Re: “The Fat Greek

A real restaurant. Well run, professional, good food, actually decorated. A reliable place to put on the list.

Re: “Arizona Theatre Company Uncertain Whether Curtain Will Rise For 50th Year

The moral of the story is to stay out of Phoenix, a high cost, non-supportive environment.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Super review. I have a new found respect for HH. Finally someone who can call a pot black. The poverty stricken neighbors who have never had a decent meal out in their lives defend this place simply because they don't know better.

If the TPOA wanted the other guy, then Ortega made the right choice.

Re: “Moving Forward

The bonds failed for all sorts of good reasons, but at the end of the day it all boiled down to a vote of no confidence in county government.

Re: “County Bond Measures Failing Vote So Far

Strikes me as really pretty simple. The voters have little to no confidence in the ability of the County Government. Why give it more money given its past performance.

On the other hand Tucson has actually accomplished something with the downtown and the voters responded by returning the incumbents to office. The unwillingness or inability of the Republicans to mount a mayoral campaign bears this out. The GOP knew it did't have an opportunity here.

I don't see things changing for the County or the voters' attitude toward it until we get some leadership (instead of mumbles) out of the County Administrator.

Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2015 Endorsements

To say it will cost the average home owner $18 a year is not a legitimate way to analysize spending $815 million dollars. The expenditures have to justify themselves regardless of how many times you slice the pie up in terms of cost. Current expenses should be paid with current income. One shouldn't go into long term debt to pay for lunch. Tourism? I voted for 4 of the bond issues.

Re: “Nook: Waiting Game

Sounds absolutely dreadful. Why subject yourself to such an experience. Another good reason to eat at home where I get good food properly served.
