Well, all you Trump cultists who used to be part of the now-defunct Republican Party, that whirlwind is coming your way. Oh, it’s a long way off because the now-totally unrestrained Donald Trump must first lay waste to America and democracy and Mitt Romney. But when he runs out of rivers to pollute, syntax to butcher, and brown-skinned families to destroy, he’ll come for you.

Fights have been breaking out at the east end of downtown with ridiculous regularity and the violence is threatening to put a damper on the impressive progress that has been made in the downtown area.

It’s a new year and we’re now in the Twenties. Some of the old questions (many of which have never been answered) must now give way to new questions.

After listening to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey’s State of the State address last week, some people who had not voted for Ducey (and never will) were oddly encouraged by some of the points he raised and proposals he made. One friend of mine went so far as to suggest that Ducey might be tacking toward the center. Even if it’s out of some sort of political pragmatism, any leftward movement should be welcomed.

Tonight, when most of you—if you’re lucky!—will be watching the episode that comes before the penultimate episode of The Good Place (don’t tell me what happens), I’ll be at the Fox Theatre, awash in the sweet funk/soul sounds of what remains of one of my favorite groups of all time, the Average White Band.

Two thousand nineteen was a rather somber year for me, but it was not without its entertainment highlights. As always, these are my favorite things and not in any way judged to be the “The Best.”

Today, after turning down countless opportunities for Never NOT Trumpers to temper their idolatry with just a dash of decency and/or common sense, it seems to be a fool’s errand.

I can’t let 2019 go by without looking back at one more ugly historic episode, that of the Wyoming Black 14, a group of thoughtful and talented young men caught in the roiling confluence of sports and politics. It was one of those things that, in retrospect, just seems exactly right for those times, even though it turned out oh-so-very wrong.

Seeing as how we’re getting into the Holy Season, I’ve been thinking about Kanye West’s miraculous conversion from washed-up rapper to sorta-Christian.

This week, Tom has a big list of what local and national folks should really be thankful for.

For those of you who are relatively new to our fair community, it may come as a surprise that they used to make movies in Tucson.

Transgender people deserve every protection under the law in the workplace, in housing, in education, in marriage, and in life. They deserve our respect, our patience and our understanding. But, in my opinion (formed by decades in believing in the fairness of sport), they do not automatically deserve to compete against ciswomen. They just don’t.

Tom reveals his ideas of romance, and it involves Blazing Saddles and Pizza Hut.

Now that the temperature is finally in the 70s, we Tucsonans are undergoing the Transition. All it takes is three consecutive days where the daytime highs are in the 70s and the nights are cool and crisp and we forget all about how hot and nasty the preceding six months were (although this past May was delightfully cool).
