Re: “The Skinny

This city has far too many government employees for a Republican to win. Funny thing is that our roads are proof of it.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Sounds like the guy was scrambled, cracked under pressure and then wound up with egg on his face. No yoke. They are going to fry him if he doesn't keep the sunny side up. Given enough time he will come out of his shell.

Re: “Danehy

Is it possible that rather than attempting to judge "unspoken" thoughts, that you entertain the possibility that you are a flawed low information voter?

After 8 years of Obama one could list all the failures that were so ignored by you, because of his skin color. This thing cuts both ways. Why not adhere to MLK's "I have a dream" where you judge people on the content of their character?"

Here is a great place to start your rehab, from 2014.

By now, nearly five and a half years into the Obama presidency, objective people can draw reasonable conclusions, among which are these: Barack Obama was among the least prepared men to ever serve as presidency. It shows. He has been overmatched by events right from the start. He is an excellent campaigner but unusually inept when it comes to governing.

By temperament and experience, based on skill set and ability, Mr. Obama is much better equipped to be a community organizer than to be president of the United States.

For the sake of our nation and much of the world, I wish he had stayed on Chicagos South Side.

And then you must admit, this past week Donald Trump has looked like the world leader we have been waiting for. Brilliant, simply brilliant!

Don't count on it. However, I'll give Tom this much. Putney Swope was a great movie. One of the best satires ever. " How many syllables, Mario? How many syllables?"

Re: “Nearly Mythical

These advertisements masquerading as reviews are getting sad and tired.

How much were the meals you ate?

Mr. Wong has been helping to launch restaurant start ups in Tucson for 20 years? What restaurants?

You quote them as saying they source their food locally and in the same sentence she says she flew in Lobster from Maine? Where are they sourcing their food locally? What are they sourcing?

Is this an advertisement? A review? A fluff piece? It is definitely not journalism, I hope they paid you for the blow job.

Thanks for another liberal rant, maybe next time we can have a non political, tired, Trump bashing column.

Re: “The Skinny

Kozachik beat Nina Trasoff in 2009 not 2011. The third contest this year is in Ward 5, which the Weekly failed to even reference again in an article. Nintzel should get an F in his journalism class at the U of A for such errors.

Re: “Crop Conundrum

"it's that they don't want to work, or at least work for us" -- raise wages. Improve working conditions, etc. You'll then find plenty of workers. Americans will work, but not in godawful conditions for slave wages.

If you give illegals a "path to citizenship" then they aren't going to want to work at the stinky chicken farm and you'll have to import another 12 million illegal aliens to work for your slave wages.

Re: “The Skinny

What a bunch of clowns. Mariano Rodriguez is too busy to talk to the Tucson Weekly and doesn't call them back. Republican Party chairman David Eppihimer says Watson isn't a true "Republican" because he supported a sales tax hike to pay for cops, fire and road repair. So much for the large tent the republicans keep saying they have. I guess keeping Tucson shitty and cheap is more important than protecting its citizens. For some people I guess $3/month per person is too much for proper police and fire protection. But hey, if the bonds had passed last year all this would be moot.

Re: “Danehy

If they were it wouldn't match the hate and ignorance portrayed in the article. Is it not enough to realize Clinton is a flawed candidate? That's why they torpedoed Sanders.

Too bad Lent doesn't last longer.

Re: “Because of Results-Based Funding, 15 to 17 Percent of Schools Will Get "A" Grades, Down From 30 Percent. Here's Why That's Important

Two different visions:

1. Ensuring that the worst teacher in the worst school in the worst school district has a full classroom.

2. Providing so many choices for so long that every full classroom is evidence of a world class teacher.

Re: “Because of Results-Based Funding, 15 to 17 Percent of Schools Will Get "A" Grades, Down From 30 Percent. Here's Why That's Important

If we are concerned about the generally dismal state of our System of Public Education, we would not hesitate to supports efforts at improvement. We cannot continue with our heads in the sand, and, under the shibboleth, local control of Education watch passively as our System of Public Education becomes, internationally, at best, Second Rate!! The viability of our Democracy and National Security are in jeopardy.

Given the wide classroom instructional heterogeneity within Public Schools/Districts, it is necessary to have some State objective measure so as to determine if Students are being taught properly and/or effectively learning the required body of information per Subject Area. This is the sole purpose of Standardized Assessment Examinations. AzMerit is such an Assessment Examination and will indicate the effectiveness of the Schools/Districts Academic Program, so that, if necessary, remedial action can be taken; so as to ensure Teacher/Administrator Academic Accountability.
