Yes, Kelly planned his escape into stardom really well, except that his wife was shot by a lunatic and he will be responsible for her care and comfort for the rest of her life. And you really want to criticize Gabby for waiting to receive a pension when she will never be able to work again? I think you can do better than that.
There is a command in InDesign that uses the m key. I've accidentally added "m" to documents by mistyping this command. As you said, mistakes happen. I agree that the Weekly is remarkably well-edited, particularly given today's rip and post editorial environment. You can't read a single article in Salon without seeing a typo, and even the vaunted NYT has had some significant bloopers on their website. I forgive you.
Luke, fair enough.
I'm being selfish: I'd like to have one elected official representing my interests, who listens to his/her constituents and does what s/he thinks is in our interests. Gabby did that. Our two illustrious senators could care less.
I hope that Tucson Weekly will keep a close eye on the local congressional races. But please, whenever you write about this district, make clear to your readers that there are two races, running essentially concurrently, for two slightly different districts.
Ron Barber is, thus far, running only for the remainder of Congresswoman Giffords' term, which expires in January 2013. The announced Republican candidates are presumably running in both primaries. Matt Heinz and the other likely candidates for the new district, are leaving the remaining term race to Barber.
It's important to write about this clearly and repeatedly because even pretty sophisticated voters are confused about this.
By the way, I agree with you about the missed photo op. You might do some reporting and find out why there wasn't a candidate endorsement by Congresswoman Giffords as a part of her resignation announcement.
You only left one out: shooting.
