Re: “Requiem for Rolf

Rolfs death has turned sweet 16. I cried over his absense tonight for the first time since I cried laat, 16 years ago. I didnt understand myself over the years, meaning why I felt so cold and absent of care of who we were to each other, but for whatever reason, Rolf resurected for me tonight, whole, im glad this piece exists on line. Your portait of him, is intensely accurate. Prayer cireworks up forever.

Re: “Flake Takes a Turn To the Right

Looks like the Republican health care bill has just failed because two Republican Senators refused to support it:
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/17/us/politics/health-care-overhaul-collapses-as-two-republican-senators-defect.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0

We need to move away from gridlock, not descend deeper into it. Those who look at every Republican who inclines toward bipartisan compromises as a weak member of the herd and join extremists in the opposing party to try to take centrists down are only exacerbating a situation in which our representatives must refuse, in order to survive politically, to work together for the common good.

Re: “Political Punch

And you need to give up. 6 years of annoying the Left around here and no sign of quitting. At least I stick with one name.

Re: “Political Punch

You are correct. Trump can't even keep what lie he is telling straight. It will be absolutely terrifying when he lies about war, diplomacy, or an "incident" justifying war. And many young people will pay the price for his lies. History will judge those few voters In Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania who pushed him into the electoral college, very harshly, and the majority of voters to the tune of almost four million, very nicely.

I listen to Rainer almost every day and have for 25+ years. Always as fresh as the 1st listen.

Re: “Flake Takes a Turn To the Right

It's Flake's choice to be just another faceless tool of the rich on the lockstepping GOP Death Panel. But he could become something of a heroic rogue merely by jumping ship on the health bill - you know, doing the humane thing for millions of Americans. People are suckers for Republicans who even rarely do the decent thing. There are still people who think McCain is a rebel. And all he had to do was some unexpectedly decent comment, or even more rarely -a decent vote - every few years.

Re: “A River Ran Through It

We need to make sure we get this natural source of water flowing through Tucson again! It was never anyone right to dam it the way they did or dry it. Now 2017 I'm sure we can restore it. We need to act fast. They Building more and more in the "Flood Areas" as an more valid excuse as to why they cant restore it. People in power know people are going to start fighting for these types of things now! A guy in California is sueing now and he states that the river is mostly dry due to general electric company taking control of most of the rivers up NW that ran down to the SW i thought that was the main reason why it had dried. Please any info on how we can start something to regain this river would be nice

Re: “Koch Bros. and ALEC Shout From the Rooftops: "Stop Rooftop Solar!"

The problem is that the solar power is all released when the utilities do not need it. The power should be stored on batteries and released during Peak Demand periods.
