Re: “Editor’s Note

I have to be honest here. I doubt very highly that AC/DC is the culprit here. Him and I decided to call a truce some time ago. It had what to do with Ginger Baker, Jimi Hendrix and George Carlin. We still don't agree on anything, we just don't attack each other over it.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I remember first hearing "Chavalo Loco" on La Caliente Hot 98FM, when I was in high school. What a show! What a character! What a personality!

When I met him, a few months later, I was star struck.

Today, I'm happy to call Frank a friend. He's one of the good ones!!!

Re: “BASIS Makes a Rare Response to Criticism: Part 2

In the midst of the non-stop propaganda war between two irresponsible political factions here in Arizona, we don't have enough people who take the time and trouble to ask questions and make observations that are based on sound knowledge of what's going on in the schools and that are motivated by a firm commitment to defending the best interests of the STUDENTS BEING "EDUCATED" IN THESE SCHOOLS, not the best interests of politicians and whatever agenda they may be trying to pitch to the electorate. It is NOT the case that the under-funding of public district schools is the only problem we need to solve to ensure better education delivery, as one faction would have it. The entire Arizona "system," which could more aptly be termed a "free for all" -- an insufficiently regulated, uncoordinated MESS of public district, private, and charter institutions -- suffers from a toxic lack of responsible oversight and a pervasive ignorance about what good educational methods are. Commentators like Safier just make the problems worse by circulating their shoddy, tendentious, politically motivated analyses of what's going on and proposing false solutions to very real problems.

Re: “Who’s Watching Your Web Trail?

palisades - what a great plan, ignore the mass killing, maybe give them some money, have John Kerry and Susan Rice LIE to the American people that all WMD's were removed.

What a plan! Kumbaya, My Lord, Kumbaya!

Re: “BASIS Makes a Rare Response to Criticism: Part 2

It's Safier and his followers who need to get a grip on the facts. The holes in the credibility of his arguments are large enough to drive a truck through and there's no principled core to any of it -- not valid advocacy for progressive education methods; not consistent, credible promotion of desegregation and / or social justice; not defense of transparency and proper protocols in the management of public schools -- just specious arguments to back up what certain politicians want done with education funding and governance.

Sad.

Re: “BASIS Makes a Rare Response to Criticism: Part 2

This is an argument that is ridiculously easy to resolve. Just look at their enrollement figures before criticizing Mr. Safire! Get a grip on the facts.

Re: “Who’s Watching Your Web Trail?

you see, im well aware that washington's fervor of war is bipartisan, which is why i never said i was a hillary supporter.

mass killing is not okay with me, which is why im opposed to our intervention in wars that leads to more killing, especially in the middle east. but dont take my word for it.

Chelo, Chelo, Chelo! Don't let bigots coerce you into qualifying their racism as just someone's opinion. It's easy to slip back into old journalism, but the times need the new standard, even during innocuous discourse.

Re: “Editor’s Note

I was going to ignore you, but I have a problem. Am I dealing with 6 different idiots or 1 idiot using 6 different names? I tend to believe the latter as there is no way there can be that many stooges out there. All you know how to do hurl insults. Any asshole can do that. Seriously, what smart thing have you ever said? Just a few facts.
1) Rat T is a she not a he.
2) Get a job? I had a job. One that paid so well I retired at the age of 57 and have lived quite well. Let me know if your still toiling away when your 57.
3) It's nice that you stand up for Mari. She's a woman who I'm sure is more capable of defending herself. Or maybe you can tell me how President Trump is a racist . Do I sense a bit of a sexist attitude? What the Hell. When I disagreed with Obummer's policies I was called a racist.
Let me save you the effort. CW 13 is a troll and a fool. We're ( I'm?) tired of him and his band of right wing stooges cluttering up the pages of The Weekly.
It must really suck being you.
