Re: “A Little Late To the 'Patriotically Correct' Party

There is a power shift happening as we sit here. Even talk show hosts, basketball players, football players are getting into the action. The old power structure (Why hasn't Kaepernick been hired yet?) is beginning to show signs of age. And people are speaking up (Steve Kerr!) . I'm surprised it's happening as fast as it is. What's next?

Re: “BASIS Connives to Maintain Its Elite Charter School Status in Baton Rouge

Another fascinating story by David Safier. Sure, there are other viewpoints (the comments above), but David's tells something which has been ignored by much of the press. Good to hear both sides of the story by commenters and by David, but where else do you get a report like David's? Much appreciated.

Re: “Tucson Marches for Equality

This is what democracy looks like! What an experience to be part of this march, to hear our Mayor Rothschild give a supportive speech, to see and hear enthusiasm for joining together to support what so many of us believe in: autonomy over our own bodies, women's rights, support for the downtrodden. Congratulations, Tucson Weekly for the great video. I have sent it onward via Youtube.

Re: “The New York Times is Telling the Story of How Tucson Became an 'Unlikely Food Star'

Maybe it's just as well she didn't mention LE BUZZ (Catalina Highway and Tanque Verde Rd.) which has their own roasted coffees from exotic places, but also their own bakery ....... croissants to die for. It's getting much too crowded......just celebrated 20 years in Tucson. CONGRATULATIONS, MARGARET! WE
LOVE LE BUZZ! ( The LE is pronounced the French way).

Re: “Study: Excessive Administrative Expenses at Charter Schools Cost Taxpayers $128 Million Per Year

So glad to get the Weekly online and such an impressive piece by David Safier and the first commenter as well. We moved here in 1965 from NYC, kids walking to great little Wrightstown Elementary. Now... Wrightstown has been .razed and is surrounded by Charters. "a state with one of the lowest per pupil funding rates in the nation where the legislature persists in refusing to pay the schools money the courts hae ordered them to pay" (from first commenter). That says it all.

Re: “Narco News' Bill Conroy Pays Amazing Respect to Charles Bowden (Read it Now)

Chuck was on a radio program on border issues some years ago with a group of newspeople. When he spoke, he cut through all the blather to the truth. The contrast between what he said and the platitudes of the rest was marked. A remarkable man and a privilege to have heard him then.
