justice worked to get his fans to this site to counter the negative view of his comments?:-) In a city of 500,000 plus, with a democrat majority electorate he and his backers have been unable to turn this area in southern Arizona to the dark side/GOP ruling class, demographics is working against him and his ilk! He was on television for a time, peddling his right wing hate in visual form and his hyena laugh did not do the ratings much good I guess since it is no longer on air! Racists expose themselves by what proceeds from their mouths, written words, no one needs to call them one!

Re: “Arizona's Economic/Education Divide

Frank most of the high poverty areas are rural or in the South Tucson area not central Tucson. I don't think anything at all was mentioned about raising income. I agree that specifics were not given about how to address this issue, but it is important to communicate that what is currently being done as far as school improvement plans and putting the majority of blame on the teachers is not working. Only then can a solution be found that may work to solve the problem. Intelligence varies greatly as I am sure you are aware. That does not mean that only the brightest have the potential to learn and to be successful. As far as values, well, that is a very subjective topic in and of itself.

Linda is close minded and intolerant of different opinions

Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

Linda does not know her city very well. The majority of people are registered Democrat,more than 10 percent than Republicans. And to say that Tucson was like Mexico when she lived there is ludicrous. What drugs does she use? Also when Stalin was in power, his country was called the Soviet Union not Russia. I can see why she has faded into obscurity.

Her architectural criticism is right on about almost all of the "new Urbanism" in downtowns all over the seven Western States

Re: “Isn't It a Wonderful Life

I met him at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser years ago. I spent a good half hour with him and was impressed by his love of life and outgoing personality. His artwork was vibrant and mirrored his personality. He made a big impression on me and and my husband. Sadly, we learned that he lost his daughter in a car accident. RIP Howie. You will be missed.

Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

Just remember, Linda returned top Tucson bought a home in Midtown, then claimed she was close to DM, ranted about the people in Tucson, and what Tucson had become. I guess she forgot Tucson was turned the shithole it is because the far left liberal Democrats have squandered millions and want more. Linda is useless and does not represent Tucson nor does her whining nonsense.

Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

Since Linda Ronstadt stopped being able to continue her career as a singer the landscape of female vocalists has changed from a beautiful varied garden to a desert with only a scattering of oases. I support her as a true fan should.

Are you a true fan? You know Linda Rondstadt never had to pop out of an egg or wear a python around her neck to entertain with that wonderful voice.

Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

...the poverty rate in tech-rich San Francisco at 23 percent, almost double the official rate? Maybe you should check the "facts."

Re: “Question of the Day: Jon Justice Facebook Edition

I listen to Jon Justice, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levine, they all have one common denominator, extreme right wing, extreme dislike for folks they deem less than them, one can not make anyone a racist, its always been and always will be a self made deed, much like the old bible says about a false prophet, you know them by which proceeds from their very mouths and in modern days with printing presses, computers the written word!

Re: “Linda Ronstadt Not a Fan of Downtown These Days

Linda, Linda, Linda! Such a beautiful woman that has become so twisted by the left.
You should be thankful that your son has been exposed to people that have views other than yours. These are the things that you can use as teaching moments. As far as your not going to church I hope that you explain that it is your choice not to go to church, but as they grow older they'll be given to explore religions and perhaps they might find one that fulfills their needs or like you, they can choose whatever path of personal spiritual fulfillment they find.
And you've chosen San Francisco to live in and have your children exposed to a wide variety of view points, as long as they're all pointed to a liberal point of view! Again Linda you're not doing you or your family any favor by raising them in an area where they'll never hear any opposing points of view.
Linda, I still love hearing your music and always include you in my thoughts and prayers that you and your family live a long life in good health!
