I don't see anyone from Tucson commenting on this thread so apparently not many even read this trash.
I've been vegan for 25 years and consider it one of the best decisions of my life (my doctor agrees). Here's a video to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice and why the number of vegans has doubled in the US in less than 3 years.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKr4HZ7ukSE
Also, here's a link for everyone who wants to join the revolution: 21-Day Vegan Kickstart http://www.pcrm.org/health/diets/kickstart/kickstart-programs
@fraser007: The now (thankfully) departed PCC chancellor had a background as a night school president, and did not believe in the value of athletics. Considered them a necessary evil, so he allowed for the bare minimum.
All the best wishes to the new PCC Football Coach. But why is it we went from the team Scurran built to years of dismal records. I tend to think was the PCC Admin. They only want to have local talent. That's nice but nobody else is doing it. You can't build a good team with Cholla and Sunnyside students only. Time to grow up.
Danehy needs to stick with girls basketball, charter schools and insulting German foreign students.
Maybe he should check to see what the crime rate is now in South Africa. It's about six times the USA rate. or two times the rate in Chicago.
I'm happy to be vegan, and I absolutely can't stand PETA. They give us all a bad name with their head-bashing techniques. Their cruelty to innocent passersby should inspire an organization of protestors the way factory farms inspired them. And for the record, not all of us are self-righteous jerks who think we have the right to tell other people what to eat. If it interests someone I'll talk to them, maybe even cook for them, but I'm not high and mighty enough to wander the streets touting my diet choices. Puh-leaze.
I hope that Bella Sirena security (and or the people who checked them in) didn't know they were cartel. We've been going for years with our kids and have always felt safe in the resorts. I get that it is Mexico and you have to be aware of your surroundings around town, but it is disapointing to say the least that this happened in one of the resorts. The debate will always go on whether it is ultimately safer in the US or Mexico particularly Rocky Point. Probably about wash. Just sucks that this happened at a resort.
Barney littletree narcho, you say "as we do yours", it just isn't true. People do NOT respect my choice to be vegan, they make jokes and try to make me eat meat all the time. I'm so happy that you don't step on other's rights to chose what they put in their body, but most people sadly feel entitled to when someone's diet is different from the "norm". That said, PETA is definitely not my favorite organization and I don't support this protest. I support vegans being normal people that respect others.
They should paint it every year and teach the lesson of impermanence and the realization that making your mark isn't a "do it once and rest on your laurels" thing. We weren't painting the rywalls when I went to Utterback but we made our mark every chance we got with outstanding performances and art shows. It's a painted wall, not the bastion of civilization.
Also, the "cover" photo doesn't look like a mural as much as a taggers training ground. Make themed murals, there's enough wall space that every first period class could have some space. Make your mark by celebrating THAT class, that moment. Then, at the end of the school year, document it and await the return of students for a NEW project. Every student would get two opportunities to make their mark.
No one likes change but you can always count on it. Learn this life lesson now and celebrate the opportunity for a fresh new canvas!
What do we do when the animals overrun us? Smile and be happy? Shove your vegan lifestyle up a cows anus, kill it and serve it to me medium rare.
It's okay, Micah. People aren't always on the same wavelength, and it's clear to me that the perceived notion of being above others who aren't locals is very prevalent in this article. We appreciate the chance to play anywhere; it's fun, it's slightly nerve-fraying, and it's experience! But it's people's choices to like us or to not. I'm not going to get upset about this review, it felt like it came from a pretty close minded place that clearly catered to the local acts. All I can say is from our experience with the friendly folks out in Tucson, I'm sure we can opt out of damning their pretentious and close-knit community with our presence. And besides, the venue was closing anyways, if the DIY scene remains this uppity and unfriendly to touring acts, they can keep all their local bands so they don't have to support musicians from all walks of life.
this is really disheartening. I really loved Tucson and have had some really awesome times there. But talking shit on a touring band (a great one nonetheless) is pretty low. I appreciate the kind words said about me, but I admire these guys, and I assure you if I had written this review there would have been some big differences. It just make me sad to see an extremely talented, kind, and dedicated band drive for hours to play a show just to get bashed in the local newspaper.
I am a homo sapien sapien. I have evolved on this planet into an omnivorous mammal. I have eyes facing forward like any predator to make me a more efficient hunter. I love wildlife. It's delicious.
You are all heart...probably a good Christian...in your dreams. in real life you very mean spirited. What exactly is "smut?"
"All animals have the same parts" - really PETA? Does that include pit bulls? How about the animals you take in your front door that people think are being adopted out? Are they included in "all"?
How few people realize that there is little that is 'ethical' about PETA. They advocate for breed specific legislation to outlaw pit bulls, along with the euthanization of them immediately upon intake to a shelter anywhere, and have a kill rate of over 90% IN THEIR OWN "SHELTER". I'd rather go naked than donate to PETA. For more information see Nathan Winograd on Huffpost: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nathan-j-winograd/peta-kills-puppies-kittens_b_2979220.html
OK, so the point of this stunt was to encourage people not to eat mean? I don't get it; she looks pretty appetizing to me. Mixed message at best.
JCS..no one did a better job of covering the politics of Tucson and southern Arizona!
it never ceases to amaze me that some people out there can make such mean comments about public people and their livelihoods.
As for uber-Christian run KVOI....no tolerance for another viewpoint. Hypocritical and judgemental about anyone who apparently is not as holy they pretend to be.
Ron Barber never likes anything he votes for but "it's a step in the right direction."
They marched them to the ovens in Auschwitz, one step at a time.
Repeal Obamacare before Obama bails out the health insurance industry, he is bankrupting.
I demand that A & E fire her. That's hate speech and she's meataphobic.
Carnivore, the spokesperson was from Los Angeles. C'mon, bro.
That said, I'm right there next to you at Diablo Burger. Mm, flesh.
