Re: “A Libertarian View on Pima County's World View Deal

You can learn more about World View and the county's agreement with the company here:

And Mr. Brooks, the segment of Broadway between Camino Seco and Harrison is in the city of Tucson. In fact, no part of Broadway outside the Tucson city limits.

Re: “NIMB (Not In My Budget) Is the New NIMBY

It's $15.8 million. The Star got the amount wrong in the headline.

Re: “Judge Denies Team McSally's Motion, Allows Vote Count To Continue in Hotly Contested Barber-McSally Race

Moderate McSally Supporter - The Recorder validated 9,355 provisional ballots out of 10,102 checked. The number you quoted above - 9,930 - is the provisional ballots turned over to Elections, which includes ballots that were found to be invalid. Elections only counts the ballots determined to be valid. None of this happens behind closed doors or in smoky rooms. All ballot processing, either by the Recorder or at Elections is done under the direct observation of representatives of both political parties.

All destinations are final, ergo "final destination" is redundant.

Re: “Is Tucson Getting Better or Worse?

This whole debate is pointless. Businesses open, businesses close. Owners get tired and sell, some owners die and the family sells. Some owners take the developers' money and buy a house in Oro Valley. Developers tear down old and build new. Demographics change, politics of cities change. People move out. New people move in. The culture changes.
Deal with it.
I grew up in Phoenix. I used to cruise Metro Center Parkway. Now Metro Center is a wasteland. I used to get staggering drunk at the Dash Inn on Apache. Now the Dash Inn is ASU student housing. North Scottsdale Road used to be expensive car dealerships and swanky restaurants. Now its strip joints and skeezy nightclubs owned by porn stars where drunk girls get their pictures taken in various states of undress which then get posted on The Dirty.
If you're consumed with nostalgia for the good ol' days of Tucson, get some friends together and buy your favorite hangouts and keep them as shitty as you want.
Otherwise, quityerbitchin.
