Bridging the gap between the sensibilities of a Tucson audience and the portrayal of real life drama happening only a few miles to our south through theater, is a supremely daunting task. These plays make an heroic attempt to widen our view. I am very proud of our efforts. These plays , I believe, motivate an audience to know and understand more. - Jim Klingenfus, Sound Designer.
"Precede" not "proceed." You're welcome.
"... the event was no longer able to remain at Reid Park." Why was that?
This is another proposal to give away our retirement plans to Wall Street, where they can gamble with our money. It is an insidious effort to undermine current retirees security, under the lie that it "only applies to new employees." The fact is, the new employees help to sustain the current retirees, just as I paid to sustain them during my working years. The "privatize everything" philospohy is a false, cynical and immoral strategy to further eliminate the middle class and turn us into a nation of serfs.
One big problem: Early in the Rio Nuevo process, there was active talk of creating a proper town square-Museum Row- with a festival area to accommodate the growth and popularity of events like All Souls, Meet Yourself, Folk Festival, El Tour, 4th of July etc. That is all gone now, as plans are being made based only on how much money the land can make. I am deeply concerned that no thought is being given to how these signature events, and the tourism dollars they bring, will thrive in the future.
So when is some genius going to put in a bodega downtown for all those stranded students?
The bus station is not a destination. It is a transfer point. It is a waste of property that could be something useful. Most people going downtown (by bus as a destination) get off at the La Placita stop or the Alameda stop. Get your facts straight. I'm all for left leaning casues, but you're barking up the wrong tree here.
