Re: “Matter of Record

That the indigenous inhabitants of southern AZ had no easy access to voter registration forms is shocking. Voting is a right and the process of registration should be easy and readily accessible. Gabriella Cazares-Kelly comes from good family in Pisinemo, a village located on the west side of the Tohono O'Odham reservation. She will do a good job as Pima County Recorder.

Re: “Danehy

Danehy, as usual, gets part of the story right - and part wrong. He's a pretty sloppy historian. Francisco Villa, was a mixed bag. He did both bad things and good. He was a pretty good governor of Chihuahua and pro-American UNTIL the Wilson regime did two things in October 1915 - it recognized Venustiano Carranza (another bad actor on the revolutionary scene, who cozied up to the Germans) and allowed Mexican troops to cross into the United States in Texas, and travel in nine troop trains to El Paso Texas, where they then crossed over into New Mexico on the Phelps Dodge -owned El Paso & Southwestern Railroad and on through Columbus, NM to Douglas, AZ, where they crossed over into Agua Prieta to reinforce the besieged Constitutionalist forces under the command of Plutaro Elias Calles. Once so reinforced, the defenders were able to easily slaughter Villa's forces when they attacked. In Villa's eyes, attacking Columbus, NM (a town that owed its existence to the EP & SW) made sense. Doing so was payback to the U.S. government and to the railroad. A statue to Villa, as well-made as it is, (except for the lack of tanates on the horse) is inappropriate for Tucson. Villa and his henchmen murdered both Americans and Mexicans. I'd recommend taking it down and replacing it with a statue of one of the following: Estevan Ochoa, Mariano Samaniego, Leopoldo Carrillo, Federico Ronstadt, any one of the many members of the Elias family, or one of the many other Tucsonenses who made a significant contribution to the history of Tucson. Send Villa back across the line to Palomas, Chihuahua.

Re: “Danehy

Masks are not a political statement. The virus doesn't give a shit whether you are conservative, liberal or just apathetic. It just wants to sicken or kill you. Being a fool and not taking sensible precautions makes it easier for it to do so. Wear a mask to protect others. And encourage them to do the same to protect you. It's a no-brainer.

Re: “Coronavirus Update: Second Death from COVID-19; AZ Confirmed Cases Now at 152

If you want to see what this virus is doing to the already-compromised and elderly, google Milan and and Bergamo, Italy. I interviewed an MD in Milan on Saturday and he told me a horror story about conditions there - and keep in mind that Milan and Bergamo have some of the most modern and well-equipped hospitals in Europe. Medical services have been overwhelmed by the number of cases. There are insufficient ICU beds for all the serious cases and doctors are having to euthanize dying patients for whom there are no ventilators and other life-saving equipment. Take this seriously, follow CDC guidelines. The only way to keep this from becoming a medical disaster is to flatten the curve - keeping the number of serious cases from reaching the level where there are no more ICU beds. Otherwise we will have a nightmare on our hands.

Re: “MUST WATCH: Now Team McCain Veterans Are Coming After McSally: "You'll Be Remembered As Just Another Trump Hack"

McSally (or as she is known in Cochise County, Silly McPutty) is a political coward who doesn't have the courage to face her constituents except in very scripted circumstances. Like our grifter-in-chief, she is more concerned about herself than she is about fulfilling the oath she swore when she became Arizona's unelected senator. Like Trump, she should be excreted from the body politic.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

She's not a fighter pilot., as she claimed. She flew an A-10 Thunderbolt II, which is an attack aircraft - a light bomber. Martha McSally is a political coward and an empty flight suit. She will lose to Mark Kelly. Good riddance to her. She will probably find a comfy sinecure in the military-industrial complex.

Ally Miller lives in Wolkenkuckkucksland - a bizarre place where up is down, night is day and reality is however she perceives it.
