Re: “Facebook-Free Friday

Facebook-Free everyday!

The BIGGEST waste of time on this planet is facebook. I have WAY better activities to waste time with. I don't have an account and I never will.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Thanks for the article! I live in Poet's Square and see him almost daily. On one particular occasion I got up the nerve to try and talk to him. It was in the evening and he was watching kids play soccer across the street at Rincon High School. As I walked toward him I noticed him looking at me out of the corner of his eye. I asked him, "Do you know who's winning?" He responded with a low, guttural, "No." I was too nervous to continue and didn't want to bother him so I told him to have a nice night and walked away. I too have developed a fascination with him and love that you took the time to give us a beautiful piece on a beautiful human being.

Re: “The Skinny

What's the big deal? Does every issue REQUIRE a response from a politician or other public figure? I personally wish some of these learned "public figures" would be as mum as Congresswoman McSally but then we wouldn't have such silly articles.

Re: “NAFTA Nuances

NAFTA sure didn't benefit me or the 200+ others that were laid off from the company (that already had DEEP pockets) which we were employed by. All NAFTA ever did for anyone was make the rich already richer and make it so they have an easier way to pay next to nothing for foreign labour.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

What a great piece of writing. Thank you so much for writing about Arthur Conlee. For the last two years, I've passed him nearly daily standing -- leaning into traffic -- on Fifth Street between Swan and Columbus. I've always wondered what his story was and have often felt compelled to stop to see if he may need anything, but he seemed fine and as if he didn't want to be bothered. I also see him in a form of meditation when he's out there. He always seemed such a mystery and I thought I'd never know anything about him. I'm grateful for just the pinch of who he is and find it satisfying.

So then you agree that Al Franken and Joe Biden should resign?

Re: “The Skinny

Does every woman in Alabama have to come forth saying that Roy Moore sexually assaulted them to convince the brain-hole Republican right-wingnut conservatives that he is a full-blown pedophile and should have been labeled a sexual predator instead of becoming a judge. What the hell were they thinking? It's not like a cold that goes away after a couple of weeks.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I am left feeling completely confused. I want to feel sorry for the man, yet he is happy. Changing him may make him miserable, but how hard will it be not to help him?

Re: “The Skinny

The Skinny rarely investigates anything, just as we see with Huckleberry's unchecked excuses.

Where are the photos of the worn out furniture? Where are the proof of original purchase price and the auction sale price of said furniture? By the way why aren't the roads in Pima County in better shape?

The only thing Skinny here are real facts. There seem to be very few. Is anything actually investigated or is it all about political smear campaigns to empower those that agree with your agenda?

Re: “McSally Silent on Roy Moore Accusations

Tucson Weekly and Arizona's Democrat Congressional Delegation still silent on sexual harassment and assault allegations against Democratic Senator Al Franken.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

This is a strong and very interesting and revealing piece of writing.
As revealing as it is, I am curious, but feel somewhat intrusive regarding Arthur's identity and privacy.
The story leaves me wanting more, but feeling somewhat embarrassed about my selfish curiosity.
Arthur seems like a sensitive man who by simply being himself, could teach us all something of significance and spirituality. He is comfortable in his own skin...how many of us can say the same?

Re: “The Skinny

If we're going to cherry-pick from Supervisor Miller's list, I'll go with the Downtown Court Complex. Bonds were approved in the amount of $76 million, but an additional $61, 872, 366 was spent. Neither the County Administrator, nor The Skinny, tells us where that money came from. Huckelberry admits to $16 million General Fund money spent and offers rather weak reasons why it "had" to be, ignoring a lot of possible alternatives. Sorry if I'm confusing anyone with the facts.

Re: “The Skinny

She's voted with the Trumpers & R's 93% of the time. I'm amazed that anyone would be surprised by her reluctance to speak on the possibility of a pedophile being elected to the Senate....and yes, I do believe those women!

Re: “NAFTA Nuances

Why does the weekly (rightfully so) criticize TPP and defend NAFTA? "Does free trade work" NAFTA works well for the big busineesmen across all three countries. It does not benefit the working class anywhere. When this peddled 20 years ago it was reported that illegal immigration from Mexico would slow down because this deal would improve the economy for Mexico so much that their lower classes would experience a reduction in poverty. That sure as hell wasnt true then. And saying that this agreement benefits all of us is not true now.

Re: “McSally Silent on Roy Moore Accusations

Stephen M Zumbo, your comments incriminate you as being a Republican right-wing conservative christian. I take offense at any person trying to manage and rule the lives of other individuals unless they are your parents and you are underage. Republicans want to take away all forms of birth control and the day after pills but you also want to take away the RIGHT GIVEN BY THE SUPREME COURT IN the CASE of ROWE VS WADE to an abortion. Get your mind and ideas off other peoples wants and needs and stop trying to dictate your religious principles on people who do not share your religious views.

Re: “McSally Silent on Roy Moore Accusations

Stephen Zumbo, by the sounds of it, you don't talk to many women, period.

Feminist and right to choose folks DO want abortion rare and safe...they want to have ease of access to birth control, which you nutjobs do not want women to have, either.

Stop trying to control women. They do not owe you shit.
