Re: “Editor's Note

This edition of the Tucson Weekly catapulted my interest with the Jack Dykinga piece and the one about the Ironwood National Monument. Great content! Thanks. Jack Dykinga is one of my all time heroes.

Re: “Review Re-ignites Battle Over Federal Land Use

What has been abused is our public land! Extraction corporations ... livestock grazers, miners, loggers ... take, take, take to the detriment of wildlife and wise use for long term benefits. We need more national monuments, more wilderness areas, more national parks NOT less. tRump and his oligarchs are destroying our public land heritage.

Re: “Danehy

Allen P ... the former family members and ex-friends turned on me, when they voted for tRump, who is methodically destroying much of what is very important to me. Bolstering the 'for profit' health care industry, liquidating public land, reversing environmental protection, cutting public school funding, and a long list of other attacks on government policies that help people. Government is not bad. There are many policies that benefit the majority of people in the United States. tRump is the one who fooled voters. His lies are legion. Our children should note just how devious this sonofabitch is and how he has destroyed the United States standing in the world.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. Danehy wrote another outstanding column. I agree 100% about talking to the fools who voted for tRump. In fact, I disowned family members who did and withdrew from friendships, some decades long, with idiots who voted for the rotten sonofabitch tRump. The cult of ignorance leads to completely mistaken opinions and votes that are so far fetched, only the ignorant could possibly believe them ... like thinking tRump is going to help anyone other than the rich get richer, particularly himself and his spawn.

Re: “RIP, Author and Activist Kathryn Ferguson

The disrespect toward Kathryn Ferguson exhibited by some of these comments is disgusting. She is a wonderful author who contributed greatly to humanity.

Re: “RIP, Author and Activist Kathryn Ferguson

Sad, sad news. I met Kathryn Ferguson for the first time at the Tucson Herpetological Society booth at the Tucson Festival of Books last month. She autographed a copy of The Haunting of the Mexican Border for me. This is a major loss for everyone who loves La Frontera.

Re: “Carmona Takes The Gloves Off

The Pima County Sheriff's office has a history of corruption. Way back, a Sheriff Martin was accused of participating in the operation of whore houses. Not so long ago, Sheriff Burr's management nearly led to a shoot out among deputies. Now this. Sounds like it's still the wild west with a bad sheriff in charge today. Given Dr. Carmona's information, it's clear that Mr. Napier is the choice for voters.
