Re: “Avatar

Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.

This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.

Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.

Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!

Re: “There's Election Integrity, and Then There's Election Integrity

Hillary was terrible candidate and that is true. She was not liked for a long time. The media and SNL and RW radio and blog-monsters have been mocking her since the 1990s without letting up, and I am so glad she is off the stage and makes very little or no news at all these days. She is a dead letter politically, with no chances at running again. Now it's Trump's turn. He makes news every day all day. And he lies. He lies about small matters and he lies about important issues and he lies about people and he stifles the truth with more lies. I guess what bothers me the most these days is that when someone informs some Trump supporters that the man tells lies, they take it personally, as if they are being attacked. Well, that's a shame because Trump is still a liar. The Democrats know it. The Republicans know it. His pants are on fire all the time and, without the Constitution's balance of powers, he will burn our house down.

Re: “There's Election Integrity, and Then There's Election Integrity

Forget Hillary. She lost the election and does not matter anymore.

I do not understand continuing support for Trump when so many lies are proven, and "Yes, I do," accept responsible journalism over Trump Tweets.

So try: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/0…

If you refuse to believe these examples, then keep voting for the man and all he represents.

Re: “DeVos Delays Loan Relief For Students Ripped Off By For-Profit Colleges

I can understand free market forces. They work when the people in charge are moral and lawful and do not use government (or the absence of government) as a blunt instrument to gouge gullible, well meaning students, often leaving them in deep, deep debt with no recourse. And once again, I read comments by a former "public" school superintendent complaining about providing decent opportunities in the public sector. Disgrace ran him out of office and disgrace lingers. It is easy to believe the Huppenthal still thinks any/all critics are "evil scum," and people who receive any public assistance are "lazy pigs," and let pure profit flow to large corporations and executives.

Re: “McSally Declines To Take a Stand on Zombie Trumpcare

Just finished watching the video of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" where Jimmy made one of the most intelligent and heartfelt appeals to "public servants" in Washington DC. His newborn son was born with a heart defect, which even for an innocent little neonate would be a "preexisting" condition. Compared to most, Kimmel is a very rich man, so he did not really have to say what he did. http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/02/entertainmen… Of course, asking to consider compassion has already fallen on some cold, deaf ears in the land of career politicians: http://people.com/babies/jimmy-kimmel-joe-…

Re: “McSally Declines To Take a Stand on Zombie Trumpcare

Why does anyone want to hold a public office if they do not want to express a public position on important public issues that form public policies that directly affect the public?

Re: “Editor’s Note

Yes. You are picking cherries on a forklift. It may be true that urban districts suffer the consequences of too many low SES students, with all accompanying problems, but to lump all school districts across the country as a national disgrace is still unfair. Mismanagement comes with unwieldy size and unfortunate politics. Locally, you can look at Vail and Benson to find good management of resources, high teacher morale and solid performance as measured with both student success and test scores. Yet, the immediate referring to TUSD over and over as an immediately realistic paradigm for all may be a mantra here, but it is nevertheless still a shallow, knee jerk shibboleth. Vouchers will satisfy a tea-party level political position (and may even secretly line your own pockets with public money), but vouchers will not elevate the opportunities of most kids, they will not improve a huge majority of schools that will continue to (try to) function, and they will in no way ensure a prosperous future for the nation as a whole.

Re: “Editor’s Note

TUSD is really rather unique. It is not representative of any other school district in the state. It should not be held up to define and defeat the morale and the professionalism of hardworking people in all the other school districts in the state.
