Re: “It’s ShowTime!

It would maybe be ok if there was a way to weed out the crackpots like Neutopia and the 666 guy. Otherwise it's a waste of money to give crackpots a toy.

Re: “It’s ShowTime!

To all who are complaining (ahem...Mr. Again), if you are part of the community, you are FREE TO START YOUR OWN SHOW! This is not an exclusive thing. This group of people started this and made it happen. There's nothing keeping you from participating and adding your own point of view. Sitting on the sidelines and complaining does absolutely nothing.
Meetings are Tuesday at 6 pm. See you there?

Re: “It’s ShowTime!

Very disappointed with the management of our Public Access channels. (Public library could manage it better!) Nothing like doing a live TV show! 666isMONEY!

Re: “It’s ShowTime!

It's 2017. Why are you writing about a cable access tv channel? Who watches scheduled tv anymore?

Re: “It’s ShowTime!

What verbosity and self promotion! This article was a waste of space. Space that could have been used for an interesting story. SMFH.....

Mr. Again, no matter how much you wish for it, the 1950s aren't coming back.

Tucson taxpayer dollars for Hate Trump TV. Nothing more than city funded communist/socialist/liberal propaganda.

Re: “Eat This, Tucson

Or maybe it's because a good chef has actually trained and practiced a lot and knows how to use herbs, spices, different textures, different flavors, and appealing presentation to the best possible effect.

Re: “Eat This, Tucson

Dining out is the new smoking. The reason restaurant food, in general, tastes so good is that it is super high in salt and very calorically dense, while being nutritionally deficient; way more unhealthy than most people would make at home.

Re: “You Can’t Make History Alone

"My favorite thing to remember is singing Mexican ballads with my mom. These were songs about the Mexican Revolution."

"Sanctuary is a very key thing right now."

So sad that as a U.S. (United States of America) Poet Laurette you don't advocate for America, the United States of America, not Mexico.

Damn good thing Barack Hussein Obama was triumphantly denounced by the citizens of the United States of America.

Re: “You Can’t Make History Alone

So worthy of this light. The words you say and do not say. It is why poets spark revolutions.

Re: “The Return of Wyatt Earp

I have never read a more bias-immersed story in my life. I had to google the author's name to see if any immediate lineage to the cowboys appeared. How in the world do you shoot down other stories, tell a gigantic Wild West story about someone, and then say there's no story? How in the world do you justify telling all the wrongs being done to someone, admit they were going to be killed unless they stood up to lawless fiends, and then settle on their being unjust murderers? Just based on the transparent distaste for Earp, and your insistence that historians are wrong, hobbyists are wrong, everyone is wrong that finds any empathy, I can't in good conscience believe a word you've said here. Is this a wordpress blog or a legitimate newspaper? Who approved this mess?

Re: “Sex Language

The logic of this article escapes me. It seems to be comparing contemporary slang English with "traditional Chinese". First, "traditional Chinese" is undefined: "Chinese" is not a language, but a family of languages. The article never states which Chinese language was used for translations. It seems unlikely that all Chinese languages use the same terms to refer to sex. If "traditional Chinese" means "classical Chinese", which is indeed used to refer to a single language, then it seems preposterous to compare words used in classical literary Chinese with contemporary English slang.

Moreover, it is surprising these days to find an article that is unaware, or ignores, the obvious fact that perception of vulgarity is subjective: based on social and personal tastes. The terms the author finds poetic might be offensive to others, while terms like "cock" and "pussy" - which are simply animal metaphors, based on physical appearance - do not bring to my mind the violent negative connotations mentioned here.

Try this experiment: learn a few slang Cantonese sex terms, then ask a Cantonese-speaking journalist if those words are vulgar or melodic - you may be surprised.
