Re: “The Skinny

The words "Do you know who I am?" Should be totally stricken from any elected officials vocabulary.

Re: “The Skinny

One point of contention: Pima County residents have not voted for and/or endorsed many millions of dollars in the current county debt. Non-voter authorized bonds called COPS, or Certificates of Participation, are approved by the Board of Supervisors without any input from the taxpayers.

One may support or oppose debt financing, be appalled or apathetic about a billion dollar plus debt, but the fact is that much of the bond debt has never been approved by Pima County residents.

Just sayin'...

Re: “Pima County Supe Ally Miller Starts Releasing Records Ahead of Discussion at Next Week's Board Meeting

Here is a job for a student of jounalism: compare the amount of space and attention this story has been given regarding a stupid move by a 19 year old novice who has embarrassed his boss vs the multi-year long fight for public records regarding the attempted give away of El Rio Golf Course and the refusal of the City to provide public documents on the proposed deal. The first story, covered extensively, is an attack on a disliked conservative politician, the other is a cover up of a (now failed) effort to give away millions of taxpayer assets by "liberal" Democrats, which has been virtually ignored. Miller was wrong, but so was the entire Mayor and Council. Miller is an easy attack. The other requires journalistic integrity.

Re: “County Supe Ally Miller Walks Out of Board Meeting as Pressure Builds on Her Slow Response To Releasing Public Records

If only the media was as outraged over the years long refusal of the City of Tucson to fully provide public documents regarding the proposed sale of the El Rio Golf Course. Of course, that deal would have given away millions of dollars of taxpayer assets, while this story is about the hated Ally Miller who dares to question King Chuckles. I am no Miller fan, and she deserves to be skewered, but the hypocracy of the Weakly and the Star is breathtaking. The stupidity of a 19 year old vs institutional corruption, and one is treated as all important while the latter is virtually ignored. Maybe Miller should change her name to Clinton...

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns: You Should Also Look into the Manufacturer's Unwelcomed Presence in Gaza Strip, West Bank

I would like to add my voice to the few commentators here who have complimented this reporter for covering this issue.

There are certainly good economic reasons to support this business coming to Tucson, but there are also serious moral objections to Caterpillar and the issue of illegal settlements and the destruction of Palestinian homes. Rachel Corrie was not a terrorist, nor are the many innocent families who have seen their homes destroyed because a family member may have been suspected of being a terrorist. Of course, Donald Trump has also advocated the killing of relatives of suspected terrorists as well, so it should not be a surprise to see his ideological bedfellows here advocate the same in the above comments.

As for the commentator that asserts that Jewish Voices For Peace has no Jewish members, please site your sources. Although it is not generally recognised here in the U.S.A., there are many Jews and Isreali's who understand and work for peace as a way to help secure the state of Israel for the future.

Again, thank you for raising this important issue.
