Re: “So Long (Again), Tucson Citizen

Tucson wants new business to locate to a city that doesn't even have one decent local daily newspaper anymore? Won't happen unless it's ultimately destructive like Rosemont raping copper and profits from the U.S.A.

Re: “Danehy

I never met Jeff Smith. He was a powerful writer whose work, in my opinion, became increasingly angry and confrontational as the years passed. Maybe that's what living with constant pain does to you. I have met Tom Danehy. I got to know him through City League Basketball. He was a fun and funny guy who played some mean hoops back then. Slow, but not with his assists and he had a nice, soft shot. I think Tom's piece on Jeff says a lot about both of them--two very different and very important Tucson voices. Voices to be appreciated, whether you agree with them or not. Two cents, please.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Varney is President and CEO of the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. His complete lack of understanding of the community he supposedly represents promises a bigger failure for Tucson from the CofC than even our bumbling Mayor and Council provide. Grade Varney F-!

Re: “Grant Road Rage

The only thing wrong with Grant Road is the perpetual plan to widen it . . . someday. That makes real estate along or near it worthless until . . . someday. Want to see a business corridor prosper? Eliminate the unneeded widening and make it reasonable to develop properties and invest in new businesses. Voila, Grant Road, destination, instead of a way to get across town in a hurry . . . someday.

Re: “David Gregory At Least Tried With the NRA's Wayne LaPierre

Hadenough needs to understand how wide the gap is between a liberal and a Marxist. If he's going to lecture us on the history of failed school security, he should get it right. Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff, Neil Gardener, the school security officer at Columbine, exchanged fire with the killers and did so outside the school buildings. Let's not forget, for that matter, that Virginia Tech had it's own police force, or that the shooting at Fort Hood took place on a military base. As always, the real problem is the ease with which guns are available in America--to the mentally ill, to criminals, and to those who otherwise lack the competence or stability necessary to posses deadly weapons.

Re: “Political Roundtable: Barber vs. McSally Overtime Battle, Pima's Slow Vote Count, McCain's Benghazi Crusade & More

According to the Republic, McSally conceded the election at mid-morning on Saturday, 11/17. The Republic called the race for Barber earlier the same day.

Re: “Political Roundtable: Carmona vs. Flake, Antenori vs. Bradley, Wright vs. Miller & More

Steve, thanks for the in-depth response. I'm already aware of most of the issues you mention and am continuing my research on Dr. Carmona. But your opening statement weakens your argument. Surely you're not so naive as to believe no one has ever lied while giving sworn testimony before Congress.

Dr. Carmona also testified before the same committee. "Carmona denied the midnight visits ever happened to House investigators, sources familiar with the inquiry say. Beato did not file a police report or formal complaint against him, and there was no independent way to corroborate what actually happened between them." (Politico 05/21/12)

Beato's claim may be absolutely accurate, but since she didn't file a report or complaint we'll never know. It appears to be an allegation that will be impossible to prove. Under these circumstances, Jeff Flake shouldn't have lowered himself into the slime by signing off on this vile attack ad.
