Here's an interesting observation for the editor; the issue is dated the 12 of December and yet an advertisement in the paper's header is for concert on 10 December. Nice job!
FACTS... a wooden stake in the heart of liberalism.
Actually, Dan, you have never been particularly cordial to me. The only time I met you, you were not very inclusive in the conversation. If you will recall, I got up and spoke to the restaurant manager after a few minutes of being ignored. But your rudeness or politeness to me personally is neither here nor there; I'm just putting the truth on the record so you can't mislead about what happened. And ever since the Weekly got rid of its staff writers and turned them into poorly paid freelancers -- which occurred before your time -- I have never been a fan. I can't stand so called progressive publications that are hypocritical in their own labor practices. Nevertheless, Tim stuck with you and turned out terrific articles. So my comment wasn't personal to you but to the politics of The Weekly in general. And yes, I am a friend of Tim's. I don't know the details of what happened but I trust his integrity.
Edie/Karyn/Save/et al: As you might imagine, the situation is far more complicated than I'm able to discuss, and there's no particular winning scenario in trying to defend the decision, but I can assure you we didn't make the choice based on a cowardly or kneejerk reaction.
Always nice when people who were ostensibly cordial to your face say terrible things about you online, however. Charming.
jlm713, the implication for both the Republicans and Tea Party is treason. Meanwhile the consistent comments how great the Democrats are and how bad everyone else tells the entire story of Tom's narrow-mindedness and bigotry. If Tom were to remove his head from his ass and read something other than the DNC and White House talking points, he may have a chance at making an informed statement. As with the rest of the "liberal lemmings" they are afraid to do any research because they would discover how wrong they have been for many years.
LouisWoo, you may want to read something other than the revisionists' history and look at facts, your ignorance of the FACTS is appalling.
Updating Jim's story, CD2 Congressional candidate Ed Martin has released a statement about how he would have voted on the House budget agreement. That statement can be seen at http://edmartinforus.com/news/index.asp?q=detail&nid=26.

Tim Vanderpool's Current column was one of the two reasons I read the Weekly. He wasn't afraid to cover and expose the nitty gritty of what's happening in Tucson. I don't see anyone else covering those topics since his absence. Personally, I want to thank him for educating the masses about the horrific "sport" call greyhound racing. He was doggedly reported about the many ills and injustices at Tucson Greyhound Park.
Also what happened to Dave Devine? I don't see him in Currents any more either?
Tim is a thorough, ethical journalist. Shame that The Weekly doesn't want a real journalist, one who rocks the boat. Our loss.
Tim Vanderpool is the best -- a great investigative reporter who clearly pissed off the powers that be at the cowardly Weekly. Your talents were wasted here, Tim. I'm glad you've moved on to outlets that appreciate your work and remunerate you well for it (or at least a helluva lot better than what you doubtless got at the Weekly).
At least he's not claiming "affluenza"...
Arizona white supremacists have imported from Michigan a disgraced radio shock jock who is heard often on 104.1 FM, had to flee Michigan when he got caught faking a drowned dog story, calls himself superman but has a bad ticker, dark soul who often mocks Mexicans, now I am white as rice so before the racists start accusing me of being illegal that one will not fly here!:-) To ad insult to injury the white supremacists imported a second 104.1 FM shock jock a white man trapped in a black mans body who constantly denigrates his own race on air as shiftless, lazy and entitlement addicts! In a bygone era they called such a old uncle tom, but my view is they are just some poor self hating black person trapped in the wrong body!:-) The good thing is they are in misery here in Tucson since they will never run anything, the right wingers at 104.1 FM and their pals at channel 9 cannot get a right wing dog catcher elected down here and thank god we do not have one of their messiahs like Arpaio costing us tens of millions in lost civil suit judgments!
Racism exists every where in the world, every city, country, state, county etc. in USA has a racist, in Tucson they had a merry band of 8 whom one used to see in the news all the time burning Mexican flags, one a old lesbian was caught sneaking into the rogue minute man trial of her friend Forde, now on death row for child murder! Do not worry bad karma comes to these folks, nothing good will come to them in the long run, if not getting their due on earth, that lake of fire will be one rude awakening and shock and awe moment when they realize its never going to end!
Also, I was looking up her record in the public court records, and there are definitely charges for Lisa Deborah Frank, which is her full name, you can find ones that involve her ex husband as well.
Rconnelly-Apparently it is. There was a quote in the original article where she talks about how when she uses her credit card, people notice her name, and she remarks something along the lines of "Isn't it funny that I have the same name?!"
sex with weed! Hey yo!
What the hell is wrong with people?
but her real name isn't lisa frank is it?
Buffy, you are correct. Half Mohawk on my father's side and a quarter Oneida on my mother's side.
I liked Jack Korpela. He is certainly better than that other obnoxious guy they have. He is too full of himself. KVOA has the market on the hot reporters too. Quite frankly, if I am going to hear bad news, I want to hear it from hot women reporters. I can't stand that Samantha Ptashkin though.
