Re: “What Will It Take For Arizona's Education Funding to Catch Up With Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and That Distant Star, West Virginia?

Reductions in immigration would help. When people look at the districts and see that they are educating children of illegal immigrants, they are much less likely to want to pay more for that - or even force the rich to do so.

Re: “Rep. Grijalva Responds to Report of Mistreatment in Eloy Detention Center

Conditions at the center are likely far better than the homes people left to go there. We can't house the entire population of Central America.

Re: “Who Guards the Guardsmen?

Raul believes that northward migration is a God-given right of all people living in the southern areas of the Western hemisphere and the will of the American people be damned. Once you realize that, his positions make sense.

Re: “Danehy

Oh my, I agree with Tom. Time to re-assess my viewpoint.
It's terribly sad that a tiny percentage of people have this particular mental illness that makes them uncomfortable with how they are made. It's also sad that society gender roles are so strict that it adds to their discomfort. But re-ordering our entire society and language and pretending that they are really a different sex is not the way to help them and the inconsistencies of this approach are starting to show.
We should be compassionate, kind, flexible, but also respectful of the truth when dealing with the condition of gender dysphasia. If someone thought they were a dog, you would be compassionate, kind, get them all the help they needed, but you wouldn't pretend they actually were one and feed them dogfood and lead them around on a leash.

Re: “The Skinny

Party affiliation was visible on the envelope? That's crazy. That needs to be changed immediately.

Congratulations to the winners, and good luck. I'm sure nothing will change as developers continue to run the city. Turnout was, indeed, impressive. And thank heaven voters overwhelmingly vetoed the silly sanctuary proposition. Tucson doesn't need to waste time inserting itself into national politics.

Re: “New, Quieter Tram Debuts in Sabino Canyon

Kudos to all involved. This is a massive improvement.

The road to bear canyon wasn't completed till the 60's - maybe that's what Anne is referring to.

Re: “Supervisors Approve Plan to Fix All County Roads in 10 Years

Arizona Native - The county doesn't increase valuations - the market does. From one Native to another, that's called inflation.
The county needs to stop funding road construction for far flung developments that can't pay for their infrastructure maintenance over time.
