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.

Now that the temperature is finally in the 70s, we Tucsonans are undergoing the Transition.

Dear guy on the far side of the political chasm: Things are getting out of hand, but I sincerely believe that you and I—two diametrically opposite people, politically—can do something about it.
