It would be nice if El Molinito salsa was able to be purchased nationwide, because the stuff most of the nation considers salsa is either tomato paste or some terrible attempt at making a fruit salad. (Yes, Rosa's and a dozen other places also have great salsa, but I'd guess if someone was going to go wholesale, it would be ElMo's.)
Here are some datasets from 2011. You can play around with different drugs, gender, race and more to see who is using legal and illegal drugs. Whites are almost twice as likely to have used cocaine, and when you see how many more white people there are, a little math might lead someone versed in mathematical arts to conclude that white people either get a lot of free blow or that they contribute more money to that segment of the black market.
White people finance the drug problems in Mexico. If you want to place blame for the cartels and the killings and the fact that working immigrants can't come here without being part of the drug trade or they get killed, blame the white people who snort, smoke, and inject the vast majority of the drugs that cross that border.
(I say legalize it and take away the black markets and the criminality, but until then I say: own your shit, white people.)
We should have a sign at the city limits saying "Endorsed by Peter Griffin". Why? Because we have a sense of humor, that's why! We're Hamlet 2's place where dreams go to die! We're whatever that forgettable vaguely sci-fi movie with the elevators says we are! And we don't have to care, because... we're Tucson, that's why! Whether we're trying to spruce ourselves up or Keep Tucson Shitty, we're too busy enjoying doing not much to care what a guy who has recycled his own sitcom idea three times thinks about us.
Meanwhile, there are dozens of cities across the country wishing they had that kind of attention. We should run with it: "Welcome to Tucson, Endorsed by Peter Griffin" with his smiling face (including his scrotum chin) could give anyone a smile.
Question: why are the police in riot gear not able to be individually identified? Is it part of the design? And is it a feature or a bug?
The bill also affects jails and juvenile facilities, meaning that older jails can't be replaced easily and that facilities can't grow fast enough if the community grows as well. So would a county stop issuing building permits to a 2% increase annually as well? It would be a good idea.
Do the homebuilders know about this? Are they going to want to build homes where counties will have to release jail inmates early because of overcrowding? Does anyone want to live in such a place?
Dikes? I can go further and say I'm in favor of all forms of defensive embankments, whether for noise-abatement or weather-related protection.
