Re: “Creative Community

Please quote the exact sentence in any of my posts where I used the word "troll."

Also, it's "you're," not "your."

Re: “Creative Community

@AZ/DC,

I did a bit more research and found that there was apparently a Brookings Institution study that What, Again may have been referring to. It was cited on CBS news, I think. What you say about rankings for cities over 500,000 makes sense. So, the third worst city on the Brookings Institution list is Philadelphia, and Philadelphia has a completely different set of circumstances, different demographics, a different history, different culture--I actually lived nearby for a while years ago. Could it be that there is a common thread here that may not be a Tucson-specific issue? I would imagine that debt, financial mismanagement and good old-fashioned corruption and graft may be big woes for any large-ish city. Also, there does seem to be a pattern of Sun Belt cities running out of money in recent years due to the fact that many snowbirds dumped their winter homes and seriously cut back on spending following the recession. This holds true for cities in Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, and SoCal as well. So no, I don't think the "anti-growth" card is entirely accurate. Thanks for the added info and fact-checking.

Re: “Creative Community

Ex-Arizonan:

When Wrong, Again mentions that Tucson is the 6th poorest city, he, much like the rest of his trolling ilk, is only mentioning part of the facts.

The whole truth is that Tucson is currently rated as the 6th for U.S cities with populations over 500,000. He always fails to include that part.

Although I do understand why he does this. What he has to say doesn't hold as much weight when you reveal the whole truth. This is also typical of his trolling ilk.

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. http://247wallst.com/special-report/2016/05/09/americas-richest-and-poorest-towns/7/

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.
