Re: “Editor's Note

Ralph's comment is interesting. Have you taken a good look at what Tucson has become and who is in charge?

Re: “Op-ed: My Pick For Arizona Superintendent Of Public Instruction: David Garcia

So when you say "progressive" is he supportive of public charter schools?

Re: “Rick Santorum Faults Gay Marriage For Surge in Single Moms, and Polygamy is Next

Great societies have crumbled throughout history when the foundation of that society cracks. That foundation has always been built on the family. Focusing on gay marriage is a bit myopic. The big picture is that we have lost our bearing when it comes to marriage. With so many marriages failing and folks giving up on marriage we are at a critical state. That needs to be fixed in order to save our country.

Re: “Sanchez Made A Poor Decision Hiring Grijalva's Relative

HT Sanchez apologized on the Desimone Daily Double (KVOI 1030 AM) yesterday. I thought it was very honorable and he said he learned from his mistakes. You don't often hear leaders admit they make any. You can listen to the podcast at

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

I know it makes for a good news story to focus on a handful of protestors doing stupid things. This doesn't help us get to a solution. Particularly since these fools were probably set up for political reasons. There are some of us that want to rationally wrestle with this issue and pass immigration reform ala the Senate version that includes border security and pay a fine get in line. Further we need to address the underlying issue which is ignored mostly because we are compelled to act with compassion for the children and those fleeing. Why are they coming here? We need to use our will and resources to help solve the problems in Central and South America.

Re: “Fred DuVal Throws Down The Gauntlet On School Funding

David, your hyper partisanship is unnerving. Education is important to all of us whether we are Republican or Democratic, the issue is the how not the what. We also need to be truthful in our arguments, even if it hurts our cause. Some of the comments show me that misinformation has permeated the "faithful". Charter schools are public schools and many of them are working and creating a more progressive environment for education. Once it comes down to our paychecks we cease to look for what is best for our kids and are only concerned with ourselves.

Re: “Ruling Gives More Funding To Arizona Schools

Long feared? You generally take the position that Republicans are against education. It is interesting how liberals embrace environmental conservatism but are sneer at fiscal conservatism. True conservatives believe in conserving all resources and using them to the maximum benefit for all.
