Re: “Tucson Mayor Regina Romero Joins Mayors Against Illegal Guns Organization

Gun violence is a huge issue. Good for the mayor. "The biggest obstacles TPD officers face in the line of duty are the number of guns used in violent crimes, people not storing guns properly and the fact that prohibited possessors can still get their hands on firearms,"

A huge issue is the sheer number of guns and the casual way many legal possessors store them (i.e., unsecured in their cars where they get stolen)

Re: “Pocketbook Politics

Great. A licensed caregiver in a nursing home now makes minimum wage, might as well go do an easier job taking orders at the local fast food joint.

Re: “Charter Schools: The Good, The Bad and The Costly

"IDEA schools have received a quarter of a billion dollars in grants from the federal government over the past decade" -
WOW, that comes to $25 million per year or roughly $500k for an average state. Arizona's K-12 budget is just shy of 6 billion dollars per year so my quick math shows this is 0.001% of the state budget. Hardly worth talking about.

Re: “Negative Reaction

In other news, border enforcement funds were also not allowed to be used to buy crayons for kindergarteners or help fund the county's animal shelter.

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.
