We have lived in Green Valley for 11 years and enjoy it here. We miss the wonderful west coast eateries but love the desert.

Re: “Bianchi's

Oh my gosh. Blah-anchi's. Crap-anchi's. No, really. My husband had the meatball sandwich and I have the lasagna. Yuk! So flavorless and blah. We could be wrong but from the looks of their pizzas, we suspect they are on par with what you might get at a school cafeteria.

Re: “Vero Amore Is Moving to the Old Luna Bella Spot in Plaza Palomino

Oh great! Just what we need. Another lackluster Tucson restaurant in the ghostly, always half vacant Plaza Palomino.

Re: “Digging for Dollars

It just goes to show our government isn't serious about "winning the war on drugs." And even if we wanted to win, organizations like the ACLU make sure the criminals have more rights than law enforcement.

Re: “Being Baldenegro

I'll dislike how the libs continue to omit the word illegal. "Anti-immigrant?" No! Anti-illegal immigrant, yes. Anyhow. I'm not entirely sure what the current state of Chicano studies is at our colleges. However, one thing is for sure. While is a little off topic, MEChA sure is alive and well. MEChA: "The Hispanic movement to establish an Hispanic nation in the Southwestern United States: California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, and portions of Nevada, Utah, and Colorado." Oh that's reassuring. Look. Even our VERY liberal friends over at Stanford University, for example, frown on such groups and movements. In any case, I respect anyone who stand up for what is right-regardless of color, background, etc.

Re: “Best Goth/Leather Shop

Dark Star has been around since the 70s and remains the best place for leather products in Tucson as far as we know. We shop here about once a year or so and have been very happy with the service and leather goods. Classy location too.

Re: “OPA!

I find it odd that and Greek restaurant serves spaghetti and they uses large flour Mexican tortillas as gyro wraps. Except for the watered down humus, my main course was pretty decent though. The lamb was tender and tasty. I should also mention, for readers sake, that it took several minutes before we were seated and they weren't not that busy. They also brought our food and forgot to set the table before hand, no silverware! The latter two aspects are why I chose to give Opa a two overall.

Re: “You Say You Want a Revolution

Talk about another highly biased, far left article. Tucson Weekly is clearly geared toward naive college students and old hippies. By the way, with our nation's economy the way it is, why should Arizona continue to be a "free lunch" state anyhow? Personally, I'm not ready to pay a 60% tax like the Swedes do so that everyone can have things like, free health care, AHCCCS. If you don't like what's going on then move to the island of Utopia.

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

They basically serve truck stop food. Actually it's not all that bad, unless you care about eating healthy that is. A heap of food for not too much. Works for some I suppose.
