Give them something to listen TOO, and they will and do!

Re: “Media Watch

John C. Scott has been a fixture in Tucson for many years. He SHOULD be included in a volume like this one!

Re: “Media Watch

RE: Journal Management change. Good move. (I hope they don't cut the man's PAY) Radio and TV are related, but very different media. One cannot really do his best work for both at the same time. One or the other will suffer.

And make no mistake. A manager who works at being a manager does a hard days work every day. There are folks in town who don't think so. They cut off their noses to spite their faces.

Re: “AZ Illustrated Politics: Downtown Hotel, Rosemont Mine & DREAMer Driver's Licenses

RE: Rosemant... Has anyone carried out the ultimate negative possibility? 30 years from now, give or take, the copper runs out. (It's been known to happen) And the American branch of the Canadian company running things throws in the towel, declaring 'bankruptcy'.

They have made this huge hole in our Dessert. They have left an enormous pile of tailings. Overall, a hazerdous situation. (Hole fills with water, kids fall in, kids climb the tailings piles and fall, ETC.) We ask them to take care of it. Their reply? 'Oh, WE'RE BANKRUPT! We can't fix that. Like to help you, but... Sorry'. Tough, eh?

Re: “One of the First Pressings of The Beatles' 'White Album' Is Up For Auction

I have a much later copy of the 'White Album' on white vinal. The music is good, no matter which particular set of the records you have!

Re: “Worst Western Ever?

I grew up with 'The Lone Ranger' on radio. I saw the TV series. The radio series was actually believable to the young mind,and is enjoyable today. The writing was fine, especially considering they did 3 half hour show a week. TV was a bit condecending, but acceptable. At least the main characters (The Ranger and Tonto) were portrayed consistently to the radio series, which was still on the air when the TV began.

This movie, however, is a travesty. Tonto was a respectable and respected man. He clung to his heiratage, but did it respectfully. The Ranger was a 100% believable charater, who respected everyone until they showed him they were not worthy of his respect. The movie seems to have been written by and for the Special Effects people, and needed no real scripting, except to tie the S.E. together. George Trendal (the creator of The Lone Ranger) would turn over in his grave. Hopefully this thing will be soon relegated to late night TV filler status, from there to be forgotten. 225 MILLION? Think of all the kids you could feed with that!
