Was going to try this place, but when I saw the menu and they charge $2 and $3 extra for a piece of gluten-free bread if you don't want the wheat bread, I realized the place must be run by an authenthic Paris frog.
Now you can get a frog rip-off without going to Paris.
If there were 16 slices of bread in a gluten free loaf, they are charging $48 extra for each loaf they sell at a $3 a slice.
Is this how you want to spend your money?

Greyhound rescue is something positive. Dog racing should be banned.
Do you really have to call it "Terror fest?' Hasn't Tucson gotten enough bad publicity for terror? Try a little common sense and find a better name.
And some of the band names are so over. Landmine Marathon? Death Kings? Destroy Her? Those names don't make me want to rush and hear these bands. The names are not creative, they are the opposite, and they are depressing. But with a name like Terror fest, what can one expect?
Just the name terror fest will put off a lot of people. Tucson is probably making a lame attempt to copy SouthbySouthwest in Austin, TX.
Tucson will never be Austin.
Only in Tucson!
Now, now girls, don't squabble.
We all liked Uncle Jeff's writing, it didn't matter if we liked him or not, or if we ever met him. It was enough to see his byline and know we were in for some entertaining writing. Writers are known by their words, not by their personalities. We don't want them for friends anyway, we want them to entertain us with their writing talent. Jeff had plenty of that.
Now we won't ever see his byline again. This is the news here, not whether we liked his difficult personality. He didn't want to be Miss Mary Sunshine, he wanted to say and write what he thought. How many people do you know who dare do that?
I hope smoking weed is not what robbed jammerk65's ability to spell. His comment here was meant to be amusing I hope, and he is not really semi-illiterate from weed.
Dan, I am sad to read your news that the fine writer, Jeff Smith, has passed away. I am a writer and I saved a thick file of his articles through the years. My favorites are his humor articles when he wrote as a woman, complete with frumpy dress and boa, under the name of Wanda Johnson I believe it was.
We emailed many times years ago, his email address was Jeffyboy, and then he stopped and i wondered if he was sick. I never phoned him to find out. His work disappeared and editors he had worked for told me he was too difficult to deal with. A motor cycle accident decades ago that put him in a wheelchair may have had a lot to do with his disposition. His talent was
large and I am sure his fans wish he had written more.
Now most media is politically correct and boring. Jeff's writing was never boring. And rarely politically correct.

Republicans are right-wing nut Christian fanatics filled with hate for women. If you have seen one of their leaders in Texas, Dan Patrick, he looks evil and appears to be about to foam at the mouth with the rabid hatred he spews. He also has a radio station to blather his madness. You can look at Gov. Ricky Perry and see he is a dim bulb. Ignorance worked for Gov. George Bush. Bush became president and Patrick may have ambitions to get into the White House on the backs of the lunatic fringe. It won't happen. It didn't happen for Romney. Or Palin.
But these dim bulbs are united in greed and their desire to return to the Dark Ages.
I hope Texas women and men who love them will remain united and vocal against these men. Writer Molly Ivins told us to be vocal and non-violent. She urged us to laugh in the faces of these fascists. Do not give these men legitimacy by listening to their vitriol and obeying their commands. She said to make noise, to beat pots and pans and yell if we have to, laugh at these evil men, make fun of them, and expose them for what they are-out of touch with reality of what people want.
Republicans must be stopped at the local level. Rational, vocal people can make that happen. And Democrat politicians need to remember what Democrats stand for and stop lying to us and stop doing the bidding of lobobyists and big corporations now running and ruining our government.
It will be a big job to accomplish. On the local level many victories can be won to return the government to the people. Removal and resistance is a good start. We can all do our part, we can stop the stealing of our government and our rights.
That is our only hope, after all, we are We The People.
Make some noise, beat some pots and pans, organize.
