Re: “Avatar

Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.

This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.

Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.

Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!

Re: “Tucsonans Travel to D.C. To Argue Against the Republican Tax Bill

Real tax reform would be a good thing. The last time was 1986, and rigorous review, bipartisan input, and months of open hearings were painstakingly applied before any vote took place. This "reform" was shoddy and blindly accepted without any of that. The final printed version before the vote was a disgraceful mess of last minute cross outs, hand written edits and porky additions. I hope that all those citizens and politicians who supported this messy legislation will honestly appraise its future effectiveness. Give it 5 years to sink in. At least these 8 folks felt some conscience and tried to give warning. But in the end, "Neither Flake nor McCain were available to meet with the group," and we now know something strange got done. Never again can we trust the "deficit hawks" in Washington, DC.

Re: “Why Teachers Are Leaving (And New Teachers Aren't Replacing Them)

I am waiting for the hate TUSD (including Huppenthal) trolls to arrive, so readily with DS columns, and start ridiculing. Teaching is not an easy job and it continues to get harder on many levels, some which are never seen by the public. Most teachers deserve better because they work hard (some do construction in the summer), they must tolerate disrespect from know-it-alls who know little about the day-to-day pressures, and they work in a state close to number 50 in every area of support for their work. All this happens after they must go though years of preparatory studies, at least for now.

Re: “It's 'Tucson Unified' Now

At the bottom of all 50 states, our schools continue to sit, a fact always worth noting: near the very bottom of all 50 in every category. We stay there because of hard core bickering by politicians, charter school proponents and citizen grouches who never go near schools and resent every cent spent on someone else's kids. Voting in the affirmative doesn't seem to matter. The super majority of politicians in Phoenix has proven they will nullify election results they don't like. People actually can be public school superintendents and despise the idea of public education. Not what the founders envisioned.

Re: “Arizona's Un-Credential. Is It the Beginning Of the End Of Teaching As a Profession?

The short answer is, "Yes."

Re: “There's Election Integrity, and Then There's Election Integrity

Hillary was terrible candidate and that is true. She was not liked for a long time. The media and SNL and RW radio and blog-monsters have been mocking her since the 1990s without letting up, and I am so glad she is off the stage and makes very little or no news at all these days. She is a dead letter politically, with no chances at running again. Now it's Trump's turn. He makes news every day all day. And he lies. He lies about small matters and he lies about important issues and he lies about people and he stifles the truth with more lies. I guess what bothers me the most these days is that when someone informs some Trump supporters that the man tells lies, they take it personally, as if they are being attacked. Well, that's a shame because Trump is still a liar. The Democrats know it. The Republicans know it. His pants are on fire all the time and, without the Constitution's balance of powers, he will burn our house down.

Re: “There's Election Integrity, and Then There's Election Integrity

Forget Hillary. She lost the election and does not matter anymore.

I do not understand continuing support for Trump when so many lies are proven, and "Yes, I do," accept responsible journalism over Trump Tweets.

So try: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/0…

If you refuse to believe these examples, then keep voting for the man and all he represents.
