Arthur is certainly a gatekeeper between worlds. How he sees life and the beauty in simple things is awesome. Reminds me that I need to smell the roses in my own life. Good piece of journalism here. Tired of hate and crime. Humanity is precious.

Re: “Facebook-Free Friday

Dave, in your first paragraph your description of what you like about Facebook fits how I see and use Facebook. Then you go into a rant about Zuckerberg and attack his character because Facebook is in business to make a buck. That's capitalism and entrepreneurism, from which we, at least most of us humans, have greatly benefited. Facebook is less than perfect, but what would be perfect for you, would not necessarily be perfect for me. To totally personalize Facebook would require a very complex algorithm, probably not worth the cost to develop. I don't have problem with Facebook as it is, particularly since it's free and optional, i.e., not required viewing. And if one anticipates propaganda and misinformation, and deals with it accordingly, what's problem.

Regarding "Biggest waste of time on this planet is Facebook", no, vacuuming the carpet is the biggest waste of time; it just gets dirty again.

Re: “McSally Silent on Roy Moore Accusations

Typical over-reaction by pro-abortion responders. Why don't you care more for your fellow women, why do you keep resisting any attempt to make it rare?

I am not against birth control, except when you want to use abortion, or the morning after pill, which in the case of abortion actually kills a human being oh, the majority of which are women, and then the case of the morning after pill which doesn't always prevent pregnancy but May kill an implanted unique human being in its mother's uterus.

I am not trying to control women. I'm trying to get them to reconsider their point of view on abortion and to control themselves. you claim to want abortion to be safe and rare? what are you actually doing to make that happen? most abortions are not necessary. They are convenience or imposed by force by parents or peer pressure. why won't you acknowledge that if you care about women? why won't you actively work to cut back on the number of abortions? if you have a right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, why don't the children you conceive have the same rights?

the founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist according to her own words. She believed that white races were Superior to others. the number one killer of black people is abortion. how many people have been killed in the womb who might have lived 2 come up with answers to our real problems? how many aborted children would have had a life such as the one you are currently enjoying?

Thanks for this! I see Arthur almost every day and every time I drive by Swan / 5th I look for him and wonder about his story. Glad to put a name to the face.

Re: “McSally Silent on Roy Moore Accusations

Actually, the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision explicitly says that if it could be proven that life begins at conception oh, then the right to abortion on demand would collapse, because the child would have a right to life. We knew in 1973 and we know now when life begins according to biology: life clearly begins at conception with a new set of chromosomes donated by both the father and mother. why do you choose not to believe this and to accept the implications of it. Currently abortion on demand shows that abortion is not rare, and the recent deaths at abortion clinics prove it is not safe for the mother. it is by definition not safe for The Unborn Child.

people are not animals. If you cannot care for a child or don't watch children then you shouldn't have unprotected sex. many women who have been raped have chosen to keep their children. there are men and women who are willing to adopt children who are unwanted by their biological parents. there is no reason for most abortions other than selfishness. If you have a health issue you can still get an abortion even if we don't have abortion on demand in all cases. the reasons that are held up to say that abortion is necessary on demand without exception are no longer valid if they ever were.

this is not just a religious issue, it should be a moral View and a legal for anyone who claims to care about women or men. Justice they were wrong in the Civil War when saying that black people weren't people they were property, the Supreme Court is wrong in its 1973 Roe versus decision. don't need Planned Parenthood unlimited abortion on demand for women to have Healthcare provided to them. There are plenty of others agencies that can use that money to expand their services to women without funding abortion. why are you not in favor of that?

Re: “Tucson Salvage: Portrait of a quiet man who long gazes at moments

Always look forward to Tucson Salvage and this is one of my very favorites. How much better would the world be if we set aside our own narrative and just listened - to the wind, to the traffic, to each other. Thank you, Brian, for reminding us all of the beauty and wisdom that awaits when we close our mouths and open our ears.
