Re: “High-Flying Chicken

All the buildup, all the "press" coverage, and the flight of ChickenShip One is scrubbed.
I'll be over at Arby's, awaiting updates.

Re: “Danehy

Allen P ... the former family members and ex-friends turned on me, when they voted for tRump, who is methodically destroying much of what is very important to me. Bolstering the 'for profit' health care industry, liquidating public land, reversing environmental protection, cutting public school funding, and a long list of other attacks on government policies that help people. Government is not bad. There are many policies that benefit the majority of people in the United States. tRump is the one who fooled voters. His lies are legion. Our children should note just how devious this sonofabitch is and how he has destroyed the United States standing in the world.

Re: “Danehy

great article! - another point is the amount of disposable time that they spend on entertainment - they make choices - be entertained or spent that time becoming more informed. Look at many people in their 40's, 50's, 60's and older - their education stopped when they finished school - and now they get it from for profit media - being informed is not a priority - and that attitude is passed down to their children. Granted, not everyone - but definitely the majority that I see.

Re: “Danehy

Disowned family members and turned on friends in a country that allows freedom of expression. Take a listen to yourself. That is pitiful that you place so much hope for your happiness on government. How did you let that happen?

The name calling is so childish and ignorant. Another one educated into ignorance? Pay attention children, this is the death of the democratic party, that no longer has the ability to fool voters.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. Danehy wrote another outstanding column. I agree 100% about talking to the fools who voted for tRump. In fact, I disowned family members who did and withdrew from friendships, some decades long, with idiots who voted for the rotten sonofabitch tRump. The cult of ignorance leads to completely mistaken opinions and votes that are so far fetched, only the ignorant could possibly believe them ... like thinking tRump is going to help anyone other than the rich get richer, particularly himself and his spawn.

Re: “High-Flying Chicken

Our tax dollars at work! Now Tucson has a true competitor to The Thing out east on I-10, although in terms of weirdness it will still have to compete with the Pima County Board of Soup Advisors.

Yes, the illegal aliens did overstep some bounds for sure when they invaded our country.

Re: “Danehy

That's just it Killian, they don't. Except in this man's confused and angry world. One of these has already turned their elitist ideas into gun fire.

They need to stop thinking they have all the answers because it is clear they don't.

"Empower the police to eradicate it."

Yeah, that's the answer. Thanks, Kathy.

Re: “Danehy

I have trouble with your description of Trump supporters and the people I know who support him. With the exception of my hairdresser who thinks Hillary was 'too deceitful' to vote for, they are educated, knowledgeable people. One is a nurse practitioner, one is a Certified Nurse Anesthetist, one is a teacher, and one is a former state department employee. They all have high-paying jobs and graduate degrees. How do they fit in with the stereotype of people we have of Trump supporters as uneducated, underemployed yahoos?

Thanks for that great analysis of where we are and how we got here. Trying to convince kids that it is cool to be smart is not easy!

Gentrification at it's finest. I bet they rent the place for next to nothing.

Re: “Grand Glazed Opening

On that note it is really sad what is happening to Tucson neighborhoods because of drugs and crime. Crime and drugs? It's the old chicken or egg argument. I wish that our elected officials would shine the light on the problem and empower the Police to eradicate it.

What do they gain by ignoring it?

Re: “Grand Glazed Opening

@Sonoranwinds

The stories a few officers I know have told me about that area are enough to keep anyone away. They have multiple stories of people stabbing and robbing strangers directly in front of them. Even the presence of a police officer is not enough to dissuade some of these junkies. It wasn't that long ago that the liquor store just west of that Circle K was busted for selling prepackaged free-base kits, no joke. Maybe Amy's is counting on the all those junkies having a sweet tooth and extra cash but a 24 hour business model in that area? Good luck. I hope none of their employees get hurt in the inevitable robberies. Adjusted for population density, this is one of the most dangerous spots in the entire city.

Re: “Desert Ordeal

They need more people telling them not to come and we need border security that does not allow them to put themselves at risk. That would solve lots of problems. Instead bleeding hearts try to compartmentalize their thoughts and actions . This really doesn't serve anybody well.

Re: “Grand Glazed Opening

@rcmitchell - i used to buy gas at the Circle K next door but was harassed by panhandlers so much I found another station. I complained to the Circle K regional management who promised to get a security guard for that store but they never followed up.

No woman traveling solo should risk doing business anywhere in that area, including the "great" new Walmart store. Or maybe you need to open carry ... and I don't mean beer.

Re: “Dems Ask Judge To Knock Indie Candidate from November City Council Ballot

Uh...the union is backing the democratic status quo. They need to get the account balances up on the pension plans first. Then they might allow some money to go to pothole repairs. How many motorcyclists must die first? No telling.
