I emigrated from New England to Rio Rico, 15 years ago this past June. I deliberately chose a location near the border with Mexico. That's… More »

Anybody else here feeling compassion for CW13?

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

I think, McLaury, you may have skipped 4th grade. That's when we all learned the meaning of "it's."

Which is the contraction of "It is."

You used "it's" when you meant to use "its."

Shame on you...

Re: “Just When You Thought Crazyland Was Less Crazy: SB 1062 Part II?

Would any perceptive reader here be shocked to learn that Rick Jason might possibly be that overweight, aging, and quite possibly, closeted, but definitely frustrated homosexual that's been hanging around the downtown bus terminal?

Didn't think so...

Re: “Today: "Borderland" Screening and Q&A with Al Jazeera America Producer

This is a great documentary. Truly unbiased.

As are all of what Al Jazeera does.

Unlike what the NY Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and the AZ Republic do.

Worth watching, IMHO.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Barber on "Outrageous" Cost of Ajo Homes for Border Patrol: "This Type of Spending Is Irresponsible"

@cascabel:

Decent enough point you make here.

But I wouldn't blame Rep. Barber, because he's only been in office for, what? Less than a year?

Meanwhile, if you really want to see how Homeland Security keeps spending its Federal bucks, without oversight, please do check out the $1,000,000 tent it built to shelter its agents at its checkpoint on !-19 located just a bit north of Tubac.

Which is a totally useless checkpoint that has reduced my property values here in Rio Rico by at least 25%.

I know this as a fact.

A neighbor of mine, recently tried to sell her very pretty home.

She posted her listing on the Internet and got many responses. And, even, some good offers.

But when those potential buyers crossed back north on I-19 and encountered the BP's checkpoint, they lost interest.

"No way, will I ever live in what seems to have become a police state," one of those potential buyers emailed her.

Which is a police state that is surely and steadily, creeping up your way, Cascabel.

You can count on that...

@Kimberly Clark:

$600,000 apiece in Ajo is reasonable?

Are you joking?

If facts interest you at all, you might like to check out these Ajo real estate listings: http://www.trulia.com/AZ/Ajo/

Re: “There Are Photos From the Underwear Party Online

@Mike: "Facebook is for losers," you say?

Not so sure of that: my shares just appreciated in value 30% during the past 6 trading sessions.

But if you know of a better "loser" than FB, I'm all ears...
