Re: “The Skinny

"40+ years of Democratic control," unless you count 1991-1996, when the board was controlled by Republicans.

Re: “Cicero, Roman Statesman and Orator: Born, 106 BC. Alive, 1965 AD?

There must be a way to blame this on immigrants.

Re: “What Tucson-area School Districts, and BASIS, Spend on Administration

Actually, Ms. Allen, charter schools cite what they call inequities in the funding formula and decry the district schools ability to leverage resources through bonds and overrides as unfair, then ask the legislature for more money to make up the difference. It seems a little disingenuous for them to argue that they provide better value for the state's education dollars on the one hand, but then turn around and say that they do not have enough money to do their jobs.

Re: “Defending the Union

Barbara,

My book is specifically about a battalion of Mexican-Americans from California, so I do not discuss the other units of Spanish-speaking Union volunteers from Arizona, New Mexico or Texas except to mention where they crossed paths. A writer from Texas named Jerry D. Thompson has written extensively about the involvement of Mexican-Americans on both sides of the Civil War in his state. You might want to look for a book he wrote called Vaqueros in Blue and Gray.

Re: “Ask A Mexican!

Bslap: As a guy who once had a job where I got letters from the public all the time, I can confirm that there really are folks who think this way and write letters like this.

Re: “Here's an Article About Chimichangas Designed to Make You Angry

Has Young Martin Cizmar ever been in Tucson? Everything I remember him writing about Tucson and our music scene back when he was at The New Times was dismissive and ignorant.
