Re: “Danehy

I am embarrassed for him as a member of the community. The standards of journalism have eroded to cursing and name calling. If that was what I wanted I could watch Jerry Springer. Come on TW, clean up your act.

Re: “Danehy

Tom wrote: you will instantly be accosted by a female traffic cop who looks like she used to play linebacker for the Jets. That happened to me one time in New York, so I instantly endeared myself to the officer by asking, "Didn't you used to work at the malt shop on What's Happening?"

1. Does anyone really believe Tom said that to a law enforcement officer?
2. Toms use of the reference to the TV show Whats Happening is a passive-aggressive form of letting us know the race of the LEO, He already has a documented history of racist rhetoric.
3. Toms description of the female LEO is nasty and cruel.
4. Why is the Tucson Weekly allowing a columnist to stereotype women and minorities in such profane ways? If they allow Tom to stay after this column, they no longer have any standing in criticizing others for misogyny and racism. All one has to say in response is "yes, but you have Tom Danehy as a columnist."

I am just wondering do you have children? The reason I ask is that as a father I would be embarrassed if my children saw me write a column like this one.

I'm from New Jersey - and we can match the crazy, cell phone-centric Tucson drivers every day. I yell, but not out the window because you never know, here or NJ, who's packing.

You should know where all this hatred comes from Rat.

It's part of your (w)hole existence.

Re: “Danehy

As I am writing this, the cops are cleaning up another deadly (I assume) crash at Park and Valencia, 5:40 AM. One car had the entire back end chopped off up to the front seats. Yes people, leave 10 minutes earlier and you won't have to go 60 mph down Valencia.

"Crappy ass jobs and political atereotypes? Any wonder why your thinking can not win elections? Toss in "a charter school graduate?"

Where does all of this hatred come from? Get control of your own life before you try to run others.

Re: “Danehy

Being from DC, my wife and I are constantly amused by what's considered rush hour here. But we're very pleased.

Why do all of these Danehy haters read him every week as if their religion requires it? Do they have no lives?

Yeah, but what do you really think about the Times and liberals, Al (aka Crazy Wop 13)?

What does the Z stand for Zipperhead? Leave to some liberal Troll to want to restrict free speech. Why don't you get a subscription to the N.Y. Times where you'll feel right at home with wall to wall liberal bullshit?

Re: “Danehy

Ask the AZ Star what happened when they did that. Hits dropped and advertisers fled. It's a numbers game.

Re: “Danehy

It is time for Tucson Weekly to engage in some "Troll Circumcision". They, (the people that engage in endless bitch slapping tennis matches) , should be restricted to two comments. One comment , one reply. If they want to play , kissy, kissy, poke , poke, then exchange ph. #s and make a date for some open carry bar. You won't be missed.

Re: “Danehy

The last I ate there was 1984 so I guess a lot can change in 33 years. I know it used to be to die for. Probably new owners. Who knows? I know there are several good pizza joints in the area. I'm sure Brad has to ask a local where they are.

Re: “Danehy

Bad Pizza


I had high hopes for lots of good pizza during my recent trip to NYC, but Rizzo's and another place proved to be huge disappointments. The square pizza seems like a gimmick and there's almost no cheese at the edge of each square slice. The cheese and sauce were pretty lousy and the crust was just okay. Would not recommend.
Helpful?

We waited 1.5 hours for almost cheeseless pizza. It was pricey and the servers would not serve anyone who came in and stood at the counter, until we all asked to be served. We'll never eat there again.

Re: “Danehy

I retired in 2008 at the age of 57 so the last thing I need to do tax my brain or do too much thinking. If I evict him he'll only go back to sponging off his wife. I figure I'll give the poor woman a break. If you skip Rizzo's you are truly depriving yourself of something special. However, be warned. You'll never eat Tucson pizza again.

Re: “Danehy

"Living rent-free in your head." The analogy that keeps on giving!

I promise to visit Rizzo's on our next trip.

Evict him. Free yourself. Just think what you could do with that space.

Re: “Danehy

Rizzo's fine pizza on Clinton near Houston. ( No, not that also-ran Clinton.) Between that and the Essex St. Market you could eat yourself into a coma. I guess I'll have to evict Tommy. He can always go back home and let his wife support him. Oh, and I caught the neglected property dig.
