Some people throw beer cans out of the windows of their cars. Some people pick them up. That's the Rosemont argument in a nutshell. I'm proud to want to keep the land alive, even if some asshole wants to spoil it. You?
Great moral analysis, Councilman. If we can't even show compassion to little children, then what are we good for?
I happened to be in the John C. Scott Show studio during that interview. As you can imagine, jaws were dropping, and chins were on the table, mine especially. He kept referring to his comments as "posts," as if they were original content.
You didn't mention his flip-flop on Common Core. Huppenthal said there are two kinds of Common Core -- the one he is for and the one he is against. No kidding.
Sounds like the for-profit school community got caught word bending like Republicans -- and supporters of profit schools aren't happy about it.
No, its Republicans.
Only someone who has been duped out of expecting services in return for taxes could be convinced otherwise. But once you've crossed that rubicon, all manner of foolish self delusion is possible.
Tucson's problems are two:
1. Reduced lighting for dark skies (which has other significant benefits.)
2. A pedestrian reliance on the failed idea that cars will yield with higher accuracy than is humanely likely.
All humans make mistakes and most all crashes happen when two make a judgement error in the same space.
Unfortunately, when one is walking, the crash is likely to be fatal. No one runs down a pedestrian on purpose. Still, never assume a driver sees you and will stop simply because you step in front of him.
Every time my wife and I fly in from DC, we have a good laugh about what you call Rush Hour. Every time.
Oh, and I'd rather be living where you live. But I would stay in DC before I'd ever live in Phoenix again.
