Would it not be better to find out what brand (Maui Wowie, etc.) they are smoking to come up with those beliefs and how much they have to smoke to come to agreement?
Arizona is hot? A Dry Heat? Just practicing heating up for GLOBAL warming, getting practice avoiding sunlight hours and managing power consumption for air conditioners which now cost as much in summer and do stoves and furnaces in wintery Wisconsin.
Racists? Remember, Tucson was not chosen as the state capitol because it had opted to join the confederacy. The desegregation of TUSD schools is still an ongoing problem. Sheriff Joe may be the personification of mindless racism -- but Tucson's sub-rosa systematic abuse of its minority citizens is blurrier. but there.
Conservative -- the definition of conservative has become so skewed and over-used it is a label that almost has no meaning. We are a state that elected the Mo Udahl, Janet Napolitano and Raul Grijalva -- and our gun laws are the most progressive in the nation -- dangerous, yes, conservative, no.
Crazy - Well there is the thing about mad dogs and Englishmen in the sun.......but my heritage is Polish.
I would support a comparative religion course in High School -- which includes Bible, Koran, Upanishads, Book of Mormon and of course Dianetics. Any one by itself attacks the wall between church and state that has allowed the USA to be open to many points of view -- something not available in the Dark Ages -- where the population was only exposed to other religions and ideas at risk of life and limb.
Otherwise - this move is blatantly unconstitutional - a ruse dressed up to be as dangerous as the introduction of "Divine Design" as an alternative to evolution -- or the introduction of Alchemy as alternate or supplemental to chemistry and physics.
I started eating at Micha's MANY years ago -- before the bar and extra seating were added to accomodate patrons of this Tucson gem of Norteno Cuisine -- in a pleasant, economic and unpretentious setting.
When I say many yeaqrs ago -- I mean when I was editing newspapers that required me to be at a printing plant in South Tucson early in the morning -- so I would hit Micha's for some of the best Machaca and Eggs and/or Chorizo and eggs at the no longer extant breakfast counter with other journalists who used the counter as an informal answer to press club hangovers.
Most often lately as a retired persopn I get there for lunches when I go to the nearby VA hospital. The Machaca is still the most exceptional have had in my 69 years -- and their Albondigas is a tradition. It is almost impossible for a npormal person to finish their tasty Burros -- and their Chimis are always crisp and lite.
AND -- it is a family restaurant -- with prices moderate to low for the family. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE EQUATION -- is that the same family that established Michas is the same family (second and third generation) the runs it today. The wait staff DOES NOT MAKE YOU WAIT. Fast, attentive and efficient -- some of these folks have been working at Michas for more years that I can remember --- and have waited on me literally hundreds of times over the years.
BE AWARE -- that on Fridays there is sometimes a short wait to get a table for lunch -- but once inside everything makes up for the very few minute delay.
Eegees locally formulated and mixed frozen drinks are one good reason to stay in Tucson during the summer months.
But to me, their food is a reminder of why I do not like "fast food" on generic rolls without a variety of breads availlable -- and I find their portions small for the price. I would rather pay a little more for a better and more thoughfully tastie sandwich -- and even though they are a profit center --- their fries, while good, are supplied in small insifficent portions.
The Eegees tradition of a flavor of the month shows there is some thought in formulating their frozen specialty -- I just they would get around to backberry, rasberry and a few more "tart/sweet" formulas with a little more fequency -- particularly in the summer.
