Jim brings intelligent, balanced, journalism to talk radio that encourages the public to not only open their minds but the speak them as well. Way to go Jim...Kass and Scott are the icing on the cake.
Thank you for expanding my mind as well as lending the seeds to spirited, intellectual conversations with my boyfriend.
I helped run a small plumbing company for over 10yrs. The ties between small companies and suppliers was tight. We had to be. The same goes for Tucson restaurants.
I've been here since 1985 and one by one have seen small, locally owned businesses shut down as "big box" stores infiltrated the market. Point in fact...Borders Books (now defunct) and Barnes and Noble, forced the closure of not only many privately owned book stores but music stores as well.
Blockbuster and Hollywood video stores ( which I believe have at least closed their physical locations) marked the end of the neighborhood video store. Thank God for Casa Video.
The City of Tucson can't seem to learn from their previous mistakes...and i doubt they ever will.
City practices towards small, locally owned businesses is a death nell for us all. It is truly a shame.
Alas, the lady, she doth protest too much. In a nutshell folks...keep it local.
I agree MJS .That's a good start. Tucson has so many diverse cultures.. The food trucks alone offer a fantastic look into Tucson's diversity.
Tucson is also a town of relocated refugees from all over the world.
The music and art scene is second to none compared to many cities across the contry.
Keep it midtown and downtown.
This is the Tucson I know and love.
This is hysterical. Thanks for giving me a good laugh first thing in the morning.
10yrs, eh? That will be the longest decade of his life....unless he starts pleading to God to die in the next couple years....
Kwasman is in what is called the classic "denial" stage. I'm sorry for him and those that love and care for him. The stress of running for office again can easily trigger and speed up the course of his cancer.
His family needs to wake up and give him a "pork chop" upside the head! He can accomplish so much more on behalf of "his people" in the private sector.
Mr. Kwasman...it's time to stop being selfish, think of your Family and those who care about you and step down from the campaign. You're in the "run" of your life right now.
Oye'! I wonder if Chuck still has that third fist in his carefully colored hair...NRA can't seem to find a celebrity sponsor under the age of 70....(well, I'm not sure how old Ted Nugent is but at least he prefers fishing with crossbows).
Way to go Jim! Been following your career for almost 20 yrs now from when I worked w/you in the mid 90s through today.
The best part has been watching you on the "Roundtable" from it's fledgling inception to you anchoring and mediating one of the best programs regarding current political/ social issues effecting Tucson and the state of AZ. Thank you for showing one need not shout, insult and slander another but have well guided intellectual discourse instead.
I bet you still hate wearing a jacket and tie...
