I don't believe that Tucson has not gotten lighter. I moved into my house 20 years ago and could see the Milky Way at night. Now it is hardly visible. I wonder if it has anything to do with the two very well lit Walmart parking lots that have been built within one mile of each other (a Neighborhood Market and Super Walmart)? Having high velocity lights on tall poles spreads too much light and allows it to escape upward. Having shorter poles - 8 to 10 feet - closer together prevents light from escaping upward and lights the parking lot better. Kudos to Lowes, which is right next to Walmart, because they turn off their lights at 11 p.m.
They will probably somehow mess up this obscene opportunity because they are so stupid.
I am so sick of seeing John McCain being interviewed on TV. He is a media whore whose "outrage" panders to the lowest of the low. Other senators are too busy - but reporters can always count on good ole John to come through with anything anti-Obama/Dems/etc. I think his office staff is sick of him too and send him out to work the halls where reporters lurk, just so they can get work done. John, shut up, already! We don't care about you anymore.
