Re: “Tucson Salvage

For years, since his time in the Golf Links Pantano area, I too, wondered what Mr. Conlee's story might be. I thought he might be an old friend from high school and wanted so much to know , so thank you. I do worry about him when he's out in 110 degree heat wearing a sweater but he seems to be living his life just the way he wants to.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Thank you for writing this story. I hope that it will help people be less uncomfortable around him and more generous. From an observational standpoint, I think that you missed talking about his military bearing during his long watch or the exotic nature of his phenotype. He looks like an Ethiopian prince or at least a palace guard. I rarely see as disheveled as he is portrayed but perhaps that is just my romantic view. In any case, I hope you will continue to maintain contact with the Seer of 5th St. You are his family now.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I live in the neighborhood and see Arthur everyday. On nightly walks, my husband and I have approached him and said, "hi," we never get too much response. It is amazing to read a piece on someone so many of us have wondered about.

Re: “Facebook-Free Friday

I waste too much time too, even without a computer at home. The one enjoyable thing about facebook is contact with decades old friends from my childhood, & posts from cousins I rarely see.

Re: “Lil Peep Passes Away Before Show at The Rock

Another drug-addict bites the dust. Been happening forever. Poppin' pills, drinking, and all that won't fix your problems.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I'm so happy to know about Arthur's story, I too have seen him over the years. For about 4 or 5 years he lived near my neighborhood around Golf Links and Kolb and I would see him observing life. He disappeared and then a year later I saw him in his new neighborhood, it brought me happiness to see he was still safe.
