Agree that it is a great addition to the Oro Valley restaurant scene. My son-in-law visited from Cambridge MA over the holidays and felt it was a real find. He brews beer at a place called John Harvard's ( yeah it is near the University by the same name) . Lot of great beers and an incredible variety of west-of -the-Mississippi local brews. Food is good brew pub snack food . Not sure what a gastro-pub is, but sense the taste/variety fell a bit short. But this is a place about the 100 + beers, not the food.
Seems like legalization would get both Republican and Democrat support. Republicans can cash in on the growth ( I'm sure the cigarette companies are raring to go) and the Democrats would enjoy the product. Then we could drop the medicinal fig leaf.
Ted Cruz took a high risk strategy that may actually pay off. He said that Obamacare was so flawed , mis-managed and expensive that it should be scrapped. And being in the minority party in the Senate, he had to take measures that the " club" wouldn't like. Given the problems with Obamacare....failed web site, dropped insurance coverage, punitive premiums for young and healthy, MD's going concierge, etc... he may turn out to be very prescient. His approval levels in Texas are up and for a Texas senator, that's all that counts.
Surprising since AZ doesn't have oil and gas drilling since those activities drive job growth in Texas. I doubt that solar or wind have the same sort of employment opportunities. Especially if the Feds cut subsidies to pay for Obamacare. Would be interested to see if AZ has benefitted from the " California diaspora" like Texas has. Austin Tx has a ton of new tech jobs from companies ( like Apple) who decided that being near the Pacific Ocean wasn't worth the expense in mega benefits and restrictions.
We'll really miss the parco frito ( sorry if I miss spelled it). Whole fish scored and fried. Usually enough to serve 2 or 3 people. It will be missed.
Just curious. Were these folks collecting welfare, WIC, child care, SNAP etc money ? In other words was the tax payer paying for their unusual approach to parent-hood ? And if they were, don't they have to see some sort of case worker or something to get their largess ? Sounds like this is as much a gov't problem as a study in depravity.
Just curious. Is this a function of high unemployment and a virtually non existent manufacturing base ? People who don't have jobs don't commute and burn fuel. Colleges, hospitals, and golf resorts ( big industries here) don't have smoke stacks. While we don't have much pollution, we also don't have a very high average wage.
Uh... There are mentally challenged people who shouldn't be on the streets. Unfortunately, they are because some credentialed people a few decades ago thought that psychotropic drugs would solve it all. They were wrong. These folks use guns, or whatever weapon is handy, to workout their problems. Both Laughner and Adam Lanza had fantasizes about driving a car at high speed into their victims. If guns weren't available, they could have found an alternative.
So it is about the killers.... Not their killing tactics. Get the killers off the street and there will be less killing . It worked before...no reason to think it won't work now.
