    The guy may have the right to photograph. He does NOT -- or should NOT -- have the right to shout obscenities for no other reason than to shout obscenities. That's beyond freedom of speech -- that's pretty much interfering with an officer. Because it's nighttime, it's difficult to see the context of all this, but such language -- used obviously to try to get the officer to lose her cool (which, to her credit, she seemed not to) -- seems to be way out of line.

    Too bad you missed two by C.J. Shane, "Desert Jade" (about immigration and human trafficking) and "Dragon's Revenge" (about Chinese immigration in early Tucson). Both take place in Tucson and are fast-paced mysteries.

    Another place is Cat Mountain Station, with Cactus Wren Artisans and some 60 local and statewide artists. It's at 2740 S. Kinney Rd. Also there is Coyote Pause Cafe, Buffalo Trading Post (a variation of Buffalo Exchange) and Tintype Mercantile. This is a wonderful destination with a lot of interesting items plus breakfast/lunch.
