Re: “Kitten Therapy: A cancer survivor’s tale

Pets provide so much to our lives. Looking forward to hearing more about their antics. You've provided a great home for them.

Love the article. Jenny captured the way pets actually act. Happy Jeff is free of cancer.

Re: “Local Shelters Say: Adopt, Don’t Shop!

My wife and I have had 3 dogs in the 38 years we've live here. All 3 were adopted and all 3 were the best dogs you could ever ask for. We'd never buy a dog. Adoption is the only way to go.

Re: “Why Linda Ronstadt Still Matters to Tucson

The problem is her lips/mouth. Linda has very unique lips, and it's visible from every angle. It's one of her most attractive attributes. This girl doesn't have the right mouth.

Re: “Why Linda Ronstadt Still Matters to Tucson

What's your source on that picture? It certainly doesn't look that much like her, and it would be the only picture I"m aware of in which she's playing a guitar. I don't know that it's recorded anywhere she played guitar. She's using a barre chord, so it's not as if the person in the picture isn't at least an intermediate player.

Re: “Never Going Back to Tucson

A right to work state, can be a rough road. For a person with the wrong working skills, and low ambition.

The blue states, pay a janitor $30 an hour, and Benifits. In Tucson its $15 an hour and no benefits.

The warmer states , are harder for some.

Re: “Never Going Back to Tucson

A great article, from a gifted writer. He could replace the word Tucson, with Fargo in my case. The coldest, windiest place to the hottest place. I love the desert, and Im an air conditioning repairman the same age as the writer, about 60-65 I guess. And Im still on hot roofs 42 years later.

But I love the desert , once it gets ahold of you, its owns you. The good , bad and ugly. A right to work state, hard for a lot of people to make it. Vs the blue union states , where a janitor makes $25 an hour. Give me the warm weather and its struggles any day.. I lived in Fargo North Dakota 20 years.

The writer could have replaced the word Tucson, with 1000 different towns in our country. By 1000 different men and women, who didnt have ambition, and purpose.

This is more about lack of ambition, and success and happiness. Then it is about Tucson.

I loved his article, I love his free spirit. But that free spirit comes with a price.

No. The only ones which have lied themselves into a corner are the PO(TU)S and the pathetic sheep that actually believe that lying liar.

Re: “Tariff Catastrophe

So now Mr Grijalva calls it a crisis? Democrats have lied themselves into a corner. It is all for votes as they destroy democracy.

Re: “Court Courage

it's nice to find the occasional Weekly story that focuses on something real rather than the usual political/social agendizing you are so attached to...

Re: “Tariff Catastrophe

Wow, the first people a supposedly liberal newspaper quote are an economist and the head of the Chamber of Commerce. Yes, unlimited immigration and cheap labor are what they want.
Of course they are going to say that it's not the right way. Of course they don't specify what the right way might be, including prosecuting many card-carrying members of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce for screwing U.S. workers by undercutting wages with cheap illegal workforces from the 3rd world.
Liberals used to look out for workers. Now they're siding with the Chamber of Commerce. How times have changed!

Re: “Yes! Nunchuks Are Legal Now!

The AZ Legislature also passed the felony animal cruelty bill (HB2671) which was signed by Governor Ducey. The new law, sponsored by Rep Kavanagh, strengthens penalties and treatment options for severe animal abuse cases some ending in slow, painful deaths for animals.

By preventing egregious cases of animal abuse from being reduced to misdemeanors, abusers will no longer be able to kill or torture a family pet and end up with zero jail time and no court supervised probation or treatment. Because crimes against animals are often part of a larger pattern of domestic violence, the new law will help protect not only pets, but families and communities throughout Arizona. More info:…

Re: “A Trip Down Peyote Way

Guess what? The NAC also charges hundreds of dollars for the exact same thing, but in a different setting - church membership & the peyote experience.

Re: “Love in the Age of Narcissism

This is an excellent story, bravo to Emily for a job well done. But the cover art you used to illustrate is simply horrible. What were you thinking? A smiling woman being groped by god knows what, with a ridiculous font that looks like it should be on a heavy metal album. For a story about abused women. It is offensive. Quite disappointed.

Re: “Pathway's Problematic Preachings

Re: “Pathway's Problematic Preachings

Yes, this whole situation is truly creepy by normal societal standards; the program in St Louis was, partially, fed fresh meat (teenagers) by Anheuser B$%*H's bohemoth culture of encouraging early underage drinking; I'm a five o'clock drunk millionaire, life family partner and grateful member of the Coors family now and I LOVE IT... (Coors Corp has taken great care of my family)...wouldn't trade it for the world; I did early school in St Louis, because my parents were corporate executives for a brief period there, and all of my classmates warned me that this program "thing" was a "weird cult" that would eventually "try to harm my family;" and in an obfuscated manner the program did try to harm my family albeit subversively in order to avoid culpability; the program elites (counselors) used to confiscate the truly "elite" and "destined" members' personal property and effects in order to INDUCE gratitude to the cult's supreme leader through subversive tactics (removal of personal property and identity is a common characteristic of well documented cults especially, from California).
At one point in their history in St Louis, they had set up a "home-school" situation--basically school at one of their satellites--where they encouraged students and their families to remove the "clients" and/or drop out of their regular school situation; because they (the student/clients) were different and unique and would never succeed at regular school because of their addictions; the students were put on the standard US Military General Equivalency Diploma track--after which, I presume that their careers were matriculated internally within CROSSROADS program; the name of the St Louis program of that time. I get nauseous every time I reflect upon the brief interaction that I had with this program and it's practitioners because, I almost "really" screwed my life up.
I graduated high school, unconventionally (home-schooled and HiSET), and now hold two degrees from New Mexico State University in Masters of Science in Engineering, and Statistics (Mathematics) and a Bachelors in Economics and I am about to enter into my Doctoral Research program at another great ACCREDITED university; I did so well that I was accepted to some of the nations top tier elite schools (not that NMSU is not top tier--we are-- but these were the $100,000 year tuition private universities); I just hope that everyone who had to tolerate this strange arrangement got good and thorough therapy after they left or separated, permanently. KUDOS...CHEERS!!! :)
