Re: “City Contemplates E-Scooter Program With New Report

The average distance of a ride is 0.86 miles?? Since when can't people walk 3/4 of a mile?? These horrible things are (as stated above) a blight on the city - riders are inconsiderate, barreling down the center of the sidewalk and NOT paying attention to where they're riding or who they're mowing down. And on any given morning, as I walk my dog through the downtown streets, I am dodging these damn things as they're parked all over the place. Riders seem to relish in parking them purposely ACROSS the sidewalks so they can block our path. I HATE THESE STUPID SCOOTERS! America is fat enough, Tucson - get out and WALK!!

Re: “Danehy

Place: August 30 on the Tucson Streetcar from campus to downtown; Time: Around 5:30 pm. The streetcar was packed. But it was quiet, eerily quiet as I read my magazine. I looked up, and noted that EVERY SINGLE student was staring at their cell phone. Not talking to their neighbor about the weather, not gazing out the windows at our lovely city. Staring. At. Their. Cell. Phone. Something is very wrong with this.

Re: “Backstage Bliss

Maureen, I agree 100% - these are two of the most loving, fun, and colorful people that I'm lucky enough to know. Tucson is very fortunate to have them. Love you, Kris and Cathy!!

Re: “Police Dispatch

As a UA professor, I find this report very disturbing. I assume that no crime was committed, so the correct response was to refer it to the Dean of Students - I sincerely hope that the Dean of Students took this issue seriously and that this student will no longer be attending UA. What this student did was NOT okay on any level. Wow.

Re: “Danehy: Tom takes on the anti-vax community

I was born in the early 1960s and, like all kids of my generation, I received full vaccinations as an infant. Since that time, two events have strongly shaped my outlook on vaccines.

The first was in the early 1970s, when my family moved to NJ. Our next door neighbors, a large family, had an oldest son who had contracted polio at the age of 8. When we met him, he was in his late teens, dependent on two crutches to move, and (understandably) angry at the world. It broke my heart to see this kid struggling his way through high school (you KNOW how mean kids can be) and facing a life of hardship that COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. I could not believe that his parents hadn't vaccinated their children.

When I was ready to enter graduate school in the mid-1990s, I was informed that I had to receive an MMR vaccine - even though I had my vaccination records, I was told that a booster was necessary. It was made absolutely clear to me that, without this vaccine, I would not be permitted to enter graduate school. That's the way it SHOULD BE!!!

I am absolutely appalled by the anti-vaxxer movement. Disgusted and horrified. I think that parents who choose not to vaccinate should be charged with child abuse.

Re: “Three’s a Crowd: Randi Dorman

Wow lc69hunter - that is an extremely open-minded comment. Since when is this the norm in Arizona?

(Just kidding - I went to Ms. Dorman's kickoff and I was extremely impressed. I am keeping an eye on this one.)
