Re: “In the Flesh: Kinky Boots at Centennial Hall Delivers Sweet Heart

The Sunday night show was fantastic. Kinky Boots has been a fav of mine since the movie so was great to get a chance to see the touring company.

Re: “Retooled

What are the prices like? What about a real review of the food?

The TW has really dropped the ball on it's restaurant section. Do you guys get paid by the restaurants for this droll? Because this whole section comes off as an advertisement now, even the Star has moved away from that crappy concept.

Re: “Streets of This Town: Cellphone Death Tag

You're report confirms what we already suspected. Scum bags are here in Tucson. There seems to be a diversity of race, culture, and creed. I hope this is POC.. If not, then deal with it..

Re: “Retooled

The food in the photograph looks damned good!! I will definitely be trying this place. As far as "new or different" goes I don't recall that claim being made in the article. So, while I enjoy my food others can complain all they want about things that don't matter.

Cheers!!! The Hamburglar

Re: “"Kiss Me, I'm the Descendant of Irish Immigrants!"

" [The Irish] were nobodys ideal of the desirable immigrant. The typical Irish Catholic arrival in New York or Boston was a peasant with little formal education and few material resources. Worse, these people were religious aliens the papist hordes who threatened to swamp Protestant civilization and, in their ignorance and superstition, destroy enlightened democratic American values."

Yes, and God forbid they should be allowed or enabled, through the use of public funds, to educate their children in Catholic schools, where the horrors of "Popery" would be passed on to another generation. Like the children of Native Americans, they needed to be educated in state-sponsored, government controlled schools that could wash the dirt of their parents' religion and culture (a.k.a. "ignorance and superstition") off of them and transform them into "true Americans," i.e. promoters of the secularized form of WASP values transmitted in public schools that pretend to be value-neutral, but that actually convey subtle and not-so-subtle disrespect for religious traditions the Constitution of this country guarantees its citizens the right to exercise.

But anti-voucher, anti-tax-credit policy advocacy is not a form of anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant prejudice, is it, David?

Perhaps you could explain again why not. In preparing your enlightened policy explanation on this topic, consider interviewing a few descendants of Irish immigrants to get their opinions on the pros and cons of various mechanisms for funding Catholic school systems in the U.S. Then again, interviewing them might not interest you: what they believe and value doesn't matter, except when it can be used to support your pre-fab repertoire of Democratic party policy talking points. And grass roots, ground level research or "critical thinking" of any sort doesn't need to play any role in the trotting out and exercising of those tired orthodoxies.
