Wondering why nobody uses a real name in Tucson Weekly comments.

Re: “The Drumbeat Begins For Huppenthal To Resign

I may be the only supporter of Thucydides in Tucson, but calls for his resignation are premature. There are still citizens of Arizona who believe in hard work and personal responsibility.

Re: “Danehy

Senator Melvin might have a point about the flags. It's not scientific, but on my street three flags are flown every day. On holidays there are four. That's fewer than a third of the houses on the street, but Republicans live in every one. I have a Republican friend in another state who flies his flag every day (retired military). I'm guessing Melvin could be fairly accurate in his neighborhood conclusions.

Re: “The Epic Failure During the Opening Sochi 2014 Opening Ceremony

EPIC is not an appropriate word for a minor malfunction. Even the unopened snowflake was symbolic of the athletes themselves .... some perform spectacularly; some have unfortunate problems.

I love the Olympics - it's practically the only reason to own a television.

Re: “Grijalva Gets Disobedient, Arrested at Washington Immigration Rally

"Standing up for his constituents" .... the illegal immigrants who voted for him?

Re: “Redemption For Black Crown Coffee Co.

They're just down the street from my house. I usually make my coffee at home, but I think I'll stop in some day. Nice story!

Re: “A Conn. State Rep. Told Gabby Giffords to 'Stay Out' of Newtown

I'm surprised nobody mentioned how disgusted many Tucsonans were with the loud (cheering) political rally Obama held in our town after the shootings. It was attended by young Obamabots, some of whom got out of class for the day, and other unemployed supporters who stood in line for hours .... not to memorialize the victims, but to see and cheer for their hero Obama. Many of them probably didn't even know who Giffords was before the shooting, and the political event was totally inappropriate for the occasion.
