Wondering why nobody uses a real name in Tucson Weekly comments.

Re: “Danehy

Allen Kath hardly knows "everything". He can't even pronounce Ina & Houghton Roads correctly - something that should be a priority for a so-called Traffic Reporter.

One thing that really bugs me is the number of local reporters who don't know the difference between Streets & Avenues. We often hear about crashes at impossible intersections ... for example Alvernon & Sixth Avenue.

Re: “Got a Bachelor's Degree? There May Be a Public School Teaching Job Waiting For You.

Private & parochial schools have often considered subject knowledge (not always even with a degree) as a reason to assign teachers to classrooms. There's plenty of evidence of success. For several years in the 1980s an anthropology graduate led Tucson students in state Latin competitions, and in summer took groups to Italy. She taught at a small, inexpensive parochial school - not an elite private school.

Re: “Justice Denied: McCain Says He'll Block Any and All of Clinton's Supreme Court Nominees

Hillary Clinton told us exactly what kind of Justices she would nominate during the 2nd debate. If she was being honest (big if) I can't fault McCain for knowing he would vote against any of her nominations.

Re: “Streetcar Driver Disciplined for Passing Bicyclist too Closely

I ride bikes but that guy sounds like a jerk. Sometime before I was 5 years old I learned that vehicles on tracks were expected to stay on the tracks.

Re: “The Drumbeat Begins For Huppenthal To Resign

I may be the only supporter of Thucydides in Tucson, but calls for his resignation are premature. There are still citizens of Arizona who believe in hard work and personal responsibility.

Re: “Danehy

Senator Melvin might have a point about the flags. It's not scientific, but on my street three flags are flown every day. On holidays there are four. That's fewer than a third of the houses on the street, but Republicans live in every one. I have a Republican friend in another state who flies his flag every day (retired military). I'm guessing Melvin could be fairly accurate in his neighborhood conclusions.
