Count your blessings, tucsonenses. I recently moved to Colorado Springs where people will swear that such-and-such place has "great margaritas!" and then when you get there, the bartender pulls out the MARGARITA MIX.
Don't even get me started on the salsa.
Gee, it's so easy to romanticize blowing people up when it's not going to happen in your backyard.
Gee, I'm shocked Vic would want to defend acting like a jerk in the workplace.
He doesn't even address the whole "Uh..1/4?" drivel. Just all- around embarrassing. Is it too much to ask that school board members have AT LEAST the level of education required of the teachers they allegedly lead (and in Hicks' case, have the nerve to call for the wholesale firing of?)
@Dan Gibson: I don't think it's a strange argument, or at least I'm seeing it with dreary regularity. Republicans (especially the less moderate/Tea Party types) have a HUGE persecution complex. It's what leads to their incessant whining about a) the liberal media b) attacks on Christianity and c) attacks on straight white males, all of which they do in apparent utter seriousness, all years and years of historical evidence to the contrary.
You left out one of the major points of the article... that to keep his ex from going forward with this expose of his personal life, Babeau and his attorney threatened him with deportation. His sexual orientation is a non-story as far as I'm concerned...it's how far he'll go to cover it up as well as his lack of judgement in other areas of his personal and professional life that's the issue here.
Morales gets facts wrong on a fairly regular basis when it suits his argument/purpose (one incident comes to mind, when he stated that a hispanic surname was the second most common on the Vietnam memorial, misrepresenting a researcher he was quoting. When his error in understanding the quote was pointed out to him, he began banning commentators. Actually, banning is a ploy he resorts to often when commentators point out factual inaccuracies in his writing, whether the disagreement is phrased civilly or not.)
