I never have a problem at the checkpoint, but I'm an old white guy. It just seems like a big waste of money when there are so many other places money is needed in this country: education for example.
We have been exploiting cheap labor abroad for years by shopping at big box stores, so exploiting cheap labor right here at home isn't a big jump of the imagination. Just stop doing it and it will all go away. These days that means don't buy just about anything so perhaps a reasonable immigration/work program is in order. Yes?
As a snowbird wannabe from Alaska, I read it not only for the individual articles, but also for the over all "feel" of what's happening in Tucson. The tone of the paper seems to change as the mood changes in Tucson, so that gives me and idea of how things are going in general.
It is also the instrument I use to show people with wrinkled noses why I chose the Tucson area (I live in Arivaca). To wit, I rented an apartment up on 1st and River for a couple of months so I could *do* some of the stuff you write about without having to drive an hour home at night after a concert or dinner and drinks. It was a hoot and no DUI's.
My favorite? Tough to say, but I've always loved those scathing movie reviews. Thanks TW.
Patricia Nelson Limerick heralded, although not individually, the women of the west in her books "The Legacy of Conquest: The Unbroken Past of the American West" and Something in the Soil: Legacies and Reckonings in the New West. Good reading and sets the record straight.
Where can I find this "video"?
