Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

As bad a mistake as this is, they shouldn't lose all access to their child, given how young she is. Probation, a hefty fine and community service would be a fit sentence, so long as they identify their dealer to authorities. The dealers are the ones who belong in prison, not the dumb d-bags who buy from them.

Re: “Something Pro-Education-Funding Folks Agree on, Whether They're For or Against Prop 123

Right-wing conservative politicians are easy to understand: They are all about rewarding their friends (tax cuts for the rich), and punishing their perceived enemies (unions, especially teacher's unions, and educators in general). This is why we have seen continually diminishing funding for the public schools and universities. Republicans know that the overwhelming majority of school and university employees support Democrats. Therefore, according to their logic, why should they give them any more funding than they are required to by law? Also, why not use legislative and accounting tricks to choke off existing funding streams?
Their long-term strategy is clear: They want to discourage as many Democrats/progressives as possible from even residing in Arizona. That will eventually make Arizona essentially a one-party state, in the mold of Utah, if they enjoy continued success at the ballot box.

Re: “Zona Politics: A Prop 123 Debate and a Review of the Legislative Session

The fact that Doofus Doug Ducey and Fred "DINO" DuVal are both in favor of Prop. 123 should make the decision on how to vote on this VERY easy.

Re: “Kromko Terminates Robocop: Red Light Cameras Deactived

Who will benefit from the outcome of the rejection of the red-light cameras?
Auto body shops - from the increase in wrecked vehicles once the collision rate returns to the pre-camera era; douchebag drivers - who will resume running red lights, mostly with impunity; and, uh...well, that's about it.
Emergency rooms will also see an increase in patients from the likely increase in traffic collisions, but I doubt they would consider that a benefit.

Re: “In the Wake of Voter Rejection of Bond Package, Tucson Mayor Rothschild Says City May Need To Go It Alone

Who will benefit from the outcome of the rejection of the bonds and the red-light cameras?

Re: “In the Wake of Voter Rejection of Bond Package, Tucson Mayor Rothschild Says City May Need To Go It Alone

The main reason the bonds were rejected is that the people who voted against them don't understand economics. The avg. property tax bill for homeowners would have risen only $1.50 per month. That's not even enough for a cup of coffee.

Re: “A Note To the 'Keep Tucson Shitty' Crowd: You're the Problem

Instead of the s-word, a better and more illuminating adjective to use would be "unpretentious." Life in this town sucks, to some degree, and to pretend otherwise is to adopt the Phoenix mindset.
