Re: “UA Student Falls to Death on Campus Dorm

Tom F.: Your mean-spirited, malevolent , base comment that this young man was eliminated from the Human Population via Natural Selection; a result of your reactionary/ultra conservative notions of Social Darwinism is absurd!! Instead of reading "Natural Selection for Dummies" as your information source, I suggest that you enroll in a Biological Evolution course at the U of A.

This young man was 19 years old and made a fatal mistake. We all grieve with his Parents/Family/Friends, and Classmates .

Re: “Anti SB 1062 Fundraiser at JunXion Tonight

SB1062 is nothing more than a despicable attempt by a group of Senate Homophobic/Bigots to legalize their bigotry in the guise of "Religious Freedom". Not only should SB1062 be vetoed by the Governor, but its' supporters voted out of the Arizona Senate as being incapable of representing the diversity inherent in their constituency.

Re: “Pima County School Superintendent on Anonymous Hernandez Flier: "The Individuals Who Have Committed These Acts Need To Be Held Accountable"

Before this matter goes any further, it would be advisable for those responsible for these attacks on Mr. Hernandez, to identify themselves, admit that what they did was wrong and hateful, and issue a public apology to Mr. Hernandez and the Gay Community.
