Re: “Police Dispatch

Best "Police Dispatch" story I've ever seen! Thank you.

Re: “Danehy

I won't even try to understand somebody who can listen to pompous buffoon Rush Limbaugh (& I consider myself a right-wing Conservative), but you should expect remarks limited to other people like you who seem to find it worthwhile.

The one comment that seems to be agreed on by people of all ages - even students - is the violent video game factor. Canada banned them years ago.

Re: “Big Bucks Conservative Donors Beyond the Koch Brothers

Ken Solar - You're forgetting that many countries, some states, and famously Henry Ford, instituted higher wages, maximum work hours, and a long list of other benefits totally without unions. Some unions actually worked to create rules that worsened working situations many employees enjoyed. Today it's no secret unions have been an important factor in our horrible public education & the loss of industries & jobs to other countries.

Re: “The Weekly List: 23 Things To Do In Tucson This Week

I don't understand all the dislikes on JCC's comment. I feel the same way. It seems pointless to read the Tucson Weekly's "Things To Do In Tucson This Week" just to see what we might have done last week.

Re: “Assistance League's Volunteers are looking out for the Tucson Community

I have nothing but respect for the Assistance League of Tucson, but the grammatically incorrect quote from Helen Van Auken (a retired principal and teacher) is probably an example of why Tucsonans have so little respect for TUSD.

Re: “Hey! What Happened To the Arizona Monitor Website?

Sounds like typical Wardist shenanigans. The rest of us would never have known about the life & death of the Monitor without reading it here. There are still some well-known "conservative political-messaging sites" that can be trusted. I'd expect sensible endorsements of Martha McSally.

Re: “Unpacking a Great Hearts Charter School's Hair Braiding Story

I do think reversing the decision was right, but hair braids as "part of an African American cultural tradition" is true for women, but only a recent fashion statement for men. They're every bit as much of a trend as shaved heads, Mohawks, rats tails, pony tails, or unnatural hair dyes. The school has a right to a dress or hair code, but it should be based on cleanliness or distraction. Students should be allowed a right to argue against any dress code.

I wish the idea of "girls were expected to wear dresses or skirts" - not even culottes - in Tucson Public Schools before the 1970s had some justification when I was a kid. The expense & discomfort of special school clothes for girls was the worst sexism I remember in my entire life (67 years).
