Re: “Book Fare

When you close a library you kill a little piece of democracy.

Re: “Hotel Congress Wins Best Breakfast Dish at the Arizona Foodist Awards

Lots of animal fat in that dish. Wish we could get some really good "healthy" plant foods on that list.

Re: “Yolanda in Limbo

"ICE was now required to incarcerate no fewer than 33,400 detainees each and every day. In 2014, Congress tweaked the number up yet again, pushing the mandate to an even 34,000, most of them in for-profit prisons."

This is truly a scam that the Congress has brought upon the people of AZ. And it clearly explains why the prisons want to make every Jose, Yolanda and Raul look like a criminal. There is way too much money in this prison business and the CEO's are laughing all the way to the back at the public's ignorance in understanding their scheme.

Re: “Unclear Resolution

These classes are "selective"which means no one is forced to take them. I agree that students need to learn about other cultures and this needs to be done in a critical-thinking type of endeavor. I think these classes, if done well, will help prepare students for college and the larger life. I applaud these TUSD teachers who are really putting their jobs on the line and teaching beyond the status-quo approach to education. We need more teachers like this who are willing to question the high and mighty authority of ADE.

Re: “No More AIMS; Diane Douglas Proposes "Thorough" Review of State Education Standards

But what is going to take its place and how do we know that the jack-off legislators will actually make decisions that are going to give teachers more autonomy in the classroom. Teachers are professionals and many of are highly trained with Master's degree and above. We need less authorizing and micro managing and more teacher decision-making in our schools.

Re: “Guest Opinion

I don't think spraying poison is ever a good idea to control weeds or pests or what have you. These chemicals are known to disrupt our bodies and cause problems for us (and other animals on the planet). All of this toxic stuff should be banned by the FDA, USDA, EPA and spraying it around Tucson is scary, scary business. Read more from Mother Jones:…
