Re: “Danehy

Why we saw an example of our own Tucson Weekly squelching speech just this past week when they removed and closed all comments for an article.

Re: “Tucson Favorites Nominated for James Beard Awards

A reminder that El Charro owner Ray Flores publicly supports the Rosemont mine abomination. Apparently he doesn't care if our environment is trashed as long as a couple extra miners can afford to buy a few more tacos from him. I haven't eaten in any of his restaurants in years and will refuse to give him one penny of my business.

Re: “Awarding the Ambiance: Steve Roach

Hearts of Space, a weekly syndicated public radio show of ambient/ new age music, frequently feature Roach's music.

Re: “Trumpy See, Trumpy Do: School Bullying In the Age Of Trump

I made this comment on another thread but it is apropos here as well. These "children" chose to wear MAGA hats which was a provocative act in itself. Innocent boys? Not hardly.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Bully Of A Good Time

Here is an example of "real" news correcting a mistake. In this 24 hour news cycle there is a competitive rush to publish and as such inaccuracies will happen. (Early reports of Gabby Gifford's death being a big example). That is also why every newspaper has a column called "Corrections"- to set the record straight when mistakes happen. To characterize these as "lies" is a feeble smear tactic

It should also be pointed out that these "good catholic boys" wearing MAGA hats was a provocative act in itself.

Re: “A Terrible Beauty

Despite Alan Johnson's SHOUTING...he makes a good point. I've traveled past the Sahuarita mine for 45 years and to my perspective the mostly sterile terraces haven't changed one iota. That's what will happen in the Santa Rita Mountains and the scenic beauty will- for all intents and purposes- be destroyed for the lives of many generations.

Re: “Interstate 10: A Personal History

Great article! I nostalgically remember driving at night in the '70's with long stretches of darkness in the distance. There was a peculiar stump at the pull-off just past the Gila River (toward Phoenix) that some jokester painted black and red to resemble a turkey. For years it always brought a smile to my face every time I passed until it finally rotted away into oblivion. There was also a broken down wooden wagon dumped at the end of the frontage road just past the Red Rocks post office. I took the exit one morning and got some nice pictures of that old wagon with Picacho Peak in the background. Finally, a dozen years ago my brother (who had never been to the Southwest) had business in Phoenix and rented a car to drive down for a visit. He raved about the "scenic drive". It's all in one's perspective.
