Re: “104.1 Dumps Truth, Adds News Block, Moves Justice

Most of Jon's audience will be at work when his show comes on. This will wipe out the comedic bits that he and April Madison have recently perfected, and most of his interviews with Katie Pavlich, Steven Cruiser, S.E. Cupp and others will occur when the primary audience's radios have been turned off. James T Harris didn't fare well in that time slot, but now flourishes in the afternoon drive time slot. Moving Jon from the morning drive slot is simply a bone-headed action on the part of KQTH's management.

Re: “The Battle for a Solar Arizona

"The second choice lets APS buy all electricity produced by new solar residential systems at wholesale prices and then sell it back at retail rates—paying 4 cents per kilowatt hour and selling it for 12 cents or more, according to the group Tell Utilities Solar Won't Be Killed, or TUSK.

In that case, that is a business transaction and the payments from APS would be subject to sales tax."

Why would wholesale priced electricity be subject to sales tax?

Re: “Best Radio Talk Show (Host)

The use of a homosexual act to label a political group is akin to hate speech, not "fun".

Re: “Pima County Shuts Down Its Speed Cameras

Guy - The red light cameras are purported to "reduce the number of red light collisions". The problem with these systems is that the timing of the yellow and all-way-red lights is too short per the 1960 and 61 traffic engineering handbooks. Formulas were worked out that eliminated 99 percent of the red light running collisions. For a 45 mph zone, a seven second yellow followed by a 4 second all-way-red provides the safest minimum timing. When you go out to the red light camera intersections, you will find that the yellow light timing is usually around 4 to 5 seconds and zero to one second all-way-red. Shaving that much time puts drivers of heavier vehicles at a disadvantage and forces them to make abrupt load-shifting stops or slide into the intersection. If it was really about safety, they would adhere to the minimum timing standards and then apply photo enforcement. The dirty secret is that keeping the timing short maintains a financially needed level of infractions.
