Re: “Danehy

Danehy, After reading your column I couldn't agree more. I cannot understand why someone who is under a microscope just doesn't get it.

Re: “Steve Farley Advocates For Turning Schools Into Community Schools

Maybe Regina has enough direct experience with Tucson city government to know that getting CoT mixed up with the schools is a bad idea. Geez, David. If the City of Tucson cannot manage code enforcement or interact constructively with neighborhood plans, why should we would want them mixing into education? Here, as in TUSD governance, you just show your ignorance in promoting ideas that sound good on the theoretical level, but are absolutely unimplementable based on the actual conditions and functioning levels of local institutions.

Perhaps Safier is tossing Farley a bone here because he was part of the disastrous and embarrassing Garcia campaign for governor, and he feels guilty that he and his Garcia-promoting friends disabled Farleys run for an office for which he was very well qualified and could have been a better contender than Garcia. Whatever the case, 1) discontinuing the habit of getting policy ideas from Democratic cocktail party chatter or candidate e-mails and 2) becoming better informed about local realities would markedly improve the quality of this blog.

Re: “Danehy

@Rick Spanier; heliotaxis. So, where or where do you get your connection for high-speed internet? I cut my cable channel years ago, but I'm still tied to Comcast (aka Xfiniti) for my high-speed internet. It's hard to escape the corporate masters here in Tucson....

Re: “Danehy

Wow, folks are still subscribing to cable TV?

Who knew?

We cut the cord years ago, use streaming (Hulu and a few others) and have Curiosity to encourage proper brain hygiene. Our bill is under $90 for all and we don't worry about being scammed by Comcast and the other remaining leeches still out there.

Re: “The Skinny

Lets see how long the latest #LyingAlly staffers last. After all, good help is hard to get - and even harder to keep in the District 1 office.

Whats the body count to date?

Re: “Afternoon Cartoon: Grumpy Cat

Good timing Joe. I just saw this.

AOC backs off claims. Insults Democrats. Are you one of them?

Re: “Danehy

Shark week anybody? I never watch that, but its on my TV anyway. Imagine the bandwidth that could be saved by sending only programs you actually watch instead of flooding the cable lineup with crap just to sell advertising dollars.

Re: “The Skinny

There goes the bully-boy again --

What Is Bullying ??
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:
An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their powersuch as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularityto control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.

Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

The constant drum beat of global warming/climate change/ ice age is leading many to depression.

Stay strong Debra. They just don't like people that don't think like them. Group thinkers are real stinkers.

Re: “Hands off the Wheel

The ethics of AI and automation have not caught up with the social impact and quantum probabilities that what were once roadways uses that included adventure and pleasure in addition to commerce, are now being monitored by business but supported by the travelers. There should be a hefty fee to support the examination of the social and environmental impacts of the complete monetization of infrastructure intended to support multipurpose activity and designed for an era when the technology served the human condition, not damaged it. A synchronicity approaches!
