Re: “Digital Debate

One thing NOT considered in this conundrum is whether the AUTHOR is receiving a share of the price set and why authors have started much more self publishing their work.

Yes, the big boys of publishing have the marketing, publicity and design chops to push a book - and those do cost. But they too often short change authors with. contracts that do not include a better piece of the pie when higher priced multiple read copies are sold or licensed, even when, as in the case of E Books the costs are marginal.

As for metering the reads -- it is not a bad idea IF authors are compensated commensurably.

And, to me, libraries are a root of freedom of ideas for those of us who cannot afford huge libraries.

Re: “Lesson Plan: Pima Community College

It would seem to me that Pima would be a natural place to create a degree in Alternative Energy Systems. bringing together majors in solar, wind and storage technologies.

Re: “Cold and Tired: Liam Neeson is out for revenge—again

Neeson's best role -- "Gun Shy." A reluctant DEA agent with the luck of some strange force that protects the terrified agent. It goes well beyond the LOL stage to dark humor that actually stays in mind on your own way to bliss in the face of impossible odds. (There is a copy on y-tube.)

Re: “Danehy: Valentine’s Day Edition

I find that "love" is a very limiting word in English. covering everything from passion to the love of a child, through art appreciation and the love of a professional wrestling character. We need a better vocabulary.

Ancient Greeks and current Roman Catholics have a term "agape'" do describe love which, between the common ancient use and today's use in the official Catholic canon have very different meanings.

The love expressed ion a valentine commercial sense can be sincere and cheesy at the same time.

Yes, we should celebrates the emotions of love in all their depth and width -- but carefully decide what we mean when we say "love" to an individual.

Re: “Congressman Raul Grijalva Does His Own SOTU Response

Thank you Congressman Grijalva for representing those of us who understand that progressive regulation of of corrosive unbridled crony capitalism is NOT socialism, but a well reasoned monitoring (investigations included) of what OUR government is doing to make the general pursuits of happiness, life and liberty in this nation applies to ALL of us, not just the privileged few.

I see a number of responses here are ad hominem attacks on you and regurgitations of off-kilter and made-up statistics. It is amazing how some people can lie to get their own way when it comes to using the force of government to create ill will and adverse opinion no matter how valid the opinion and facts may be.

While there have been times I have disagreed on some issues, you have always been open to listening to facts and arguments from many sides, and understand the current administration does not. That important thing is that listening, considering and compromising based on the needs of all concerned is not surrender, but is good government.

This is a lesson current Republicans seem to refuse to learn -- and no longer want to be part of any education allowed to the public by the government. They seem to adhere to the principle of believing their own lies.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: No

^The wall is not the issue here. The issue is whether the executive should be able to completely shut down the government over ONE budget item or program desire The wall (barrier) is Trump's try to demonstrate he is boss and will get what he wants regardless of the will of the people as demonstrated through their representatives.
