I lunched at Mama's with a friend several weeks ago. Just for baseline reference, we favor Sushi Cho, Miss Saigon and Los Portales. And we've both been to Hawaii. So, what did we think of Mama's?
We both detested it. Both lunch plates were awful - small portions of cheap ingredients cooked without talent. The sauce was just weird, it added nothing to the meal. The decor is like eating in a parking garage. The counter service is indifferent bordering on hostile. For the price you can eat (and eat well) in a real restaurant.
If you read this don't eat at Mama's, there's no reason to encourage these people to continue a culinary career.
Perhaps my previous comment was too analytical for general consumption, so let me simplify: each F35 will sound to listeners on the ground like a formation of NINE F-16C fighters flying overhead.

Mr Devine and Ms McKasson seriously understate the sound pressure levels of the F-35 vs F-16c. The correct DBA scale numerical increase denoting a doubling of sound pressure is 3, not 10. i/e. DBA 3 is twice the sound pressure of DBA 1, DBA 6 is twice the sound pressure of DBA3, DBA 9 is twice the sound pressure of DBA 6, and so forth and so on and on and on and on. See http://www.talentfactory.dk/en/tour/env/db… for a not-so-succinct summary of audio measurement.
Therefore their statement "Because an increase of 10 decibels basically equates to a doubling of sound, this comparison shows the F-35 being at least three times as loud as the F-16." is wildly incorrect and should read "Because an increase of 3 decibels basically equates to a doubling of sound, this comparison shows the F-35 being at least NINE times as loud as the F-16c" given identical airspeed and altitude.
Thank you for reading my correction, but surely the grandeur that is Tucson Weekly World Headquarters includes what are known in the better-heeled media calls"fact checkers."
