Re: “Creative Community

According to 24/7 Wall St., these are the 25 poorest towns in America. There isn't a single mention of Arizona anywhere on the list.

Re: “Creative Community

There must be some growth. You mentioned that Tucson was the 5th poorest city in every other comment you've posted up until recently. Whether you like it or not, that's growth. You should just move away if you don't feel the growth is happening quickly enough. I understand that the North Pole is hiring; Santa is looking for elves with negative attitude. That would be the perfect job for you. You can package the coal that is distributed to those crabby little children that remind you of yourself. Merry Christmas Scrooge!

Re: “Creative Community

Tucson hasn't been known for its economic growth for decades, since the liberal anti-growthers, radical environmentalists and pro-illegal contingent took control decades ago. In fact, our economic growth is of the poorest in the nation, complementing our 6th poorest city in the country recognition.

One additional correction, please: these monks are from Wat Buddhametta: Tucson Buddhist Meditation Center, not from Dhammaratanaram temple.

Re: “The Politics of Sociability

Two corrections: The name of the dance troupe is spelled "Lajkonik". Also, the name of the food is "pierogi" (the word is already plural in Polish). A "pirogue" is a wooden canoe.

Re: “On The Hook

History has shown that once a towing company gets a government contract they get nasty.

Re: “On The Hook

Not all towing is the result of police action. I suspect a large majority don't involve the police at all.
Also it is not up to towing company to charge people a penalty for towing their vehicle even if the owner of the vehicle is not blameless.

The real crime is that the motor vehicle department will fine you $500 If you don't sign over the the title to the tow company, even if you didn't know it was towed, like being in the hospital.
A person may not be able to pay the $300 or so to retrieve their vehicle. Doesn't mater how thousands of dollars profit the tow company makes selling it.
This is a bad law and should be repealed, it severely and unfairly penalizes people on a limited income.

Hell of a lot of typos in here. Also, this is a science brief, not a story. When was your audience 200-level astronomy students?

Re: “Food​ ​Insecurity

The government should feed these students just like the homeless. The parents are paying $25,000 for tuition each year and there just isn't anything left to buy food with. This is such an unfair country.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

"Coffee is a vital part of college life." Interesting thesis. I got through college without drinking a single cup, and so can anyone else. If coffee were a necessary beverage, coffee plants would grow naturally in the local area.
The article indicates a lack of integrity on the part of the writer, mixing some serious and good information with some that is stupid and irresponsible. Is the Weekly so hard up for cash that they can't afford to hire a good writer?

Re: “Mensa mini-quiz

1. Palomino is a type of horse / breed and a color. It was classified as a horse type BEFORE the genetic component was understood. Yes, different breeds can have a tan color However, Palomino is still considered a "breed." Look it up on

2. YES. Questions that are knowledge based are absurd. No MENSA test would quantify a person's intelligence quotient using questions that would appear on Jeopardy, or in Trivial Pursuit. The questions are designed to test your ability to see patterns where most people see randomness; to problem solve, etc.

3. How is the last question a test of intelligence? Really, do highly intelligent people know that "incorrectly" is spelled incorrectly by smart people? My IQ is over 170 and I didn't know that. Why would I? Is there a cutesy clue in the question itself, like a "wink, wink" isn't this cute?
