Re: “TUSD Magnet Schools, Desegregation, and the Next Step

POSTIMPRESSIONIST: IMHO, the IQs and GPAs we should be concerned with are those of TUSD Board members, TUSD administrators, office staff and teachers. We have no data on these. Glib and smug are not indicators of intelligence.

Re: “You Can Now Avoid the Grant/Kolb/Tanque Verde Intersection

Second that, TDENTON1138. TW has never been constrained by journalistic ethics. Not their job.

Re: “The Skinny

The bus system suffers because ridership is concentrated among the poor and the young. I suggest closing city and county employee parking lots and offering discounted bus passes. Pressure school districts, the University and hospitals to follow suit and we'd transform Tucson. Time to become a city instead of a swarm of gas-guzzling roadbugs.

Re: “Teachers (and Administrators) in TV and Film: The Final Episode (though there's always the possibility of a sequel)

Looks like your filmography is a work in progess, sir. May I nominate the 1988 film Stand And Deliver, starring Edward James Olmos to your list? Or does it fail to qualify due to being based on the true story of math teacher Jaime Escalante?

I don't see Dead Poets Society (1989) up there either.

Although these films do not invalidate your hypothesis, an all-inclusive list with a longer timeline would improve your data set. Since your Editor evidently finds enough merit in your argument to spend ink on it, perhaps the Weekly's film critics can be put to good use here.

Re: “Wired: A-10 Warthog "Is Ruthlessly Effective, and the Grunts on the Ground Absolutely Love It Because It Keeps Them Safe"

Why don't the Air Force just transfer the A-10 and the entire ground support misdion to the Army?

That would fix everything.

Re: “How Did a Trampoline Park Open Here Without Someone Telling Me?


Surely gravity will help the gliders and blimps maintain different altitudes.

Re: “Editor's Note

I hope you merely forgot to make the Nintzel masterpiece you cite accessible to the reader by using a live link in your online versions of this Editors Note.
