Re: “The Skinny

Is the Weekly going to be doing a voting guide/making recommendations for this election? Or have your corporate masters put a stop to that? Since the ballots just came out, it would be nice to have it sooner than later.

Re: “The Skinny

Kudos to "sgsmith" who is able to see the real problem here. Maybe he/she/they would be willing to run for public office in Pima County. . .or write for the "Weekly".

Re: “The Skinny

"Miller griped that during rainstorms, the office windows leak."

Just another example of the multi-generational climate deniers who have lived in Tucson for decades. No, I'm not talking about those that question the science and existence of global climate change and call it a theory or a hoax (it's neither), but those who have for years refused to acknowledge that it DOES rain in Tucson Arizona.

You know, the people in government who won't build roads and bridges with suitable drainage, not because it doesn't rain in Tucson, but because it rains so little and "costs so much" to do anything about it -- even when doing something about it would save more money instead of constant repair costs, not to mention the potential for risking lives with roadways that turn into flooded death traps for motorists and the first responders who have to rescue those who put the "stupid" into the Stupid Motorist Law.

Nope, don't worry about the leaky windows and roofs. Forget about the flooded streets and washed out roadways. The sun will come out, dry everything up and we can all get back to wondering, "When do you think it will rain again?"

Re: “The Skinny

Yes, A(nna)VL, facts often get in the way of taking the Bully Boy and his minions' word for it:

American Industrial Hygiene Association: there are no standards for acceptable levels of mold in the indoor environment.

US Center for Disease Control: "excessive exposure to mold-contaminated materials can cause adverse health effects in susceptible persons regardless of the type of mold or the extent of contamination."
When mold cannot be prevented, the CDC recommends clean-up protocol including first taking emergency action to stop water intrusion. Second, they recommend determining the extent of water damage and mold contamination. And third, they recommend planning remediation activities such as establishing containment and protection for workers and occupants; eliminating water or moisture sources if possible; decontaminating or removing damaged materials and drying any wet materials; evaluating whether the space has been successfully remediated; and reassembling the space to control sources of moisture.

BTW - I'm a Warren supporter. Dump Trump!

A(nna)VL:

Did you actually read the article? It's damn near impossible to fake ELEVEN PAGES of test results. Let me guess, you're probably a tRump lover also, correct? Your kind HATES facts.

Re: “The Skinny

Here he goes again...the Bully Boy can't leave Supervisor Miller and her staff alone. No matter that mold, for someone like me with COPD, is a major threat that constituents should not be exposed to. And the leaking windows? Maybe just a dab of the millions spent on failed and failing projects -- anyone remember World View? -- could be diverted to making the offices of our elected representatives safe.

The only immigrants who live in fear are those here in direct violation of our laws - the laws passed by the people.

How very sad, If Romero wins, since she supports infanticide.

Re: “The Skinny

I wish the Skinny had the excess room to report on Raul Grijalva. Or maybe they do.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/rep-ral-grijalva-faces-ethics-probe-over-hostile-workplace-allegations/ar-AACTtpS?li=BBnb7Kz

How much will it cost us this time Raul?

Re: “The Skinny

He didn't back off tariffs, he got the concessions he wanted- for Mexico to make some efforts to stop sending massive caravans of illegal immigrants to our borders. Of course Mexico denies that they caved to pressure. Do you even have a vague grasp of how diplomacy works?
You know something is rotten when liberals start quoting the Chamber of Commerce to back up their arguments. Way to be on the same side as the rich CEOs you are usually blaming for every problem on earth.

Re: “The Skinny

I love this new phenomena of the bullys thinking they can just call their accusers bullies and we'll all feel sorry for them. It's the equivalent of the "I Know you are but what am I gambit". Unfortunately that rhetorical device is ineffective after 3ed grade which coincidentally is exactly the level of Miller & Co.

Re: “The Skinny

There goes the Bully-Boy again. What Psychology Today says about bullying:

"What Is Bullying?
"Bullying is a distinctive pattern of harming and humiliating others, specifically those who are in some way smaller, weaker, younger or in any way more vulnerable than the bully. Bullying is not garden-variety aggression; it is a deliberate and repeated attempt to cause harm to others of lesser power. It's a very durable behavioral style, largely because bullies get what they want, at least at first. Bullies are made, not born, and it happens at an early age, if the normal aggression of 2-year-olds isn't handled with consistency."

Sounds like a childish male thing at the Weakly.
