Re: “The Skinny

As a child I spent countless vacations and weekends with Michael Hard and family in Rocky Point, Flagstaff, Tucson and Phoenix. Michael Hard is a funny, smart and incredibly caring man. His accomplishments in life are abundant, including his terrific family. However, his biggest feat may have been excusing and reversing my innumerable overdraft charges at the Valley Bank while I was an undergrad at the U of A. :)

Indeed, you are very lucky to be a part of the Hard family and to have him as your father in law.

Re: “Doug Ducey, CEO

Response to jhuppent

2016 average public education teacher salary was $47,218 according to your source. That's a whopping $22.70/hr if averaged for year round work. I, for one, don't think that's shit for educating my children and you couldn't pay me enough to work with that much patience around kids all day.

Perhaps you should go back and get a new degree (costing thousands) so you can make that $22.70/hr and buy that house on the hill.

Re: “Trial Over TUSD's Mexican American Studies to Begin in Tucson June 26

Tashima messed up first time around... Arizona government is racially toxic and who can forget nutty Huppenthal's crazy racist blog posts/comments ... Huppenthal, you are a joke wrapped around layers of Lies... and please go back to school and retake spelling and grammar. The Republicans proved Dolores Huerta's comment 100% correct. MAS was a caring, dynamic and highly successful program that even Huppenthal cambium report proved correct as have numerous education studies. Your supporters' racial stereotypes just come out ... the great irony of all this is that Chicano and ethnic studies would be a TREMENDOUS HUMAN benefit to people like you and them ... if you could only understand .... or care. La lucha continua.

Incidentally, the whole point of schooling is social engineering, plain and simple. Teach the masses the way we should think and should act, whether in homeschooling, charters, private schools, religious schools or public schools. It's how we transmit our culture.

Re: “Trial Over TUSD's Mexican American Studies to Begin in Tucson June 26

There are individual excellent high school government/history teachers who indeed teach what bslap is calling for. Speak up if you know some. I know when my son and others were in high school they were given a test which sorted them as to political party that matched their views. We talked about it afterwards. In 6th grade, I provided that kind of information as well as speakers from elected officials of both parties to make certain students were provided a balanced set of information. It is not unheard of, at all. The problem is the kids who choose not to engage when they graduate, and they are more interested in other things. Most adults remember very little from their high school civics classes unless they are political junkies, and few news reporters are useful on this topic.

Our illustrious leader could tweet to his Republican sycophants that he wants a bill on his desk that states anyone who offers aid and comfort to ANY undocumented person regardless of whether that person is gravely ill or not will be prosecuted for breaking the law and incarcerated.

Re: “Border Patrol Agents Bust Migrants Seeking Medical Aid at No More Deaths Desert Camp

The border agents did the job they were hired to do. The Red Cross did the job they volunteered to do.
What is the problem? If the people coming over the border want to enter without harassment, they need get the paperwork completed and walk through the border gate. I love immigrants, I do not like people that break the laws, including you people that speed on the freeway. If you are caught drunk driving, you go to jail. If you break into a person's house you either go to jail or get shot. If you break into the USA, you go to jail and get deported or get shot. What is the problem?

Re: “Atomic Punk

Hey Nutritionist, why bag on the Frog when there's a McDonald's right there on the corner? The kids are bypassing McDonald's on the way to the Frog because the Frog serves good, unprocessed food. You should go complain about McDonald's embalmed mummy burgers instead, since you claim to be a "nutritionist".

Re: “Don't Forget the Coop

Eh, it wasn't meant to be a big deal. I just thought it would be fun trivia/gossip to find out, especially since I have some history with La Paloma and El Conquistador. You know, kind of like seeing an autographed photo of a cool celebrity at a restaurant you like.

I've been planning to come back to my hometown for a while now, so I won't be an "ex" much longer anyway. :)

Re: “The Skinny

What a joy it was to grow up with Mike as my older brother! While Mike and brother Fred were close in age, I came along later in '43 and was nurtured and stood up for by my hero, Mike, who played baseball with me by rounding the bases on his knees to "make it fair". I watched him play football at Pomfret and tried valiently but unsuccessfully to live up the school legend that was Mike Hard.
We both owe the entirety of our life credo to our father Fred Hard, Sr.. As upstanding and hard-working a man ever was, Dad was a legend in the sailing world as much as the most respected of Wall St. traders. His nickname among fellow Exchange members and friends was "Honest".
Nary a day goes by that I don't find myself asking him subconsciously if I'm using the right tool, making the right business decision, tying the right knot, or cobbling together a mechanical device.
His sense of humor was unique, to say the least; one day while heading home in a fog from Fire Island he remarked, "Oh..I know where we are now...I recognize that wave".
Happy Father's Day, "Honest"
