Re: “Tucson Salvage

Wonderful to know more about this gentleman. My husband and I see him daily and when I don't see him out there I worry. I'm also very happy to finally know his name. Always wondering if he's ok and now I know he's simply enjoying life in his own way. Thank you!

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I've seen this fellow standing, looking at traffic on Swan many times. I've been tempted to stop and talk to him. I'm glad you did.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Thank you for this story! Arthur is a part of our daily commute. I am so glad to know he is taken care of. We often see him with a snack while watching traffic like many watch tv in the afternoon, now I know we are his curiosity as much as he is ours.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

He lives near my parents. Ive seen cops pulling up and harassing him on a couple different occasions. Dude is chill. He doesnt want any problems. Just wants to do his thing.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Arthur used to live near my work.My friend and I were so worried when we didn't see him.Then one day, driving down 5th, there he Morgan Freeman in Bruce Almighty.I was so excited, I called up my friend and shared the good news.There is something foreign to those with special needs to the rest of us.But, God is in those details of our misunderstandung.Arthur just brings me joy.He stands through noise and hurriedness, still and serene.If only.....

Re: “The Skinny

Actually, retrorv, I took it from Huckelberry's memo, not Supervisor Miller's website. It seems they agree on the amount, just not what was done with it. Check it for yourself on the Pima County website.

If the Board of Supervisors is the County Administrator's employer, and it is, how does the employee get to trash one of his employers with such impunity? I was a union rep for 21 years and could never have won such a clear-cut case of gross insubordination. Even with the active help of Mr. Nintzel.

Re: “The Skinny

Clinton and Sanders campaigns both took advantage of young women. Some believe they attract them because they believe they are young and ignorant. Which one of us will say "enough?" They are destroying our government with their criminality. Get out!…

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Really enjoyed this article. Arthur used to be in our neighborhood and it gave me a smile to see him again near Rincon. Makes my heart happy knowing he has people looking out for him and his needs.

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.

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.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Wow Brian. I loved reading this article. I feel a bit of jealously at his simple life. Could I live like that? Maybe? Anyways, thank you my friend.
