Re: “Avatar

Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.

This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.

Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.

Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!

Re: “TUSD Superintendent Firing Update: Nothing To See Here, Folks (For Now).

I have been to a few school board meetings and heard them discuss agenda items that had actual little kids and educational programs under careful discussion: just a boring but productive recollection that has no relevant connection with the current reality. Some commenters here write like they want to hurt somebody, at the least.

Re: “TUSD Board Meeting Scheduled For Tuesday, Feb. 21. Only One Item on the Agenda

Deja vu. Bash and crash the TUSD superintendent. Then hire another. Bash and crash. Then another one. Repeat process ad nauseum to the satisfaction of ornery ignorant people with nothing good to say about anybody.

Re: “Editor's Note

I too recall going to an event at Saguaro HS many years ago. It was packed. It was hard on the folks on stage, but they could take it. I would go again. Rep. McSally is in my voting district She should go too. I get her newsletter, but it is not enough. Any upcoming event should be advertised well and in advance.

Re: “The Skinny

Yes, the entire legal system. Respect starts at the top, not at our level. Trump has been shouting down judges and ridiculing decisions for years. Defend Trump all you want, but he has no keen legal mind, just self-interest. And, due to his appointment authority, he can now test the integrity of the system and cause trouble from initial action upwards as appeals rise to the top (which he also will be able to appoint). There has as yet been no indication that Trump will not continue to harass judges and call for rulings in his favor before the judges can carefully and correctly decide the merits. We can hope they all stay independent, but the system is already suspect due to you-know-who.
Don't usually send links, but this new one from AP is called "Trump's tweets could make life tough for federal lawyers ".…

Re: “The Skinny

Even a rose bush can understand WHY Trump keeps going after politicians (both parties), celebrities, reporters, congress (both houses) and, sooner or later, other world leaders. It must really feel good. But there is something basically bad and even indefensible about constantly challenging the integrity of our entire legal system, threatening specific judges and intentionally prejudicing court cases long before actual decisions are made. It pushes the whole process behind police arrests and jury trials into a constitutional red zone, less access to justice for most of us and more abuse and disrespect by felons and crooks and anyone up for gaming the system.

Re: “The Skinny

Muslims are not Mexicans.
When I read (NYT with interviews/quotes) that rich California farmers who voted for Trump are losing their workers I have trouble matching politics with having food on the table: you cannot pay Americans enough to get out in those fields.
There is a need for vigilance, not threats and violence, implied or actual.
There is a need for steady leadership, not strange Twitter revenge rants threatening our legal system.
How long can anyone maintain this pace in what could be the most stressful job in the world??
When this president melts down, we could all be in for a very rough ride.
