Remind me to cancel my plans to eat at Mi Nidito this Sunday.
Great article. I should say that Chax Press began as a publisher of handmade books of poetry, printing them on a letterpress Vandercook Press. And we still do that, in addition to publishing more commercially produced books. Never really a publisher of novels, though, except once or twice among our 150-plus books.
Thanks to Winnie and Chandler Warden.
'Tis the Season for JAZZ
Thank you for the great article, but I would like to clarity some very important items. TICKETS are $20 adults, $15 students/seniors, children under 12 FREE. You incorrectly stated seniors are free. We would hate to have a crowd of angry seniors at the door. Not the holiday spirit we are looking for. Also the TJI Ellington Big Band did not perform in Chicago this year. They performed in NYC, Fullerton & Monterey CA twice, most recently in the Monterey Jazz Festival.
Tickets are available online: www.TucsonCommunityMusicSchool.com.
Intermission will consist of desserts. Raffle and auctions items will be on display. Every seat at Berger PAC is GREAT. It is located on the campus of the AZ School for the Deaf and Blind.
Questions call Scott Black 971-6694.

You both misunderstand the basic concept of the freedom to access of information, which is a right that goes along with free speech. It's something that Brown v Board of Education covered a long time ago: there is no separate but equal. And when you teach something in a school, you give it added weight, added meaning, added significance, and when you outright deny the ability to teach these texts you tell people these texts are not as significant as others. It's not that the students don't have the right to read these texts elsewhere, which--true--is what they should be doing if they want access to more texts; rather, you limit teachers' abilities to address specific social and cultural concerns for students who might benefit most from them.
The irony here is that, when, you leave a lot of those ideas up to interpretation of, in many cases, readers are left able to interpret texts in whatever way they want. So it seems much more necessary to teach these texts inside the classroom, where they can be put in the right context, then leaving students to fend for themselves or simply accept the cultural, political, and social narrative that has been fed to them because of arbitrary borders we draw around what "is" and "isn't" good for students.
When are these people going to realize that distorting the facts (there was never any book ban!) only makes them appear foolish, untrustworthy and silly?
The students are not denied the opportunity to read this or any other book. It is just not part of the classroom curriculum. What is wrong with reading outside of school or the classroom? On her own time, my teenage daughter reads many books that are not part of her classroom curricula. These students are free to do the same any time and anywhere.

Will the Chinese culture festival be showing how dogs are 'tenderized' in China before being killed for human consumption? Will it demonstrate how dogs in China are skinned alive for both the meat and fur trades? If not, you cam go to the facebook page for 'Trade Of Shame' to see for yourself.
Great article on a great film fest. Can't wait to check it out.
And now for the rest of the story. Mr. and Mrs. Roach wore wedding bands to symbolize their wedding ceremony held in April 1998. They kept their government sanctioned marital contract secret for 14 years until it was exposed in a New York Times article -- a year and half after their December 2010 divorce -- following the tragic death of the ex-Mrs. Roach's lover ...
Mr. Roach was not a 'monk' because monks lose their ordination vow by engaging in sexual activities, which are required for valid marriage, whether or not they continue to 'wear robes' or spout slanderous lies against those who do keep their monastic vows purely.
Perhaps, in the wake of the 2012 Diamond Mountain tragedy, the Tucson Weekly will do some fact checking before publishing promotional pieces for oxymoronic liars ("a monk should have a relationship with a special lady").
Great information! I have gone on the night safari and that was very thrilling experience for me, to see the animals in night especially there shinning eyes is very scary.
The Dead Animal Museum gets kids accustomed to seeing stuffed animals killed by sportsmen. This place is despicable. The Safari Club that owns it promotes "canned hunts" and the overseas hunting of endangered species. Perhaps you should mention the "trophy room" at the museum, where the walls are lined by scores of animal heads. Truly a neat spot for children to explore.
Throughout SAAVI's website, I could find no reference to the Southern Arizona Association for the Visually Impaired. Therefore, we went with SAAVI, period, as the name.
Are we supposed to know what SAAVY stands for? It is not mentioned anywhere in the article.
Before you ignorantly trash this little circus, you should learn about it: they do not include wild animals in their act.
