Re: “Interview With TUSD Board Member Leila Counts

Leila, I'm sorry to hear you share an echo chamber with David Safier. I wish we could replace you with the person who wrote the comment immediately above.

Re: “The Star Published a Wildly Misleading Story about TUSD Enrollment

Journalists generally do not make good data analysts. (To be fair,most data analysts probably wouldn't make good journalists either.) But I believe news organizations should have at least one person on staff with the skills to review stories like this and help reporters and readers put numbers in perspective.

Re: “The Skinny

McSally has already shown an independent streak. Rather than go issue by issue, take a look at The Heritage Foundation's conservatism ratings for Arizona senators and congressmen. Most of Arizona's GOP members score in the 80-90% range for voting conservative (as judged by Heritage) position. Last I looked, McSally's conservatism score was 43%. Not non-ideological enough for you? Then maybe your tract is more about political parties than policy.

Re: “Never Mind Donald Trump!

How did a political story expressly not about Donald Trump launch a comment thread that is entirely about Donald Trump and his opponent? For Dems, the Trump campaign might be hard to turn away from. But for many of us Republicans, it's hard to watch.

Most of this year's state and local elections aren't all that interesting, but at least they offer a diversion from the disaster that is our presidential race,

Re: “The Skinny

I'll skip the lengthy inventory of Trump's glaring inadequacies and simply say McSally is doing the smart thing. I hope she continues holding off supporting Trump. The Vichy wing of the GOP will be remembered as such.

Re: “Flight Risks

Very poor job of listing GOP objections. Left out the very high error rate the no-fly list is known for. Was that omission intentional? Come on, Mr. Nintzel, let's be truthful.

Re: “Tucson Sentinel is Going to Photograph Every Mile of the Arizona-Mexico Border

I expect we will need to excuse them for taking some of the pictures from afar. I can't envision Tucson journalists hugging the border along the crest of the Tule Mountains, for example. And will the 197th mile be particularly interesting? How about the 196th?
