Thank you, Lenny! A Tucson icon.
I have a new hero! Thanks Lenny!
.....go to their website www.theshadydell.com and check out the online reservations. The Shady Dell is closed for the Winter, but will reopen mid February. I'm so excited to see this article / post! ((((Love, Jen's Mom <3) ))))
I saw this brilliant production @the Sunday matinee - I felt as tho I was back in NYC. If you miss this version of Cabaret, blame no one but Urself.....
Hey Kevin Johnson... Having worked with Samantha Ptashkin for nearly five years I can say she is unequivocally the best multi-media journalist in Tucson. She's the whole package: smart, good judgement, a great writer and (maybe) the best photographer in the market. IF you had half her brains, talent and class you wouldn't be posting such drivel. But then given your past posts and clear regressive political leanings it's clear television isn't a source of news for you but rather a source for masterbatory material.
"...Congressman Raul Grijalva was one of 32 Democrats who opposed the budget deal..."
Because he opposes everything positive.
Oye' very! It seems Lisa Frank has been a poison pen since day one...harkening all the way back to their location at Miracle Mile/Flowing Wells.
Funny. I never bought any of her products for the same reason.
Nam6870vet: Wait, are you talking about the Cover-Up or a concert mentioned in an advertisement? If it's the Cover-Up, you have the dates wrong...it ran from the 12th through the 14th. If it's an advertisement you're talking about, I don't have any control over those...I don't even generally see them until the paper is printed.
So, thanks for noticing something, I guess?
Regina: If I didn't welcome "controversial" comments, this website would very different, I promise.
But, hey, if you don't enjoy the Weekly lately, I apologize. Feel free to email me with constructive criticism, if you'd like.
with the abandonment of science, logic and reason in the republican and tea party platform, I find the irony in your statement(s) supremely amusing.
Waiting in line to see John Densmore (The Doors) at Zia Records gave me a Best of Tucson moment. The crowd was a Tucson mix of young, older and unique...all interesting. There with my 16 year old daughter and 20 year old son, we met a woman who's most memorable quote was, "How do you make music without heroine?" She was with Cheyenne, her dog, and in the span of about 20 minutes, Cheyenne jumped on a woman in front of us, pulled a Christmas card out of another woman's purse, chewed on the buckles on my bag and tried to eat the tassels on my daughter's shoes...but Cheyenne was friendly. Behind her was Michael, the "chillest" dude ever, hipster behind him, etc. When it came to enter Zia, there was some concern from staff about the dog, so Michael suggested saving her place so she could place Cheyenne in the car. The woman's responded the dog could be stolen and there were reassurances all around regarding the unlikelihood of that...Michael almost prevailed until my daughter described a story she'd heard of stolen pugs being used as bait dogs...the dog remained and it was okay. The best of Tucson is not always in its places but its people like Michael and Zia staff who treat others with dignity and respect. It's not the first time I've seen it but every time I do I know I'm witnessing the best of Tucson.
It's unfortunate that Dan Gibson is so defensive and nasty in his responses to readers. I miss reading The Weekly edited by someone who welcomed controversial articles and comments, and who was actually a journalist.
In the early 2000s I worked for a temp agency that sent me there. The Jezebel article really describes what I saw. I was assigned customer service calls for their ordering department. I found that the online site wasn't automatic ordering at all, just a façade, orders went via email to a single person's desk who then manually processed orders. Their inventory was completely wrong - they had no idea if they had items that the site showed they had or not. I found a manager and told them I had inventory experience working for the Navy with a huge number of product items and I volunteered to at least do zero bin checks for them. The person just looked at me and said no. My work day consisted of sitting on rock hard chairs and being called all manner of cuss words by unhappy kids on the telephone. It was insane. I lasted about two weeks until I called the temp agency and told them it was a mad house and to get me out of there.
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.
