Re: “Bloom Free

Isaac you were born to do this work. As Jocelyn Valencia was born to do hers. Give us more to see, as Sondheim said...

Re: “Bloom Free

Great piece on a spectacular human. Ive been away from Tucson and its important scene for some time, but as I watch from a distance, Jocelyn is magic, the kind of magic needed in Tucson, and this world. Many blessings and continued success.

Re: “Bloom Free

I really struggle with this. Am I the only one who struggles with the problems of being "woman of color in a white patriarchy" while at the same time indulging what arguably presents itself as a misogynist culture with a capital "M"?

To quote some 21 Savage lyrics: "Spray your block down, we not really with that ru-rah shit/Glock cocked now, I dont really give no fuck bout who I hit/Yeah, your bitch, she get jiggy with me/Keep that Siggy with me/Bitch, Im Mad Max, you know I got Ziggy with me"

Maybe, just maybe, the "ugly gentrification" we see in Tucson and elsewhere might, at least in part, have something to do with the fact that people here are getting tired of being exposed to the very themes that hip-hop seems to eternally perpetuate, like all this gang crap, glorification of misogyny, violence and crime ?

Re: “Fun and Games and More

I've been to their gallery in Bisbee a few times and always enjoyed their work. Congratulations on your show! I wish I could be there!

Re: “Fun and Games and More

What a clever curator, to have found Sam and Poe in Bisbee! And then to bring them to Tucson! I'm entranced by their work and I've visited the exhibit three times already. I'm planning to bring some friends to share it with.

Re: “Bisbee Deportation

The name of my art project is "The Undesirables" not The Deplorables. The title is critically important.

Re: “God On Our Side

Had no idea that Neil Simon wrote a play based on the book of Job. Knowing Simon's body of work, it sounds like it should be an underrated gem.

Re: “The Age of Anxiety

Thank you Margret for reminding us that Art is one of our most potent agencies in sparking the imagination in resistance to systematic dissolve and that Art which is reserved for escapistt purpose and profit always comes up short in feeding those most in need .

Re: “The Death of JosĂ© Antonio

Hi there, I thought Jose Antonio was murdered on October 10th, not on the 8th?

Re: “Justice Denied

Yet there are so-called "real Americans" alive today that would gladly see the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of Islamic-Americans limited, curtailed or eliminated because of the same racially-motivated fears based on ignorance and misdirected national patriotism.

I spent more than 20 years defending the United States from "all enemies, foreign and domestic", but more than that it was about upholding values and recognizing the reality that there are evil people in the world who would use any means necessary to secure and maintain power over others -- even if it meant harnessing the most base emotions, cloaking them in the American flag, and using them to destroy the America that I know and love from within.

Re: “Justice Denied

I wish I could call FDR one of our greatest presidents for the good he did do, but nothing makes up for his legacy of this crime in our history.
