Re: “City Council's Review of Tucson Police Department's Enforcement of SB 1070 Gets Pulled, May Happen in February

What a waste of police resources. 10,906 purposeless phone calls. Now...what about Pima County Sheriff's Dept.?

Re: “District Tavern to Close, Though It Isn’t Clear What Will Take the Longstanding Bar's Place

Well, that comment is certainly not ok, MsAzSunshine.

Re: “GRILL 1994-2011

I am fascinated by the story of the Kims. Can we please have an in-depth article on Wig-O-Rama? How on earth did a WIG STORE survive in downtown Tucson for so many years? What was really going on there?

Re: “Mexico, Muddled

By saying "The man behind the counter heaped...." without explaining that you chose those toppings does confuse the reader. Also, the passive voice in "The toppings for the chipotle chicken large included...." makes it sound like you didn't have any agency in choosing the toppings.

Since the customer can choose the toppings (including, apparently, the number of toppings?), maybe the issue was that you inadvertently chose poorly? I haven't eaten there, but it sounds like the problem could be mitigated by choosing fewer competing toppings.

Re: “Top Releases in '13

Half of the 14 releases? You're counting the compilations, where each band contributes a song, as a release that has a female contributor? That's a stretch.

I know you don't judge music by the gender of the artist. What I'm saying is that women artists are marketed less than male artists due to the systemic sexism in the industry. Even on the local level. So, because of that, yes, you have to make a special effort to look for bands with women rather than just listening to what comes your way.

Re: “Top Releases in '13

I figured I may have missed a few in the compilations. And I'm not saying you did this intentionally. But because of a sort of general societal sexism, sometimes you have to make a special effort to make sure and listen to bands that contain at least one woman.

Re: “Top Releases in '13

Geez, guys. Joshua Levine and Eric Swedlund don't show much love for female musicians. Josh has Monster Pussy (Marie DeGain) and Burning Palms (Julia DeConcini); Eric has Lovely Bad Things and Superchunk. That's four female musicians out of...how many? A lot.

In contrast, thanks, Sean Bottai, for recognizing female talent; indeed women are more than half the world's population.
