Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

I'm an army brat and I spent 4 years in Iran so for me this place is comfort food. I haven't found a place in Tucson that does Iranian food well. There is nothing quite like their spices like sumak or saffron infused rice and the various kabob dishes. I was taking a trip down memory lane here. The owner was very friendly with us and the waitress was on top of everything. I don't get the negative reviews above. I found the meal great and the portions were huge.

Re: “Porn Plot Halted at Area High School

What I don't get is that the music industry has far more racier lyrics and activity than this bit of writing. I heard Robin Thick singing the following: "I have big dick for ya." you know you want it" Today. I was a bit surprised that he said that.. but after what he did with Miley C, I guess anything goes on the music stage. Why do books go under such scrutiny while Hollywood and music get away with porn in song and video????

Re: “A Note To the 'Keep Tucson Shitty' Crowd: You're the Problem

I remember pre grille Congress. I was shocked to see the view laid out in front of me as I trekked down 4th avenue yesterday. Suddenly there is this very stark structure that has a prison like feel sticking up above the underpass. It has no real artistic architecture... just lines of windows on white. It's a shame we didn't really restore the buildings of the past. Instead we succumbed to the progress seeking soul suckers who say that over used misnomer "Progress" as though it's something that has to happen. They say to hell with anyone else who wants to be avant guarde or maintain some semblance of the Tucson soul. I agree the more recent incarnation of the grille was really funky and was going down fast.... but please maintain some of the charm and decor of Tucson's past. We don't have to be so freaking trendy and conformist for god sake and for arts sake. I say we allow for the uniqueness of the old beauty to show up just as much as this bland stark californicated style,that pushes it's way in with pomp lacking circumstance. Shitty is in the mind of the beholder.

Re: “The Rumors Are True: Pizzeria Bianco Is Opening In Downtown Tucson

I would like to see Tucson retro remain rather than metro gain.

Re: “For the Masses

@ Thomas I have been to some of the places you mentioned and have found the best sushi here in Tucson. I have found some good places here but do agree to a point the service is very lacking. I recently went to a new place called the Wild Garlic Grille that is presenting as an upscale lunch and dinner place. I found a hair on my stale fondue bread and showed the waitress and she just said sorry. I was disgusted. I found the food mediocre at best. I will give the benefit of the doubt as a bad day perhaps but I am reluctant to return. I do think there are a few fine restaurants but for the most part Tucson could improve.

Re: “Mark Kelly to Jared Loughner: "You Tried To Create For All of Us a World As Dark and Evil As Your Own. But Know This, And Remember It Always: You Failed"

@ Robert F. Spinasanto... first waco is a town in Texas. Second how can you be pro-life in one line and turn around and demand horrible death in another. Loughner was mentally ill. Schizophrenics are not able to control their violent impulses often. I know I worked with them for years. What I can say is this, your little diatribe was far more frightening to me because you just have a clear double standard and warped ideology... and in my book that is Whacko!

Re: “Mark Kelly to Jared Loughner: "You Tried To Create For All of Us a World As Dark and Evil As Your Own. But Know This, And Remember It Always: You Failed"

I do appreciate and agree with some of what was written here. I feel the passion and pain in all of it. I knew Phyllis Schneck, Yet, Since I don't know how Loughner has responded to what happened,( and I find it disconcerting that it's has been unusually kept hush hush) But, I think shaming him doesn't do any good, since I worked in mental health for 20 years I knew to always separate out the person from the behavior.
I think it's wrong to shame or overly guilt trip Loughner and hold him as the main responsible party. I do think it's partly the system, the total lack of regulation on guns, and the community agencies such as campus police who should be much more mindful and or educated when mental illness presents itself in the community. Surely his parents knew he had mental health issues, and surely they could have gotten help at the first sign of decompensation in his mental state. This question still bothers me to this day why didn't they call the cops when Loughner ran out into the desert with the black bag? Clearly his father knew something was up with him. I want to know why he didn't get his son help or be held accountable for neglect of his sons need for medication. I am glad that some of this was directed at Jan Brewer because she showed one insensitivity after another during this whole tragedy. I also felt her acting as though she was close to Gabby when interviewed smacked of photo opp. I just say we look at what went wrong and fix it. This kid was clearly not in his right mind. As a society/community we must begin to look at how to solve rather than blame. Learn to have compassion and forgiveness too.
