Re: “Danehy

I honestly believe we have had our day with elderly white men. I own that... I am one. I do not believe that his penchant to speak, show vulnerability and act according to instinct can be faulted. His presentation is an honest representation of how he got to be who he is. That said, he is and always has been a second choice. It would not be hard to give anyone a pass in the time of tRump. I, for one, do not want to settle for a pass or a second choice. I dislike voting against someone or something. I want to vote for someone or something that I can believe in, aspire to support, and work actively on the behalf of. The time to shovel shit out of the Whitehouse is after we anoint leadership to ascertain a constructive use for the rubble left by the what needs to be the previous administration.

Re: “Hands off the Wheel

The ethics of AI and automation have not caught up with the social impact and quantum probabilities that what were once roadways uses that included adventure and pleasure in addition to commerce, are now being monitored by business but supported by the travelers. There should be a hefty fee to support the examination of the social and environmental impacts of the complete monetization of infrastructure intended to support multipurpose activity and designed for an era when the technology served the human condition, not damaged it. A synchronicity approaches!

Re: “Danehy

Cut the cord, steam what little is worth watching. They are giants of cable bloat who simply want to milk you for a steady stream of cash, keeping you stupid while simultaneously cultivating the worst in human nature. Amid all of that, allow you to believe that you are informed instead of being formed.

Re: “Never Going Back to Tucson

Tucson found me an 8 year old boy in a cold-war world of 1961 beneath the desks of Bonillas Elementary during a "a-bomb" drill and exploring the "American Homes" district of 22nd and Swan... cheap, barebones Camelot ghetto for the hardworking Union man that was my dad and the aspiring Jackie-O mom in a spaghetti-strap sundress, wheeling in a '59 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. That began a love affair with a town, it's people and the charm of diversity that was the jewel of the American Sonoran Desert. Alice Vail, Palo Verde, the UofA... years and my family came and went to and from Tucson so many times, and the pattern that formed a jig saw puzzle created an obsession with my child hood sweetheart in the shadows of the Catalinas, that one day I will complete and finally see my vision like a big bowl of celebration named pazole on the tabletop of my return to the old pueblo of my heart.

Re: “Saying Goodbye to Our Friend and Contributor, M. Scot Skinner

The days bawdy sunset remains
And the potholes of 22nd Street
still swallow the naive
The miracle mile fades in fame
A-mountain sleeps with one less name
Quietly, time chronicals
the people and the pueblos passing
