Re: “Never Going Back to Tucson

A right to work state, can be a rough road. For a person with the wrong working skills, and low ambition.

The blue states, pay a janitor $30 an hour, and Benifits. In Tucson its $15 an hour and no benefits.

The warmer states , are harder for some.

Re: “Never Going Back to Tucson

A great article, from a gifted writer. He could replace the word Tucson, with Fargo in my case. The coldest, windiest place to the hottest place. I love the desert, and Im an air conditioning repairman the same age as the writer, about 60-65 I guess. And Im still on hot roofs 42 years later.

But I love the desert , once it gets ahold of you, its owns you. The good , bad and ugly. A right to work state, hard for a lot of people to make it. Vs the blue union states , where a janitor makes $25 an hour. Give me the warm weather and its struggles any day.. I lived in Fargo North Dakota 20 years.

The writer could have replaced the word Tucson, with 1000 different towns in our country. By 1000 different men and women, who didnt have ambition, and purpose.

This is more about lack of ambition, and success and happiness. Then it is about Tucson.

I loved his article, I love his free spirit. But that free spirit comes with a price.
