Re: “We Look Smaller in Boston

HumanBean, I usually don't add comments, but I want to correct an assumption you seem to have made. Your comment implies that the Boston schools replaced the Mercatur maps with the Peters projection. If you read the pull-out quote from the article, it states, "Teachers put contrasting maps of the world side by side and let the students study them."

Re: “Streets of This Town: Kick Back

The commenters are missing something here. It's a very good photo: evocative, well composed, just the right tonal range for the subject matter. You can find a similar scene in cities anywhere in the country, but it's tough to make it work as a photo. Brian nailed it accurately and esthetically.

Re: “Fiamme Pizza Napoletana Restaurant Now Open

Just got lunch from Fiamme, a margherita pizza and a caesar salad. Both very good. They have a great wood fired oven in the front of the restaurant. Terrific, chewy crust. (I don't work for the Trump administration, so I can say all this, right?)

Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations

Three Sonorans, you're correct that I donated to Kristel Foster's campaign and would have donated to Cam Juarez's campaign as well except that his website wasn't working properly. I didn't put that information in the post because it is a fact-based post rather than one that expresses an opinion on the TUSD race. However, I probably should have disclosed my support of the two candidates anyway.

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 89. "No More Reading Tea Leaves" Edition

gcb1, let me refer you to two posts I wrote three weeks before the Prop 123 election. If you just read the first few paragraphs of each post, I think you'll understand where I'm coming from and realize that your "I told you so" is unnecessary. I knew what Ducey's Next Step meant back then. If you read further, you'll see why I still voted for Prop 123 (I know we disagree on that, but it states why I thought a Yes vote was the better of two bad options), and you'll find out exactly how much I trust Doug Ducey.
