beautiful; however, our showoff woodpecker has never left us - we have them every day for the last two months. seriously, they (?) have two young ones with them now. Yaik, Yak, Yak they go all day.
Thank you, Raul Grijalva, for speaking out - for speaking the truth and questioning the advisability of Salazar's and our government's response to this catastrophe. We have been here nine years, met you only once, but look to your advice and comments readily and we'll support you in any way we can. The truth and logic is something many people in this state have not been able to recognize.
thank you Jordan for speaking out. you look great and it sounds like you did a wonderful job in speaking out. we hope you and your school administrators and teachers can do something to hold on to your precious school that has been here for so many years.
we wish you well - only wish there would be something we can do besides write to our legislators who are not as grown up as you are.

Next time you hear the earth-shaking, ear-splitting noise from one of the F-16s or F22s from Tucson’s Davis-Monthan airbase, look up and consider that the newest Air Force plane will make four times that amount of noise. Notice the full complement of armaments strapped to the underside of that plane, all of them armed, some of them nuclear-tipped, and all capable of reducing much of Tucson to a large hole in the ground. These flights are accidents waiting to happen, as has occurred before in the DM flight path, and which will occur again.
A matter completely avoided in the discussion of why these planes don’t belong in Tucson is the notoriety this country has gained in this century for its strategy of pre-emptive strikes. This country is viewed as inherently hostile by most of world. Likewise, never discussed is the Electronic Order of Battle (EOB). EOB kicks in when thresholds of defense tolerance are exceeded: EOB cannot be modified or halted. It has the precise coordinates of Tucson, AZ entered on certain ICBMs. Ask any retired spy. Combine that atmosphere of hostility with the ability to trigger automatic nuclear warfare, and you have the frightening possibility of nuclear holocaust.
These facts are not lost on America’s enemies. Tucson’s name is written on ICBMs in Russia, China, and presumed allies in the Mid East. Because of Davis-Monthan, Tucson is a powerful magnet for nuclear exchange. I for one do not want to be held nuclear hostage – nor do I want my family similarly held – to whatever the latest version of Dr. Strangelove may be.
STOP THE NOISE – CLOSE THE BASE!
