Re: “The Best Things I Ate in 2015

Hooray for breakfast toast! And salmon eggs benedict (also from 5 points, but I know that you could only pick one).

Re: “Monsanto Mania

Mixed feelings here. As an agricultural scientist, I know well our current and future struggles to feed a hungry world. I will get up on a soapbox and praise the benefits of GMOs.

That being said, Monsanto is a monster. At a scientific meeting some years ago, I attended a presentation by a fellow scientist who had done some research on the stated efficacy of a Monsanto-produced herbicide. A representative of this company stood up and berated her until she cried. Yes, cried. Finally, the moderator kicked the asshole out of the room but I saw what happens to people who try and cross them - and what I saw was assuredly only a small, nasty, unprofessional example of them wielding their power.

Monsanto does good work. But they definitely have a public relations problem. They really need to put their efforts there.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Um, if someone can THROW an electric scooter, methinks that he does not NEED an electric scooter. In my opinion.

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

Am sitting here eating my breakfast of cold scone and diet dr. pepper and just drooling over this article. Well done, Tucson Weekly! Kudos for listing Five Points first (though personally I think that their Salmon Eggs Benedict is the brunch of choice - sex on a plate). More kudos for listing Casa Vicente, a Tucson GEM that is often overlooked on such reviews. The tapas are absolutely incredible at CV. LOVE!

Re: “Old-School Ambience

I have never really been one to order meat loaf when there is salmon and steak on the menu. But one night at Cushing Street I was feeling adventurous and MAN - I kid you not - the absolute BEST meat loaf of all time! NOT to be missed! They drizzle it in a maple glaze and it is wonderful. I love this place.

Re: “City to Address Streetcar Gridlock & Rider Delays Following 2nd Saturday Troubles

Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb here. It is HIGHLY possible, even PROBABLE that the ridership was far higher than reported. Why? Because no one watches, or cares, whether you swipe your card or not when you get on. I have ridden the street car a total of 4 times now. Once there was a little nazi kid (a streetcar employee) who told me that "this card swiper is broken" and that I had to go swipe my card at the other end of the car. I ignored him, and so did everyone else who got on. It was crowded and no one wanted to fight their way across the street car to swipe their card. Then this last Monday I got on to ride to work (U of A) and my card once again didn't work in the card swiper. I was tired and feeling lazy, so instead of walking to the other swiper I just had a seat. No one was watching, no one cared. Just sayin' - I'm certain that I'm not the only tired and lazy person in Tucson doing this. Note: in all cases I DID pay a fare, but if they're counting the riders by the number of swipes, the numbers are way, WAY low.
